Career Design Agent
As predictable career paths are disappearing, we need more than ever creativity and collaboration to envision sustainable solutions for a meaningful career. As a Career Design Agent, you can help Aalto students navigate in this rapidly transforming world of work by sharing your own experiences. You can also take the lead in helping other alumni – and yourself! – in career redesign by starting an alumni peer group.
Tell students about your experiences
Nothing is more inspiring and useful for students in their career exploration than our alumni's unique career stories. As an alumni agent, you can tell your story at an event or webinar or have it written out to be shared on our website.
Alumni of the School of Business can share their experience also in school-specific career events. Read more here.
Engage in single-session career conversations
In career design workshops and courses, Aalto students need to ideate and experiment with possible career options. One of their tasks is to prototype their ideas by interviewing people already in the field. Career Design agents are designated alumni who the students can look up in out our Alumni Circle platform to ask for a prototype conversation.
Contribute your expertise in a career workshop
We run several career workshops and webinars for our students throughout the year, often collaborating with our partners. Share your expertise on job search, career development or a given professional/industrial field as a co-facilitator in our career workshops. By filling out your areas of expertise in the Alumni Circle profile, we will contact you when we have a workshop where you could share your knowledge.
Lead a career design peer group
Perhaps you would like to design your career and collaborate with other alumni in experimenting with new ideas to craft your path? As a Career Design Agent, you can take the lead in starting a peer design group in the Alumni circle Circle and coordinating your meetings. A peer design group can focus on a career change, inclusion, wellbeing or any other theme that resonates with your group at this point of your career. You can either look for peers with similar career interests in the Alumni Circle or take one of our career redesign workshops and find your peers there.
