Reed Career Alliance (RCA)
The Reed Career Alliance is an alumni association sponsored initiative to support Reed College students and alumni in the development of meaningful careers post-Reed.
This network of Reed volunteers from all generations share time and expertise with each other. We encourage you to view the resources below for either advancing your own career, or for helping others in their journey. To get involved, please see the contact details below.
Using social media platforms, Reed community members gather in affinity groups to share information, post career opportunities, and promote Reedie success.
Alumni professional networks are groups of Reedies (including students, alumni, faculty, and staff) who share a common industry, discipline, or career field, or who provide support to the community in some way. The largest Reed professional network is the Reed College Alumni Professional Network on LinkedIn.
These groups are independent, and provide different types of content and resources depending on the interests of the group. If you have an interest in one of these fields, feel free to join and learn more.
You can also find information on prospective networking opportunities through IRIS Alumni Search
Alumni Career Coaches
Our pool of volunteer alumni offer flexible coaching to any alumni who would like help. They can help with questions about Reed resources, provide a welcoming introduction to existing professional networks our great Reed community offers, review resumes, or brainstorm career questions.
