Join Smith Career Connect

Smith Career Connect is where students and alums come together to talk about careers. You can grow your network, receive tailored mentorship and browse job listings by alums who can help you secure the role—all in one place.

This platform is exclusive to the Smith community. It’s a built-in network of Smith alums who are eager to help you navigate the next stage in your career, whether you’re still exploring what path is right for you or need help making connections in the industry of your choice.

Smith Career Connect

Why should I join?

A trusted network. Everyone in Smith Career Connect is part of our community and has demonstrated a keen interest in the professional growth of our students. 

Simplified interactions. Students and alums can make connections, share files, book and attend audio and video calls without leaving the platform—no need to exchange personal information or use third-party apps to participate.

Meaningful connections. More than 1,200 alums have already signed up and are eager to help students and recent graduates explore and succeed in their career journey. Students will spend less time cold calling and more time receiving personalized mentorship.

Creating an Account

All Smith students have been preloaded into the platform for a seamless signup experience.

  1. Go to Smith Career Connect.
  2. Select Smith Account Login to continue using the SSO system. 
  3. Add your Smith credentials to gain access.

After creating your account, you’ll be asked to provide details about your working experience, career interests and goals. This process is relatively brief and we recommend you answer all the questions simultaneously. These answers will inform the connection, career and employment opportunities Smith Career Connects recommends to you.

Getting Started

On Smith Career Connect you can:

  • Explore career paths based on your interests. Based on your profile, the platform will suggest career paths, show potential salary ranges, and share academic and experience requirements.
  • Connect with alums via private messaging, schedule meetings and share files all with the assistance of templates to facilitate and enhance your networking experience.
  • Browse open jobs from a curated list of employers (vetted by Lazarus Center staff) and Smith Career Connect will recommend alums who are willing to help you secure these roles.

The Network remains the central virtual hub for alum connections but Smith Career Connect serves as a space for Smithies of all generations to come together for conversation and mentorship related to careers.
