Your Oberlin connection doesn’t end at graduation. As young alumni who have attended within the last 10 years, you have many great opportunities to get involved and stay connected to the Obie community.
Following graduation, many alumni move frequently to attend graduate school or embark on new careers. Please keep us informed of your whereabouts by sending your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org . This will help us keep you informed about events and opportunities in your area.
Explore some resources available to you, as an alum:
Are You on Switchboard Yet?
What is Switchboard ? Imagine Craigslist without creepiness, specific to the Oberlin community but less localized than the Oberlin classifieds. Switchboard allows students, alumni, faculty, and staff to help each other through asks (“I need something”) and offers (“I have something”) wherever they are in the world. Registration takes only a few moments and you can preview how the system works before signing up. Ma’ayan Plaut ’10 has written a helpful tutorial to highlight many of the features of Switchboard.
- Oberlin College Career Center — Career counseling services and career resources are tailored to best meet the career needs of students and young alumni who are beginning their careers. As a young alum, we can assist you with many aspects of your job search or graduate/professional school application process.
- Winter Term Office — Interested in offering a Winter Term internship but unsure of where to start? Or are you able to help with housing for winter term or summer internships? The Winter Term office would like to hear from you.
- Fellowships and Awards Office — Every year, alumni win major awards with the support of our office, and Oberlin’s own Alumni Fellowships can help fund graduate-level research projects.
