The Vassar Network

Career networking is a vital part of professional development. As a Vassar alumna/us or student, you are part of, and have access to, a network of more than 40,000 people who have shared the Vassar experience.

There are several ways to locate and connect with Vassar alumnae/i and others in the Vassar community.

First, join VassarNet, Vassar’s online community of alumnae/i, students, parents, faculty, and friends of Vassar, to build your network and find Vassar-connected opportunities. On this platform, you can:

  • Search for people by industry, location, major, and more.
  • Send messages to contacts of interest, and set up informational interviews.
  • Join groups to affiliate over shared interests and identities.
  • Search for (or post) job and internship opportunities for the Vassar community.
  • Ask career-related questions and get answers from the community.

Second, to locate additional alumnae/i of interest, check out the Alumnae/i Directory. This directory contains listings for all alumnae/i, including people who may be willing to share career advice.

Third, check out the profiles of almost 29,000 alumnae/i on Vassar’s LinkedIn “University” Page, where you can search for alumnae/i by employer, location, industry, and more.

Have a job or internship lead to share?

You can help to strengthen the Vassar network for current students and alumnae/i by posting your opportunity on VassarNet. Internships and entry-level positions can also be posted to Handshake, Vassar’s job/internship database for students. Get more information about recruiting Vassar students.
