Additional Career Resources for Alumni

The Homewood Life Design Lab provides career counseling to alumni.

Career counseling appointments for alumni take place over the phone and are generally 30 minutes in length.

This service is specifically for alumni who graduated in the last five years out of full time programs in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering. To learn more about this service or to make an appointment, please visit the Life Design Lab website
