Share your knowledge

Share your experiences, insight, and advice with current students and fellow alumni through virtual and in person modes. Alumni from all majors, levels, backgrounds, identities, and geographic locations are needed to help with career exploration. There are many ways to give back to MIT and your time is just one way that directly impacts the next MIT class. #Techpride

Get involved with CAPD

CAPD launched the Absolute Value Campaign with the Equal Pay Working Group in 2021. Our goal is to provide more opportunities for students and alumni to connect and discuss gaps in pay, opportunity, and advancement.

Remember your first year at MIT. That first time you had an interview or went to a networking reception. Our first years need your assistance.

  • Mock Interviews for First Years: Help provide practice interviews for first-year undergraduates as they prepare for their first summer internship or research opportunity.
  • Networking with First Years: Connect with first-year undergraduates to help them learn more about your job, industry, or career path as they develop their elevator pitches and begin to expand their network.

Are you an alumni currently in a medical or health related school or profession looking to share your knowledge and experience? We are looking for speakers, mentors, and those who can offer shadowing, micro internship, or employment opportunities for current students.

Create a learning opportunity and bring talent into your workplace – Hire a MIT micro-intern! MIT undergraduates or graduate students help with short-term projects. Build brand awareness and connect with potential hires.

Graduate students (master’s students and PhDs) find connections with alumni mentors to be of great value, particularly when it comes to developing professional skills and exploring career pathways. If you are interested in sharing your expertise and story with graduate students, we’d love to hear from you!

A collaboration between CAPD and the MIT Alumni Association that helps students explore diverse career paths and the non-linearity of career decision making, the Infinite Careers Alumni Speaker Series is the perfect for any alumni interested in sharing their career journey in a small group setting with current students!
