Next Steps for our Graduates

Dear Class of 2020 Bellarmine Knight, 

In recent months you have demonstrated extraordinary resilience, grit, and determination. As a result, you have achieved so much and persisted to GRADUATE! We are SO PROUD of you. We at Bellarmine want to stay connected with you and continue to celebrate your success as you begin your post-graduation journey. Please complete the First Destination Survey and update your permanent contact information, and let us know how you are moving forward after graduation.

If you have any questions about your next steps, job searching and interviewing in the times of COVID-19, or help networking to professional opportunities (now, or any time in the future), connect with the Bellarmine Career Development Center for assistance. We wish you all the best as you navigate your career path. Please stay connected, take the survey, and Go Knights! 

 

Bellarmine Briefcase

To support you in reaching your personal and professional goals, the Career Center has developed a digital career toolbox for you through Moodle, "The Bellarmine Briefcase", which was specifically designed to assist the Class of 2020 with job search and grad school prep in the wake of COVID-19. You will have access to this free resource for the next 12 months so log into Moodle and get started! 

 

Virtual Summer Alumni Mentoring Program 

The Career Center and Alumni Office are teaming up to offer a virtual Alumni Mentoring Program just for the class of 2020 this summer! Networking is a key strategy during any job search, but it is even more important during a recession or uncertain economy. Bellarmine's Alumni Network is an incredible resource for you and I hope you'll take advantage of this unique summer opportunity.  

Sign up by May 15 so you can be matched with an alum in your career field of interest and get started with the virtual mentoring & networking throughout June and July! Apply Now
