Your Career Connection for Life
Career and Professional Development

» Alumni

At Chapman, career is a priority, so we make it simple. Unlike many universities that separate alumni and student services, no matter what year you graduated - you have one core team serving you.

All resources listed on the Office of Career and Professional Development site are available to all alumni, regardless of graduation year or current employment status. Your Career and Professional Development team is here to assist you through your entire professional journey - as your career connection for life.

Making an Appointment

Currently, we ask that alumni make an appointment to meet with a career educator by emailing us at or calling (714) 997-6942. We are happy to accommodate your appointment needs and offer both email, phone and in-person support.


One of the most important things you can do to build a sustainable career support base is network. Networking doesn't just happen when you are employed - everyone should be networking in their personal, professional, educational and other circles during their entire career. For more information on networking, see the Networking Career Page

The most popular networking events for alumni are Alumni Networking Roundtables, held every other month in Orange County, and the Alumni Entertainment Industry Mixer, held in Los Angeles every April. Regional networking is available via Chappy Hours and online.

Job Board

Your alumni job board can be found on the 'jobs' tab of your Official Alumni Association LinkedIn Group. For a weekly update of new jobs and professional events, check out the Weekly Wrap-Up, posted every Friday.

Access and Technical Support

Some of these resources and links are made available via inter-campus partners, such as IS&T and the Leatherby Libraries. In some cases, a request may need to be made for an alumni account. Should you have difficulty gaining access to university portals, please reach out to the university service desk, and if you would like, follow-up with our front desk operations team
