Alumni Helping Alumni
A New Way to Look at Your Career Options
Alumni Helping Alumni is a program through which alumni volunteers and members from the Alumni Association Executive Board of Directors will share ideas with fellow alumni who are exploring their career options.
This program may be helpful if you are:
- Questioning whether your current career is as rewarding as it could be or is in line with your true passions or,
- Interested in exploring new career options by leveraging your experience and Cornell Law education.
The Alumni Helping Alumni program is designed to help you step back and assess where you are and explore ways to enhance your career. In the Program, you will have one on one discussions with an experienced Cornell Law School alumnus who can help point you in a new direction and uncover options you haven't considered.
You'll get objective feedback from a knowledgeable Law School alumnus who can serve as both a sounding board and advisor to help you review different aspects of your work history, education, values, life experiences and future plans. The Program will help you gain a better understanding of your strengths and passions and how they can be incorporated into a new career strategy.
The Alumni Helping Alumni program will expand your vision of your career. Although some job assistance may result, the Program is not designed for generating jobs or networking leads.
If you would like to talk with someone or learn more, email Peter Marx AB '65, MBA '68, JD '68. He will match you with a selected Cornell Law School alumnus and your exploration will begin. (NOTE: Only Peter Marx and the alumnus with whom you'll be speaking will be given access to information about you or your inquiry.)
