Workplace Insider Program

Cal Poly Alumni, thank you for your interest in volunteering to assist Cal Poly Career Services! Please provide the following information, then indicate your areas of interest below.

Panel Presenter

  • Share your experiences and perspective on wide ranging topics that students want to hear about most. From career advice to industry know-how, alumni panelists provide a unique perspective that resonates with Cal Poly students. Panel presentations are a great way to bring your message directly to students, and a perfect excuse to return to campus for a visit!

Professional Insight

  • Provide one-on-one advice for students looking for guidance. Activities include informational interviews, resume review, mock-interviews, and industry or academic mentoring. By volunteering, you provide the opportunity for a student to contact you for this purpose. Interviews and mentoring may take place in person, by phone, or via email.

Industry Outlook

  • Give us the scoop! Share feedback on industry trends and ensure that students stay up-to-date with vital information about the workplace. We rely on you to keep us current on industry practices to help students succeed. Activities range from responding to a quick question about your field to completing a brief online questionnaire.
