As an MSF graduate, we hope you will remain connected to the program and participate actively by sharing your successes, expertise, and industry insights. Alumni are encouraged to attend events held around the world, and we always can use your help in making introductions to hiring managers and others who seek to hire MSF talent. We hope you will actively contribute to the MSF community in person and through social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) for years to come.
Career Advising and Executive Coaching
MSF alumni have access to lifelong career advising and executive coaching. A member of our Career Management Team can assist you in a wide range of areas, including positioning for a promotion, strategizing about a career change, or evaluating a job offer. To discuss your specific situation, contact the MSF career services office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Access to MSF Resources
As a member of the Georgetown MSF alumni community, you will receive program updates about twice a year. In addition, you retain access to course materials on Engage as well as to the program’s MSF intranet site, where you can find information on the newest cohorts, contact information for the program, and links to MSF news. You also have unlimited access to the MSF Career Management intranet, which includes important MSF-specific career resources, links to business intelligence, industry information, and resources like Vault, The Business Journals, and Mock Interview Software.
Top 6 Ways to Engage as an MSF Alum
Remain connected to the MSF community through multiple opportunities to network, provide support for fellow alumni or current students, and share valuable insights into the world of finance and consulting. Consider engaging in one of the following:
- Host a “Dinner with Alumni” – Host up to four current MSF students at a restaurant of your choosing for a career conversation and informal networking. This is a great way to expand your network and offer current students the opportunity to learn from your successes.
- Post a Job – If your organization has an open position, post it on the MSF LinkedIn Page or send it to our office. You also can post it to Georgetown’s Handshake platform to gain wider exposure beyond the MSF program.
- Share Company Insights and Referrals – Open a door for a current MSF student by providing insights into your company, hiring practices, career pathways, and – if you feel comfortable – a potential internal referral to your company’s HR department.
- Offer Mock Interviews – You are well-positioned to help current students prepare for the realities of job interviews. If you are interested in offering interview coaching and advice, let us know and we will add you to the active database of alumni volunteers who have agreed to offer this valuable service.
- Host Company Site Visits or Individual Job Shadow Days – Help students and fellow alumni get to know your company.
Company Visits: Host a small group site visit. Work with Career Services to arrange for an on-site orientation, luncheon, or panel discussion with a group of MSF students where you and your colleagues can share the unique components of what makes your company great.
Job Shadow Days: For many students, the opportunity to observe a professional in a variety of environments can be invaluable to gaining perspective on a career in finance. Host an MSF student for a half- or full-day job shadow and allow them to gain an understanding of what you do and how you have leveraged the MSF degree to find career success.
- Alumni Networks – Stay connected with alumni from the MSF Program by remaining active on the program’s LinkedIn Page. You can register on Hoya Gateway to gain access to — and become a resource for — members of the gloal Georgetown network.
Access to Georgetown Alumni Resources
When you graduate, you will regularly hear from the McDonough Office of Alumni Relations and become part of the larger Georgetown Alumni Association. Gain access to a wide range of resources, perks, and information on the alumni page and don’t forget to register for alumni events and programs offered to the entire Georgetown alumni community.
