Adler School alumni and new graduates are strongly encouraged to utilize LinkedIn as a digital and living résumé. Join the Adler School Community group to see multiple job postings weekly, and also to connect with other practitioners in the field.
Career Transitions Center of Chicago (CTC), an Adler School community partner, provides career coaching, free seminars and job search tools for professionals in a multitude of professional fields. Adler School alumni can secure CTC’s services in their Chicago office, at School or virtually. Recent workshops have included “Powerful Communication and Interviewing with Confidence.” In the Fall of 2012, CTC launched its new virtual career services, called Optimal Resume, which allow job-seekers to craft a personal website, with resume and cover letters, video, photos and writing samples. In addition, live career coaches will be available to work (via videoconference and Face Time) with Adler School alumni from any location, via PC, smart phone or tablet. Our Vancouver alumni will be among CTC’s first international test audience for this exciting new technology.

Our MA Alumni can take advantage of lunchtime seminars on exam prep for LPC/LCPC, starting in 2013. These “Lunch & Learn” sessions will be led by Adler School faculty and alumni with expertise in exam preparation and open to all students and alumni.
Many practitioners are required to earn continuing education units each year. The Adler School offers a number of workshop opportunities for its alumni.
