Alumni Guest Speaker Events

We are committed to providing you with new and exciting ways of connecting with alumni professionals in your field of interest.

Connect virtually with accomplished alumni to hear their career stories and learn about their roles, organizations, and industries. These sessions will be moderated by the Career Education & Development and will include a Q & A period where students and new graduates can ask questions.

Alumni Career Chats are designed to assist York students and new graduates in making connections, building their professional network, and gaining industry insights.

  • Their personal career paths;
  • How their university education is relevant to their particular position;
  • The realities of sectors they work in;
