Career development for alumni
Alumni have access to a wealth of online development resources, job postings and professional career coaching through the INSEAD Career Development Centre. Whether you are looking to develop a career roadmap, sustain a high flying career or become a non-executive director, there are tools, videos and tailored services to support you.

INSEAD now offers all alumni the option of two free career coaching sessions (via Skype or in person) with one of our global panel of career coaches.  These coaches – many themselves INSEAD alumni – adapt their approach to the different stages of the alumni’s career. They offer impartial advice on issues such as:

  • Defining career goals
  • Job hunting (refining your focus, presentation and CV)
  • Career change and transition
  • Work-life balance, career breaks and moving to a portfolio career

To book a session, email wpcareers@insead.edu.

INSEAD have created an online career development centre to aid alumni at different stages in their careers. This site offers a guided self-help programme covering challenges such as:

  • Career design and transition

  • First 90 days in a new job

  • Surviving and overcoming job loss

  • Career reinvention and renewal at 45+

Visit https://www.insead.edu/career-development-resources.

Alumni also have access to INSEAD’s CareerGlobe job board where you can search for job postings and set up alerts in areas of interest. Visit insead-csm.symplicity.com

To give alumni and students an insight into the different career paths available to INSEAD graduates INSEAD have developed a series of videos where faculty and alumni share their experiences of:

  • Working for organisations like Google, Goldman Sachs or the United Nations

  • Founding a hedge fund or a social enterprise

  • Advice on networking, working with headhunters, career change, and securing board roles

Alumni looking for new opportunities should – at a minimum – maintain an up-to-date profile on:

  • The INSEAD alumni directory – MyINSEAD

  • INSEAD’s 14,000 member LinkedIn group

  • The “Careers” group on INSEAD’s private social network – Yammer

INSEAD’s national alumni associations organise 900+ events each year worldwide and generations of INSEAD alumni have found that attending both national and global events is a fantastic way of connecting serendipitously.

  • Local events (organised by your national alumni associations)

  • Global events organised by the school 

  • Class Reunions – apart from the pleasure of seeing old friends – alumni in transition should make a particular effort to attend
