Learn how to provide assistance to students about career development opportunities and focus on your career development.

Resources for Alumni

As an alumnus, you continue to have access to Career Connection, NOVA’s online career resource and job database. Upload a resume and apply directly to positions posted in the database. 

You can also use Career Connection to create resumes, cover letters, access career advice, practice mock interviews using video recordings, and search for and apply to jobs. Learn more about yourself as part of the career development process.

Alumni who earned a credential after July 1, 2019 automatically have their student account converted into an Alumni account.  To access Career Connection use the Student/Alumni Sign In section with your MyNOVA credentials on the log in page. If you forgot your MyNOVA credential, use the Forgot Password for Alumni link on that same page.

For graduates prior to July 1, 2019, you can request a Career Connection account by using the Alumni Sign Up button on the right side of the log in page.  Your graduate status will be confirmed and an email sent to allow you to create an account.

Take time to focus on your career development by reviewing the career development process. View community resources to learn about additional resources that may be available to support you.
Remember what it was like when you were starting your first job and considering a new career – now you can help another NOVA student to launch their success story.

  • Market your industry or employer at NOVA student events such as networking programs, panel discussions, employer table spotlights, or other targeted programs.
