CHC Career Connections

One of the greatest benefits of a Cape Henry education is the networking circle that you share with talented and forward-thinking alumni. It is our goal to connect our alumni, share resources, and strengthen ties within our community, locally, nationally, and globally.

Cape Henry’s Alumni Association offers the following opportunities that expand and strengthen our alumni networking circle: Alumni Career Day, regional dinners in Washington D.C., New York, Boston, and San Francisco, mentoring and speaking opportunities, and networking events both on and off campus.

Alumni Career Day is a cornerstone event in which alumni return to campus and discuss their professional insights with our juniors and seniors. Alumni Career Day is an outstanding opportunity for our alumni and our students to make meaningful connections. Often this day leads to mentoring opportunities, guidance with senior projects, and relationships that are sustained through the years.

Our Cape Henry Collegiate Alumni Association LinkedIn group provides a platform for our alumni to network with each other, share professional articles of interest, and list job opportunities. Networking is also social! Please like our CHC Alumni Association Facebook page and follow us at @AlumniCHC on Twitter.
