StudentsCareer Resources For Stanford Students

Thinking about your next professional step? Get closer to your goals by making connections you can carry with you even when you’re off the Farm.


Stanford Pass

To get started, create your Stanford Pass account. You’ll use Stanford Pass to access the Alumni Directory, register for alumni events, join alumni groups, and more. 

Stanford Alumni Groups

Get set up to have access to alumni-hosted events and over 500 Stanford alumni communities. Complete these steps to access Stanford Alumni Groups as a student:

Go to the opt-in page in Axess. Read the information and slide the bar to "Y" to indicate that you would like to opt in to Stanford Alumni Groups. You will receive a confirmation email with login instructions. It will take 24 hours to process your opt-in request.

Note: You’ll need a Stanford Pass account to access Stanford Alumni Groups. To avoid delays, include your SUID number when creating your Stanford Pass. Need help? Contact us.

Alumni Directory

Your alumni network is just a click away. Explore the Alumni Directory to find professional contacts, friends, classmates, and more.

Your Directory Profile

Keep your Directory profile up to date. You can select the info you want to make public, and you’ll receive more relevant alumni connections and updates from the Stanford Alumni Association by keeping your Directory profile current.

Stanford Alumni LinkedIn Group

Share jobs and event opportunities on our LinkedIn group exclusively for Stanford students and alumni. Students can automatically join with their email address. Watch the video on how to find alumni using LinkedIn.
