Alumni Horizons- Career Networking and Mentors

Horizons Power Breakfast 2020

Thank you to our Alumni for participating in the virtual panel discussion for Class of 2020
Dwight-Englewood School graduates succeed in a wide range of endeavors, from science and business, to writing and the arts. Many alumni maintain bonds with D-E, coming back to campus to share their experiences with students and other alumni. In an effort to expand the access our current students and young graduates have to the broad community of D-E alumni, we have created new and exciting events and programs that we hope will help lead them on their individual career path.

 Mentor Program

Recognizing the importance of a strong network in today’s professional world, the Development Office along with the Alumni Relations Committee Career Networking Subcommittee oversees a mentoring program that creates opportunities for young alumni to gain valuable career direction. The Career Mentor Program offers informational sessions with an alumnus/a. These sessions can provide consultation, networking, career trajectory information and encouragement to college-age alumni mentee, who has identified specific areas of career interest and has been matched to the Mentor’s expertise. If interested, please fill out ouror our  online or fill out the pdf below and e-mail the application to D-EHorizons@jssurfboards.com.

 Power Breakfast

The Power Breakfast is an annual event that showcases the diverse careers of our outstanding alumni. Graduates of all ages return to campus during Senior Selectives to speak to current seniors providing a more in-depth look at their career paths, successes and insights. Each student participates in round table conversations with alumni of their choice in four 20 minute “power” intervals (introduction, conversation, question & answer).

 Senior Class Panel

The Dwight-Englewood School hosts an annual event in which a panel of college age alumni in various fields shares academic and professional advice with current seniors. Conversations include how to find on and off campus jobs, join clubs, research and get internships, make course selections and more. These topics all lead to building a resume and determining a career path, searching for a job, interviewing and networking. Current seniors are able to talk informally with the young alumni panelists in their areas of interest after the panel.


D-E encourages alumni to join the Alumni Group on (), to strengthen and extend their network of trusted contacts. Alumni can connect with over 600 other alumni who can help them advance their career. Alumni can also post opportunities for internships and jobs on the site as well.
