Welcome to Career Connect, an exclusive career management system for ALUMNI of Columbia School of Social Work. This system is your primary tool to access job opportunities and resources, schedule appointments, and register for career events.

  • If you were a STUDENT DURING THE 2017-2018 academic year, please note that you already have an account. You may request your account information by emailing
  • If you are a FIRST-TIME USER who graduated prior to the 2017-2018 academic year, please email with your full name (including your last name at the time of graduation, if different), UNI, preferred email, and graduation year. We will create an account for you. Please allow up to 10 business days for processing.
  • If you are a CURRENT STUDENT, please log in on the student site. If you have never logged in before or forgot your password, enter your Columbia email next to "Find My Account" to reset your password and access the portal. Note that your username will be your UNI.
For tutorials and guides on how to navigate the system, please review the GradLeaders Student Support page.
