BEAM, Stanford Career Education, is the principal career guidance and resource organization on campus. BEAM helps graduate and undergraduate students in their lifelong career development.
Career educators at BEAM connect with students in appointments and meetups to help them explore career paths, identify and apply for opportunities, and cultivate personalized networks that shape their professional journey. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the 17+ customized career fairs, join industry treks in the Bay Area and around the U.S., and network with one of the 3,000 alumni in the Stanford Alumni Mentoring (SAM) program. This year, BEAM launched Handshake, an online platform that connects students with a diverse range of employers, events, and opportunities. BEAM's programs and resources are designed to empower students to transform their education and ambitions into meaningful work.
