Department of Physics Alumni Connections

LinkedIn Alumni Group

Alumni of the Physics Department have a LinkedIn group, “Washington University in Saint Louis, Physics Department Alumni”. All current and former physics majors, minors, graduate students, and faculty can create a free account and take advantage of the group resources. Members are encouraged to invite connections to join and increase the representation of mid-career members. The group is an information source on career path types (industry, government, and academic) for physics students and a networking tool for established alumni. While physicists can use their skills in many job areas, the group provides a contextual dataset of specific careers achieved by those with a WashU education and credentials. Helpful information for students and soon-to-be graduates includes field-specific job titles, an inventory of skills necessary for success in various job types, as well as networking and contact information.

Julia Cohen

"College was my chance to eagerly explore my interest in science. The physics department reinforced my passion for physics, allowing for a broad survey of its many subfields, most of which were previously completely foreign to me."

―Julia CohenB.A., 2019
