Hoya Gateway is a new and innovative program that facilitates career-related conversations between current Georgetown students and alumni. It creates an opportunity for generations of Hoyas to connect for in-person, one-on-one meetings in the form of an informational interview, resume review, or mock interview.
The Hoya Gateway program was made possible in part by a grant from your Georgetown University Alumni Association, a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1881 that provides more than 165,000 alumni with programs, services and events that generate goodwill and support for the university and to foster a lifelong connection among alumni, our alma mater and the global Georgetown community. To find out more about the alumni association’s activities, visit alumni.georgetown.edu
The funding for this project came in the form of an Alumni Serving Alumni Program Grant (ASAP Grant), a grant program developed to serve as a launch pad for new and often unprecedented programs that engage, serve and excite alumni on a grand scale.
Hoya Gateway exists to introduce students to the Georgetown Alumni network beyond Healy Gates, assisting students in establishing and building their own professional networks. Hoya Gateway strives to institutionalize connections between students and alumni, thereby making a material impact on students’ ability to fulfill their career objectives.
Hoya Gateway connects Georgetown alumni and students for one-on-one meetings (either a mock interview, informational interview, or resume review), to prepare students to explore and reach their career goals and aspirations. Hoya Gateway provides a significant opportunity for alumni to share with students their industry expertise, knowledge, and career advice.
