Philosophy and Services for Alumni

Guided Discovery is the home of integrated career and academic advising for all current Guilford College students. We are a team of 12 Guilford Guides including 8 Guides focused on academic advisement (Advising Guides) and 4 Guides focused on holistic career development (Career Guides).

Our team of Career Guides specialize in the holistic career development experience for current students and recent alumni, ranging from finding your career fit to negotiating a job offer. Alumni have full access to all services for five years post-graduation.  

For Guilford alumni beyond that point, our team is here for online/email consultation, quick resume and cover letter review, and connections to other alumni professionals.   Alumni needing a higher level of career support, such as testing, assessment, coaching, or multi-session advising, should seek a local career adviser through the directory of advisers recommended by the National Career Development Association.

To request a consultation as an Alumni, please complete the intake form or contact Guided Discovery ( for more information on how to connect with a Career Guide.

In addition, Alumni are encouraged to connect with the greater Guilford Alumni network though the Alumni Directory and through LinkedIn.  You never know who you might meet as a fellow Quaker!
