#AggiesAtWork

Multi-talented and driven to succeed, UC Davis alumni are everywhere: climbing corporate ladders in the tech industry, using decades of farming experience to grow things people said couldn’t be grown in California, making connections in the professional sports world, starting up skyscrapers to create affordable housing, or earning a name for themselves by solving some of the greatest challenges of our time. They find success because their alma mater taught them to be committed, aim high, innovate and work hard.

These qualities and experiences are shared by all UC Davis alumni, making them highly desirable on the job market. For these reasons and many others, alumni are inspired to help other Aggies achieve their dreams. So they turn to their alma mater to volunteer, find students to mentor and recruit fellow Aggies for exciting positions.

This page features stories about successful alumni who have made a point to help other Aggies achieve their dreams. Share your exciting career stories or moments of professional connections with other Aggies by using #AggiesAtWork.
