Alumni Success

Supporting alumni as they transition from college to career

We want our students to be set up for lifelong success. That’s why our support doesn’t end with a college diploma.

Career Success Program

Our Career Success program provides the foundation our college students and alumni need to become strong job applicants, grow their professional networks, and secure meaningful full-time employment by graduation.

Through strength-based advising, workshops, and resources, alumni can explore careers, network, learn job-seeking skills, gain work experience, and find jobs and internships generously provided by our corporate and community partners.

Graham Brandt

Graham is a proud 10,000 Degrees alum. After graduating from UCLA in 1999, he started his career in private wealth management at Goldman Sachs—excelling in his career there to this day, while being one of 10,000 Degrees’ top ambassadors.

Motivated by the transformative impact of education in his life and a strong desire to pay it forward, Graham joined the 10,000 Degrees Board in 2005. He served for 10 years and became the second alum to chair the board. He was also a math tutor for the San Quentin Academic Peer Education Project, helping incarcerated men work toward their high school GED. He serves on the Scott Valley Swim & Tennis Club board. Graham and his wife, Talia, live in Mill Valley, and they have three children: Shay, Pierce, and Beckett.
