Student club spotlight: Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA)

The Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) was the first national organization focused on the development of Latino professionals and continues to provide men and women with opportunities for internships and jobs at the largest companies around the world. Their mission is “to empower and develop Latino men and women as leaders of character for the nation, in every sector of the global economy…” and this could not be more true. Our University of Utah chapter of ALPFA alumni have gone on to work at Goldman Sachs, Fidelity, Protiviti, and more!

We host regular events, including panels with industry professionals, recruiting seminars, and workshops on how to build LinkedIn pages and stand-out resumes. There are also social events to network with your fellow ALPFAmilia as well as industry professionals and recruiters. These experiences are valuable to those who are first-generation college students, as well as students who are simply looking to take their skills to the next level. We welcome everyone from freshmen to seniors of all majors and disciplines. We are eager to support you and each other, and hope to see some new and old faces this year!
