Alumni Success

First-generation college graduates are successful professionals working in diverse careers, as well as pursuing further study and graduate degrees.


Alumni in the workforce are breaking new ground for their families as role models for siblings and first-generation professionals in their communities.

Through career training workshops and internships, PCF’s Career Services Department has helped to pave the way for alumni to secure meaningful work in their field of interest. Alumni work at tech companies, law offices, nonprofits and corporations, including Genentech, KPMG, Morgan Stanley, Beyond 12, Cisco, Deloitte, Pinterest, Google, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, UN Refugee Agency, CASA of San Mateo, Ronald McDonald House, Menlo-Atherton High School, City of Palo Alto and many others.

In their own words. . .

Alumni are the best qualified and most eloquent speakers to share how PCF has helped them to achieve academic and professional success.
