Topics: This webinar will discuss how to give the next generation of up-and-comers the advice you wish you’d had. The Wildcat Connect Alumni Advisor Network is an online mentoring platform that connects students and young alumni with alumni who are willing to offer insights and advice. The platform facilitates connections between students and young alumni and alumni who give and get advice in many ways: career conversations, resume and cover letter reviews, and mock interviews.
