Thank you to our Career Network Outreach volunteers
For the past four years we've recruited more than 50 alumni annually to call the College of Liberal Arts graduates right after they graduate. We don't know of other schools that have been able to do anything like this. Volunteers are matched to 10 new grads based on geography and major, and these generous volunteers check in with the most recent graduates to make sure they are aware of the support offered to them through the Career Network (and alumni association, too).
Given the state of the job market, we feel it is important for the new graduates to know we're invested in their post-graduation career success. Career decisions are tough and alumni can provide such inspiration as our newest alumni transition from college to career.
After another successful round of contacts, we send a resounding "thank you!" to our alumni volunteers. Just another sign that WU people are givers.
