You’ve heard the term “networking,” but do you know how and where to do it? Any career adviser will tell you that networking is vital in the job search process, but many students aren’t sure how to start.

STAT can help guide you by connecting you with alumni who are already leaders in your chosen field through our mentoring program and interaction at many Alumni Association events that you’re entitled to attend as a member.

Making these connections while you’re a student will ease the transition from Washburn to your dream job after graduation.
