There are several different criteria for which you can search for alumni on the UA Career Network. Mentors can be filtered based on criteria such as, “Career Field,” “Cultural Affiliation” and “Degree Level.” The network is especially useful for students in career fields that don’t typically offer mentoring or apprenticeship opportunities.
Once you’ve searched through the Career Network, and you’ve found an alumnus that you would like to speak with, you have the option of contacting them by email.
Before the conversation, research your chosen occupation and prepare good questions. Refer to page 5 of the interviewing and job search guide to help you prepare.
