Huskies@Work

Reaching out has never been easier

More than ever, students need connections to help them explore what their career paths could look like after graduation. That’s where alumni come in. Huskies@Work matches up alumni and students for one-time, low-commitment online talks about careers. It’s an easy and rewarding way for Huskies to connect!

Huskies@Work is now part of a FIG! First-year Interest Groups (FIGs) help new Huskies build communities and explore new pathways. This year, Huskies@Work is connecting with the UW Office of First-Year Programs to connect first-year students with alumni through the FIG program. This is the alumni community’s chance to help students put their best paw forward in college!

Getting started is easy:

  1. Sign up: Tell us a little about yourself and what you’re interested in.
  2. Get matched: Based on your interests, we’ll set you up — students with a UW alum, alumni with a current UW student(s).
  3. Set a date: Make a plan to meet (online or by phone) at a time that fits both your schedules.
  4. Get together: Meet, chat and connect!

Applications for students are open through Oct. 12. 

Applications for alumni are open through Oct. 18.

(First-year students, sign up here now or look out for more information from your FIG Leader)

COMING SOON: Resources and tips for creating a successful virtual connection.
