It’s the easiest way to build your Husky network. Create your profile and the platform does the work for you. Based on your interests, suggested connections are made for you, and simple built-in tools help start building your network.

“I appreciate Husky Landing for its focus on networking and mentorship,” Henry Vickers, a junior studying economics, said. “It has helped me connect with professionals that share the same interests, fields of study and career goals as I do.”

Connect to alumni who are interested in helping you. Because each user controls their level of participation, you will find alumni who are ready and willing to answer your questions. Filters make it easy to search by major, location, industry and interests. Set search alerts and be notified when new users match your criteria.

Build your professional skills. UW Husky Landing is a space dedicated to professional development. Need help writing your resume? Exploring different majors or wondering how to prepare for graduate school? Here are resources, tools and discussion forums to assist you.

Find the right mentor. Whether you engage in 15-minute chats or seek a longer-term relationship, mentors are a valuable resource for critical insights and skills to help you advance your career goals. The UW Husky Landing platform makes it easy to connect with the right potential matches to suit your needs.

The platform helps you along the way. Tools offer tips and tricks that help you get the best results with your connections. From messaging prompts to best practices (ex. how to prepare for different types of  interviews) you can be coached along the way.

Your network continues beyond graduation. Because the platform is for students and alumni, your Husky network will continue to grow and evolve beyond graduation and throughout your career.
