Share Your Experiences

Students love to hear from alumni who have used their in-class learning in their jobs. All you have to do to participate is answer these questions and attach a photo. This is a very low time commitment option that could have a huge impact on students! We work with instructors to integrate featured alumni as an example of career path options within courses (in-person or as a written document). 

Do you have experience with LinkedIn, developing a resume, interviewing, etc. that you would be interested in sharing with students? We often plan group or individual events where alumni/employers share their tips on how to best prepare to apply for openings.

Share information and network with students as they learn about various industries. We choose different industry areas to feature each semester.  

In partnership with the UMD Alumni Association, we invite you to join the UMD Terrapins Connect, an online advising program, which offers a secure space for alumni-to-student advising and mentoring.  No overwhelming time commitments. Create an account today

Alumni may join to mentor students or to expand their network by connecting with other alumni!
