Would you like to make a positive difference in someone’s life? Mentor a fellow Cougar in your career field! Join University Career Advisory Network (UCAN) on LinkedIn as a Career Advisor and assist UH students and fellow alumni in their career exploration!
Students/alumni need current, reliable information to make good career decisions, and the most inspiring advice often comes from the personal experiences of others. Your willingness to share your knowledge and experience may prove to be extremely valuable to UH students and alumni as they seek to make informed career decisions and/or launch effective job search campaigns. Career Advisors are not expected to offer internships or jobs, just information and advice, and Advisors may join or leave the group (opt-in or opt-out) at any time.
Due to the popularity, ease, and convenience of social media, UCAN has moved from existing only on the UCS website to being a members-only group on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional online network with more than 120 million users in over 200 countries and territories, and UCS recommends that all UH students and alumni create profiles on www.linkedin.com.
This online networking platform provides several beneficial features:
- Relevant article postings
- Career-related discussions amongst group members
- Job and internship postings
- Event promotions
- Company information
- Professional development opportunities
