Need Advice? Ask Alumni!


Contributed by Gretchen Van Valen

The IC Mentoring Network on LinkedIn now has over 750 alumni members who have made themselves available to offer advice to students, and the number is growing. It's a virtual community with a lot of activity from students posting questions, to alumni offering advice and tips, to helpful articles on just about any career-related topic.


And there are six subgroups that are perfect for conversations around the following specific topics areas: education, finance, integrated marketing communications, law, PT/OT, and theatre . . . with more topic-based groups to come in the near future.


It's easy to join. Just go to LinkedIn and type "IC Mentoring Network" in the search field, or visit
