For most undergraduates, one thing standing between success and uncertainty is a lack of information. Likewise, many Hamline alumni who are thinking about a job or career change face similar road blocks due to a lack of information. Piper Connect, formerly known as Career Advisors Network is a database comprised of Alumni and Employers who have volunteered to answer questions from Hamline students and Alumni. By joining Piper Connect, you will be providing an opportunity for Hamline students to connect with professionals about their careers and will help them obtain vital information needed for success in today's competitive market.
It's easy! Complete the Piper Connect Member Registration Form now or create an account in Hamline Career Link as an employer or alum. Each option allows you to join and utilize Piper Connect. However, registering as an Alum allows you to view job listings, but not the ability to post positions, while registering as an employer allows you to post positions, but not view other jobs.
Occasionally, a student or alum may contact you to ask a few questions or perhaps arrange for a brief informational interview. Typical content includes questions about your major(s) at Hamline and your current position, industries/organizations/positions with which you may be familiar, what strategies you employed to help you get to where you are in your career, or other general advice you can offer. Your role is to provide information based on your background and experience. You are not being asked to place students. We understand how valuable your time is - just a few minutes could make a huge difference to a student. Piper Connect is only available through Hamline Career Link, which is password protected and only available to Hamline students and Alumni. Students are instructed NOT to use Piper Connect to ask for a job or an internship, to have their resume mass distributed, spam a contact with multiple emails, or bother you with multiple phone calls.
In addition to meeting with students or alumni individually to discuss careers, you may opt for additional opportunities to interact with current students:
Piper Connect can be a great resource for you too! If you're interested in expanding your professional network, learning more about what Hamline students and alums are doing in the community, or considering a career change, log-in to Hamline Career Link to explore the database for yourself!
