Faced with numerous options and a competitive marketplace, many Hamline students are understandably unsure about career direction or effective strategies for entrance into a chosen field. For most undergraduates, one thing standing between success and uncertainty is a lack of information. Wouldn't it be great to ask specific questions about your major or chosen career field from someone who actually knows the answer? You can with Piper Connect!
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. They are providing an opportunity for you to connect with professionals about their careers which will help you obtain vital information needed for success in today's competitive market. We currently have over 500 members and this number will continue to grow through targeted outreach efforts by the CDC and Alumni Relations.
Piper Connect is only available through Hamline Career Link. If you do not have a Hamline Career Link account, you will need to register for an account to access the database. Once registered, you may begin contacting members in Piper Connect to ask questions or perhaps arrange for a brief informational interview.
You are able to search members by employer, location, major, and keyword and you are able to view their education and employment history as well as contact information. It is recommended that you do not have requests out to more than three individuals at a time.
Piper Connect should NOT be used to ask for a job or an internship, ask to have your resume mass distributed, spam a contact with multiple emails, or bother them with multiple phone calls. You SHOULD always follow-up with a brief thank you letter or email after networking with a member.
