Career Connections Advisor Program

Career Connections

Villanova Career Connections is a resource to help Villanova students and alumni gain insight into particular careers and industries through online networking with other Villanovans.

What is a Career Advisor?
Career Advisors take an active role in the future success of fellow Villanovans by sharing their professional knowledge and experience with current students and graduates.

What is expected of Career Advisors?
Career Advisors provide information and advice based on their professional experience and knowledge of industries. They are not in the program to make job offers. Instead, they volunteer to assist the career exploration process by offering guidance, ideas, and additional contacts for both students and fellow alumni.

How We've Helped

"I have really enjoyed the online community website. In fact, I have spent the better part of the past week reconnecting with folks I have not talked to in 15 years! I have them going online and updating their info. It has been fun and the site has been a great catalyst!" - Ted LeClair '91

"After joining the LinkedIn subgroup for Alumni and Student Mentoring, I posted a discussion asking for help making connections for my career, not exactly sure what to expect. Within one week, I have been contacted by more than 10 alumni with offers of advice, job leads, and connections to their companies and contacts. I now have people helping me, commenting to my discussion on LinkedIn, and connecting with me daily." - Kara S. '13
