Alumni meeting with current students at ExperienceU

Give Back - Share your Story

Alumni are students’ most valuable resource when it comes to envisioning life after UW-Eau Claire. Whether it’s through the Connect Blugolds network or speaking at a career event on campus, when students connect with alumni, something magical happens.

The Connect Blugolds network is a group of UW-Eau Claire graduates who have volunteered to share their Blugold Success Story with students and alumni about career paths, postgraduate studies, and transitioning to life after UW-Eau Claire.

The most common way that students interact with Connect Blugold volunteers is by viewing their Blugold Success Story to get ideas about the kinds of careers that alumni pursue.

When you join, in addition to providing your Blugold Success Story, you can choose to:
  • connect one-on-one with current Blugolds seeking career advice from professionals in specific fields, graduate school choices, or are just curious about transitioning to life after UW-Eau Claire.

  • be available for Career Services staff members to share your expertise in career-related activities including Mock Interviews, Resume Reviews, Q & A panels with current students and other networking opportunities.

Joining the CONNECT Blugolds network is the single most important way alumni can get connected with students who need their support. CONNECT members share information about their career and graduate school experience through their searchable Blugold Success Profile online.
