Help students get connected at the Academic Career Expo

First- and Second-Year Experience will be hosting Huskies Get Connected appointments during the Academic Career Expo on Wednesday, March 22.

Huskies Get Connected (HGC) is an opportunity for students to attend a one-on-one consultation with a knowledgeable peer to help them discover ways to get connected that are personally meaningful. HGC peer consultants can help students find their place on campus whether it be through involvement in student organization or clubs, campus employment, attending campus events, mentorship opportunities, service/research opportunities or helping them understand how to navigate campus resources.

HGC consultants provide students with a plan that fits their goals, a folder of materials specifically tailored to them and offer advice to students on discovering career interests through involvement.

Faculty and staff are invited to encourage students to sign up for a 30-minute HGC appointment at the Academic Career Expo which will give students the chance to browse the fair and also meet with an HGC consultant.

Students can sign-up for an HGC spot at the career expo, or, if they are unable to attend the fair, can also sign up for an individual HGC appointment.
