First of all, welcome to Wisr! There are a world of possibilities available through your institution's alumni network, and Wisr is here to help you find alumni to talk to and schedule helpful 15-30 minutes calls on any topic you want.
To get started, think about what you could use help with. Here are some ideas:
- Learning about a new industry
- Understanding which skills are necessary for a certain career
- Finding out what a successful alum did during their time at your school
- Understanding the career path of an alum with a similar major
Use the search bar to find alumni based on location, industry, company, or job title.
If you want to browse solely by industry, click explore, and pick an industry of interest.
We'll do our best to make recommendations, learn from your feedback, and tailor our recommendations to you.
When you find an advisor that looks interesting, click 'Request a call.' You'll then be able to browse the different agendas we've provided for your convenience.
If you don't see an agenda that asks the questions you're thinking about, you can can create your own by editing the pre-populated topics in the text block (check out our guide for making a custom agenda). It's a good idea to add a friendly, personalized introduction to your agenda so an advisor can get to know you before you talk on the phone. When you're ready, click 'send request'! The advisor can then review your request and schedule times for the call. Once you have agreed on a time, make sure you understand how to dial in to a call.
