Once your advisor profile is complete we start recommending connections for you (and start recommending you to others). The more information you include in your profile, the more likely students students are to reach out!
In the meantime, you can start connecting with fellow alumni to develop your own network. You can learn about sending messages via In-App Messaging.
When a student requests a phone call with you, we'll send you an email with details about the student and the agenda they'd like to discuss. We'll ask that you propose times for the session or decline the request. The email will look something like this:
If you've never had a one-on-one call with a student before, no fear. You don't need to be an expert to be helpful! You can lead the conversation by sharing your experiences and career journey. Ask students questions and help them define their own goals. If the conversation goes well, offer to support them as they work toward those goals, by staying in touch and serving as a resource.
Good luck and please reach out to us with any questions you might have.
