Collaborate with your peers by using the new Career Champions Directory

The Center for Career Development is thrilled to announce the launch of our new UConn Career Champions Directory, specially crafted to foster connection and knowledge-sharing among faculty, staff, alumni, and employer partners. At the heart of this initiative is the goal to collectively elevate the career preparedness of our students, and we invite you to join this dynamic community to play a pivotal role in achieving that objective. The group provides a unique opportunity for networking and collaboration with peers who share your passion for nurturing the next generation’s career success. It’s a space where you can exchange innovative ideas, discuss best practices, and tap into the collective wisdom of a diverse community dedicated to career and educational excellence. 

By becoming a member of this group, you will gain access to a Career Champions member directory where you send messages, connect virtually one-on-one through the platform, and share information and questions to the discussion board. You’ll also gain access to a wealth of curated resources, trainings and upcoming events to enhance your career development expertise and keep you up-to-date with the latest trends in career development.

Powered by the Center for Career Development’s new student and alumni mentorship and networking platform, HuskyLink, it only takes a few minutes to create an account and you can sync it with your LinkedIn profile to make it even easier. In addition to joining the Career Champions Directory, we encourage you to become HuskyLink mentors so that students and alumni can reach out to you for career and graduate school guidance, and so you can expand your network across the entire UConn HuskyLink community.  The commitment is completely flexible and it’s a wonderful way to build professional relationships with UConn alumni, faculty, staff and employers.

Join the group here to become an integral part of this invaluable network!
