Alumni can give back to current students by sharing their professional pathways, industry knowledge, and networking with fellow alumni around the world who have volunteered to participate. Through these conversations, everyone in the UNH family can give and gain valuable perspectives and connections to empower professional success for all.
- Click "Join Now." Please register with the email address currently on file with UNH. If you are not sure if we have your current email or you'd prefer to use a different email, please be patient, as we will review and verify all requests within 24-48 hours. Note for Faculty/Staff: Please log in using the "UNH Login" button to create your profile using your current UNH username and password.
- Complete your profile, syncing information from LinkedIn if you choose. Read the Professional Responsibility Agreement.
- Start networking and sharing advice! PLEASE NOTE: All current students will be invited to join in September 2018, as we'd like to build the alumni community first. In the meantime, you can still share or seek career advice with fellow UNH alumni and professionals through the "Explore the Alumni Community" section of the site.
Why volunteer to share your career advice and professional experience?
Whether you're looking to help current UNH students or fellow alumni, seeking out advice from another professional in your field, or looking to network in a new industry/field with other Wildcats, Wildcat Connections has you covered. This is a community to provide students and fellow alumni job-market advice, industry expertise, and valuable post-graduation connections. No matter where you live or how limited your time and/or experience is, you can still make a meaningful difference for someone or many in your UNH family. Wildcat Connections is also a great way to expand your own professional network and show your Wildcat pride!
Who can see my profile information?
Students, fellow alumni, and faculty/staff will be able to search for and view your profile information. Alumni cannot view student profiles, as students must first initiate contact with an alum for a connection to be made. Alums can always reach out to other alumni users, so be sure to both share your advice and build/expand your own professional network!
How do I use Wildcat Connections?
Once your profile is completed and approved, students and alumni will be able to connect with you regarding the career advice help topics you’ve selected. Likewise, you can also utilize the platform to reach out to fellow alumni and professionals regarding the same career advice topics and industry areas. Be active! Browse the network of individuals who are willing to share career advice by industry, major, employer, location, and more. In our Discussion forum, you can answer questions posted by others or post your own.
We are launching this platform in July 2018 and hope to get many alumni involved before we promote to students in September. By signing up for this platform, you're indicating your willingness to help, though it may take time for other students and alumni to discover your profile. Please be patient if you’re not immediately contacted for individual advice. In the meantime, post and answer questions in the Discussion forum, in the groups you choose to join, or connect with other alumni through the "Explore the Alumni Community" section of the site.
It will be up to you and the other connection to set up a meeting (via in-person, phone, or video chat), which can be scheduled entirely through the platform. You will receive email reminders leading up to your meeting. Most meetings are 30-minute career conversations around the specific topics alumni have volunteered to help with. If you get a request, we hope you'll accept it, but you do have the option to respectfully decline if you don't have the time or the conversation fit does not feel right.
