    Ongoing Opportunities

    Smeal students are often looking for quick advice from someone who works in a specific industry, company, or who lives in a specific part of the country or world.

    If you are interested in offering your insights and experiences to a student on a one-off basis, please contact the Smeal Alumni Relations Office.

    Additionally, by joining the official LinkedIn Group for Smeal alumni, you can connect with current students and share your advice in an on-line forum. Smeal is encouraging students to create a profile on LinkedIn and training them to reach out to alumni for advice in a professional manner.
