Expert Advice

Give back to EWU on your own terms, while helping next-generation professionals.

By EWU Alumni Association

For Eastern students and recent alumni looking to embark on a new career, few assets are more rewarding than the advice of someone who’s successfully accomplished this goal. That’s why EWU’s Office of Alumni Relations and the Career Center have partnered to create the Eagle Career Network, ECN, a new online networking community that will provide powerful, on-demand career mentoring opportunities.

This “Eagles helping Eagles” model relies on alumni and friends to serve as resources to current students and fellow grads who could benefit from learning about the professional experiences and career journeys of seasoned business people. Eagle mentors drive how they want to be involved. It might be one-time support, such as reviewing a resume or sharing advice via an online chat or phone call. It could involve an ongoing series of conversations or email exchanges. Or it might entail allowing individuals to chat with — or job shadow — you or other professionals in your organization who are doing what they would like to do.

For those helping out, their generosity will come with rewards: By interacting with ECN participants, you will be able to make direct connections with other Eagle professionals and enhance the strength of your organization by identifying talent within the EWU community.
