As an Econ Career Mentor, you would be available for speaking engagements, class and student organization presentations, informational interviews, job shadow opportunities, and individual outreach by students for career exploration and advice.  You may be called on for these engagement opportunities throughout the year but are not required to participate in any particular event or program; each mentor may select opportunities based on his or her interest and availability.

If you are interested in participating in the Economics Career Advisers Network, please complete a quick survey to tell us about your background and information about your interest in a range of student engagement opportunities. 

We are so grateful for your commitment to UWM and hope the Economics Career Advisers Network will give you the opportunity to continue to share your time and talent with current UWM students!
Questions, concerns, or feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
