Consider becoming a UNH career mentor
    The UNH Advising and Career Center invites you to join the UNH Career Mentor Network (CMN). CMN supports UNH students and alumni via one-time, informational interviews, designed for networking and advice. Examples of questions we encourage students to ask are: "What is a typical day in your job?" and "What have you done since UNH and how did you get there?" Your insight can have a huge impact on current students and can create a culture of networking among UNH alumni.
    Enjoy the satisfaction of helping others from UNH find their career paths. For more information, visit Wildcat Careers, UNH’s online career resource: www.myinterfase.com/unh/mentor.
