Assist with an Event
Careers for Pioneers
Alumni and parents are invited to meet current students and mentor / offer advice regarding careers, internships, and degree-applicable endeavors. This event is held once a year – typically during Fall semester. Visit Alumni & Parent Programs for more information.
We are always looking for volunteers to share their expertise and conduct mock interviews during various programs throughout the year. Areas where we would like assistance from alumni include helping students to:
- assess their values, interests, personality and skills;
- create an effective resume and cover letter;
- learn how to job search effectively;
- practice interviewing skills; and
- create a plan of action.

Everyday we speak with alumni who want to assist current students and recent alumni connect with career resources and information. The L&C Net is a network of alumni and parents who have volunteered to act as career “experts” to LC students and alumni in transition. Hosted as a group on LinkedIn, alumni volunteers live in locations throughout the United States and abroad, and represent a cross-section of industries and professional careers. Joining L&C Net is a great way to connect to students and share your career knowledge and expertise.
If you have not yet created a LinkedIn account, you will be prompted to do so. Once you have clicked to join the group, the registration will be pending until an L&C Net administrator approves your registration. Please contact us with any questions.
If you’re interested in using L&C Net to network with other alumni members, please see our resource library for additional networking resources and tips.
