Connecting alumni to each other

Start (or continue) your career exploration from the comfort of your own computer.

The University and the Alumni Association are committed to providing alumni with the resources they need to stay competitive within their chosen disciplines, as well as tools to help with career changes. 

Explore different industries and employers. Access powerful databases through the University of Chicago Library. Watch career-focused panel discussions and presentations. Or do some professional networking with other UChicago alumni.

UChicago Wisr Network

Wisr is an engagement platform that makes it easy for alumni to connect with and guide current students toward a fulfilling career path through automated matching, scheduling, and follow-up communications. Wisr lets students request 15—30 minute conversations with alumni to learn about different career paths, industries, skills they need to succeed, and even what classes they should take. By sharing just a little bit of their time, alumni can help students get on the right track, early in their college career.
