Steering Students

The center for career and leadership development is looking to tap into the wit, wisdom and war stories of alumni in order to help educate current students on the ways of the real world. The center’s alumni career advising service matches up students with alumni. The two meet just once or twice for about half an hour or so, or converse via e-mail. That gives the students a chance to quiz the alums about what courses they should take, what the current trends are, what the profession is really like. And, it gives the alums a chance to offer insights into the career field, tell a few tales from the front lines and share their pearls of wisdom. The students seeking advice are plentiful; the alumni to supply it are not. If you would like to share what you’ve learned during your career, contact Patrice Reider at 513 745-4882 or e-mail her at
