Houghton Connects provides the opportunity for current students to connect with Houghton alumni and parents for the purpose of networking and advising during the process of career exploration and job/internship searching.  The program is brought to you through the ongoing partnership between the Vocational Opportunities and Career Advising (VOCA) Center and Alumni Relations.

Houghton Connects advisors teach students the value of networking through sharing their professional experiences and insight. Advisors may offer short or long-term guidance via e-mail, phone, or in person.  As an advisor, you choose the level of commitment and the means of communication.

Some things that an advisor might provide for a student are:

  • An informational interview
  • A resume critique
  • Connections in the student’s field
  • A mock interview
  • Encouragement and support during career exploration and job searching
