The importance of giving back. How a chance to meet with professionals can jumpstart a career. And a friendship that naturally developed into a mentorship.
In a video that premiered at the 2019 Rock Chalk Ball, students and alumni shared stories of how one Jayhawk connection changed their world.
“It’s strength in numbers. The more people we have engaged in the Jayhawk Career Network in Kansas City will help everybody network,” says Jason Booker, d’99. “It’s helped me in my career in KC, and there are lots of people who would benefit from the same opportunity to connect and work together.”
Six Jayhawks describe how mentoring and making connections have helped them succeed.
These stories are just a few of the many made possible through the Jayhawk Career Network, which gives students and alumni access to career resources, jobs, events, programming and connections at every stage of their career. Services include KU Mentoring, a job board, informational articles and more.
