Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK)

The Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) Program provides students and graduates with the opportunity to connect with participating Laurier alumni and learn first-hand about the careers they have successfully pursued.

Through the ASK Program, students and graduates can find out how Laurier alumni have found work in their chosen professions and learn about the organizations for which they are working. The participating alumni have indicated what information they are willing to provide, ranging from discussing their career and employer to allowing Laurier students and graduates to shadow them at work.

In partnership with Laurier Alumni, the ASK Program is available in Navigator. This format allows Laurier students and graduates to search for alumni using a variety of criteria such as academic major, occupation, type of assistance provided and/or organization.

If you are in the process of choosing a career, preparing for a job interview or exploring where your major or degree might lead you, this is an excellent way to gather information.

For information about how to connect with the alumni and the types of questions you could ask, please review the Informational Interviewing booklet.
