While you’re working on your degree, it’s also time to start thinking about what your future holds after Michigan. The Alumni Association is here to help you through a variety of networking programs, workshops, and events. Face to Face with Michigan Alumni connects you to alumni leaders for career advice. We’ll guide you through the do’s and don’ts of networking at our Hail & Hello Workshop and Reception. And we’ll show you how to gain career advice and professional development at special Alumni Association events or on LinkedIn, where you can find approximately 340,000 alumni. Who you know is important, so get to know your Alumni Association.


Need career advice? Have questions about the field you want to go into? Here’s your opportunity to have 30-minute conversations with Michigan alumni from a variety of industries, cities, and academic backgrounds. Once registered, students will receive contact information so they can follow up directly with their selected alumnus/a via phone, Skype, FaceTime, or Google Hangout. We ask you to reach out to alumni immediately to schedule a time to connect and for connections to occur within one month of selection.

Hail & Hello Networking Workshop and Event

This exciting opportunity pairs a networking workshop with an event. First, we’ll walk you through the art of networking and demonstrate the skills you need to do it well. Then, you’ll practice in a comfortable reception environment with Michigan alumni who want to help you succeed in using your networking skills.

Participate in a short education session before enjoying mocktails and appetizers at the Alumni Center while networking with Michigan alumni. These events are free and open to all U-M students.

Check back later for future Hail & Hello events.
