UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media

We need your help! Interested in helping UNC Hussman students navigate their careers? Hussman Connections is a way for alumni to serve as a networking resource to our students during COVID-19. Add your name to a master list of alumni contacts. Students will look for shared career interests on the list and reach out to you via LinkedIn to set up a virtual meeting. Thanks for your consideration!

Another way to help: Apply by June 15 to be a mentor to a UNC Hussman student. Remember that person in your life who made you feel like no career question was too naive, who really listened, who shared experiences and helped open doors? Be that person.
