About the Rice University OWL Career Mentor Network

Friends of Rice University - including alumni, faculty, staff, and parents - are all invited to join the Center for Career Development’s Rice University OWL Career Mentor Network on LinkedIn! 

The OWL Career Mentors serve as a resource to educate Rice students on career related topics, connect with students to expand their network, and empower students to confidently negotiate the professional world.

 OWL Career Mentors may be a resource for students by: 

  • Participating in helpful, career-related discussions on our LinkedIn group page
  • Providing one-on-one career mentoring to students when they message you on LinkedIn  
  • Writing articles about what it's like to work in a certain job or field, or offer insight on general career topics
  • Offering relocation tips or insight about living in certain geographical areas
  • Participating in career panels and other events on campus

For more details on how to get involved in each of these activities, please see our How Can I Become More Involved page. There are also many benefits to becoming an OWL Career Mentor.
