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

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 the 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
