Getting Started

Anyone who is willing to serve as a resource for Rice students is welcome to join the OWL Career Mentor Network! We are always expanding our diverse network of professionals across different career fields, academic backgrounds, geographical locations, and cultures. We not only encourage alumni to join our Career Mentor Network, but all friends of Rice University including faculty, staff, parents and employers.

Step 1
Join the Rice University OWL Career Mentor Network on LinkedIn. Not on LinkedIn yet? Learn about LinkedIn and how to build a professional profile.

Step 2
Update your Group Digest Email Settings. Group digest emails help you stay current on the latest discussions taking place on the group page. To set the frequency of your digest emails scroll over your name at the top of any LinkedIn page and select “Settings.” Towards the bottom of the page select “Groups, Companies, & Applications” and then “Set the frequency of group digest emails.” Next to Rice University OWL Career Mentor Network select either “Daily Digest Email” or “Weekly Digest Email."

Step 3
Participate in Discussions. Current Rice students, other OWL Career Mentors, and Center for Career Development will post questions and topics of discussion. You can share your valuable expertise, advice and insight by participating in these posts.

Step 4
See our Mentoring Opportunities and FAQ for more information on OWL Career Mentorship.
