This week’s Viking Connectors: Physician & Worker in Human Resources

Perhaps the most useful way to learn what a career is all about is to find someone doing that career and connect with them.  Augustana Colleges has more than 10,000 alumni active on LinkedIn and 96 of them have signed up as Viking Connectors to assist current students regarding all things career.  They are ready and waiting to help you learn what a job or city or field is really like, understand how to get started in an internship or job, and know what it takes to achieve a life filled with meaning and purpose.

Each week we will highlight two of our Viking Connectors.  The links below share effective ways to reach out and connect with them plus links to find other Viking Connectors who might fit best with what you are seeking.
