Seeking Alumni to Volunteer with the CDC

The CDC teaches a course for undecided first-year students to support the selection of majors and careers, FY1800: Discovering Majors and Careers. As part of this course, each student is matched with an alumnus to facilitate an informational interview. The CDC is seeking alumni volunteers who can provide insight about their majors at WPI, talk about their career history, current roles, companies, and industries, and answer additional student questions. The interview requires a time commitment of about 20-30 minutes via telephone, Skype, or in person. Sign up online.
