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 first-year student is matched with a WPI alum to facilitate an informational interview (pdf). The CDC is seeking alumni volunteers who can provide insight about their major at WPI, share information about their career history, discuss their current role, company, and industry, and answer student questions. The time commitment averages 20–30 minutes via phone or Skype—or in person. To sign up, please fill out our survey.
