BYU Connect
Want to Network?

What is BYU Connect?
BYU Connect is a program that allows students to network with an alumni mentor. The program has over 1,500 BYU alumni who are willing to share knowledge with students pursuing similar fields of interest.

How to Get Involved 
To find a mentor, simply register to provide basic background information, and then search the alumni database to identify professionals in your field of interest. Once you find your professional, you can contact the alumni to coordinate a time to connect in one of four ways: a lunch meeting, phone call, Skype/FaceTime call, or job shadowing.

Get Started
BYU Connect is a great resource to expand your network, broaden your perspective, and make vital career decisions.
