Career Services launched a new program in 2020, Hussman Connections.

Simply click the link below to view a master list of Hussman alumni who are eager to be a resource. Review the list of contacts and reach out to those with similar career interests and those that can provide support with your specific career needs.  All initial contact will take place over LinkedIn. All you need to do is send a connection request with a note referencing “Hussman Connections”:

From here, you and the alum will set up a virtual meeting of your choice (Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, phone call, etc.). This can be a one-time meeting or you can plan follow-up conversations— the choice is yours! This database is updated regularly, so be sure to check back for newly added alumni!

We ask that everyone be respectful of one another’s time. If you schedule a meeting, please be sure to follow through. Some alumni may receive multiple requests, so please be patient as you await their response.
