Connect With Economics Students

Alumni and friends of the department play an integral role in our students’ academic and career success. You can help economics students by sharing information and advice about your career path, industry or company.

Your network is one of the best ways to find out about opportunities. What better way to help students learn about career opportunities than by connecting with other Badgers!

Just some of the ways that you can connect with current students include:

  • Participate in an alumni panel, sharing experiences from your time on campus and at work to help students plan for the future.
  • Help students build their networks at one of our speed networking events.
  • Interview students preparing for the job market at one of our mock interview events.
  • Advertise an internship or job at your organization to Wisconsin Economics students.

If you want to get involved, please start by contacting our Director of Career Services, Elizabeth Foste, by email at
