Hillsdale College Career Network
Over the years, our office has worked to develop an organized compilation of our alumni, parent, and friend connections dedicated to the personal and professional development of students and graduates. The Hub is where you can view and communicate with these advocates directly. Users are organized by location, major, or field of work and each member is tagged with how they are willing to assist you, such as informational interviews or offering a job shadow. Log in to The Hub with your Hillsdale credentials and begin networking today!
