Updates from the YED Committee  |  April 2021

 
 
 

Scholarship

One of the initiatives of the YED is to sustain a scholarship fund in which young alumni can support current students. There are a lot of different reasons and ways people can give back to their alma mater. This month, YED Scholarship Chair Katie Bell shares why she decided to donate to the YED scholarship fund:

"As I advance through my career as a young professional in Chicago, I've realized how many doors my CEE degree from UIUC opened for me. I found my first job by going to a CEE Job Fair in the Newmark Crane Bay, and have made countless connections with UIUC alumni in the industry ever since. I had such an amazing experience at UIUC and I give back because I want to make sure future generations of civil engineers can enjoy the same."

Networking

The Networking Committee previously shared successful tips to network virtually.  Here is a helpful Forbes article on how to cultivate and maintain those connections on LinkedIn!  In addition, the Networking Committee is looking forward to planning in-person networking events later in 2021, so stay on the lookout for more information!

 

 
 
 

Career Development

Look for upcoming Career Development plans in the next month or two!

 
 
 

Mentoring

We are delighted with the tremendous response received in our 2nd CEE YED mentorship round and are excited to kick things off. For those mentees who were not able to sign up, applications have re-opened until May 31st!

Application can be found here: To enroll as a mentee, please fill out this Mentee Application

We also invite UIUC CEE students graduating in May 2021 to also take advantage of this opportunity. Watch out for the enrollment email coming in the next few weeks. This is a great opportunity to connect with experienced alumni and kick start your careers!
