About Wisdom Wanted

Wisdom Wanted ads are specific requests for career advice that the Hiatt Career Center posts on this blog, and also emails to our volunteer list on a quarterly basis. Students and alumni write ads seeking advice on a variety of topics, from grad school applications to job opportunities in a specific field. When volunteers want to respond to an ad, they contact the student/alum directly via email.
