Badger Bridge, UW–Madison’s online network for career and alumni connections, has reached a milestone of 5,000 active participants. Badger Bridge connects alumni and students to each other to foster real-time mentoring opportunities. Badgers can reach out to learn about industry trends, gain helpful advice, or serve as professional experts in their fields. Rather than long-term commitments, alumni are ready to help each other immediately across a range of professions. With an alumni network stretching across the globe, WFAA is now inviting students to join the platform to explore career paths and make connections for internships and that all-important first job after college. Please join us by encouraging your staff, alumni, and student networks to meet you on the Bridge.
