What is the Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) Network?
The ASK Network is a group of Puget Sound graduates who have volunteered to share information with Puget Sound students and alumni about career options and postgraduate study.

What do ASK volunteers do?
All ASK volunteers provide information about their career and graduate school experience through their searchable ASK Profile online. The most common way that students interact with ASK volunteers is by viewing ASK Profiles to get ideas about the kinds of careers that alumni with various majors pursue.

Beyond keeping your ASK Profile up to date, your level of participation is negotiable between you and the requestor. You can choose to make yourself available to answer direct queries by phone, email, or in person that may include:

  • Loggers interested in exploring career options with professionals in specific fields, seeking advice about graduate school choices, or curious about transitioning to life after Puget Sound.
  • Career and Employment Services (CES) staff members inviting your participation in career-related activities.
  • Faculty members advising students about career and graduate school options.

You choose your level of involvement and can indicate your ASK contact preferences. You are not committed to any participation beyond keeping your ASK Profile up to date. If you are interested in ways to become more involved with students' career development, check out the ASK Toolkit

Is ASK a job placement service?
No. The ASK Network is not designed to be a job/internship-searching system. ASK is intended to allow students and alumni to research and share information about careers and graduate schools. For more information, please see the System Usage section of the ASK Privacy and Terms of Use Policies.

Why do faculty now have access to the ASK Network?
ASK Network access has been granted to faculty and to select staff members who have the role of career advisors, for the sole purpose of supporting the career development of students and alumni.

How will people contact me?
You can indicate in your ASK Profile how you prefer to be contacted, and by whom. Most alumni prefer phone or email for the initial contact. Some prefer to be contacted at home, others at their place of work. Remember, since the primary way students use the ASK Network is to search it and view ASK Profiles, you may not be contacted at all.
