University of Wisconsin - Stout Mentor Program

The Stout CareerLink Mentoring Program identifies UW-Stout alumni and others who are willing to help undergraduates and alumni with career and job hunting issues.


The goal of this program is to pair students enrolled in the UW-Stout Packaging Engineering program that wish to have a direct connection to working professionals involved in the packaging industry.


We are asking professionals located in the IoPP North Central Region, which includes Chicago, Wisconsin, and Minnesota Chapters, to participate.


This will allow a broader base of knowledge to draw from to better match participants with their discipline of interest.

  • Be a guest speaker for classes
