The DePaul Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) Network helps connect DePaul students with alumni and other professionals for career insight, conversations and networking. DePaul ASK volunteers are here to offer their expertise and help you grow. The goal of the DePaul ASK network is to help students explore college and professional transitions, life challenges, and get answers to university and career questions. Alumni can also connect with fellow alumni for professional networking. Over 3,000 alumni and friends from across industries are in the network.
