Career Corner
Did you know that January is National Mentoring Month? If you’ve ever wondered how you could help out Emerson students, sharing your career advice is one option. You can be as involved as you’d like, whether it’s answering a couple of questions a month or a longer-term, one-on-one partnership with a student. Just go to Emerge and post an introduction, saying you’re happy to answer questions, and the students will ask! Want more info? Send an email to and we’ll show you how easy it is to make a difference to a student.
The Career Development Center is looking for nominees for the alumni spotlight series, Women of Emerson, started in 2017 by Jessica Chance '00. The series highlights the accomplishments and careers of the women of Emerson! Nominate yourself and/or another Emersonian and help shine a light on your friends, peers, and colleagues.
Whether you rent or own, now is a great time to support clean energy and go solar. Emerson has partnered with EnergySage, a free, easy-to-use resource and comparison shopping site for alumni to take advantage of.

The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act means you get a 30% tax credit when you install solar (or solar plus storage to protect from outages) at your home. And even if you can’t install solar panels on your roof, you can subscribe to a community solar farm to save money and help the planet. If you’ve got questions about solar, just enter your zip code and sign up for a free account on EnergySage. You’ll get access to a dedicated Energy Advisor who can answer any questions about going solar and even help you understand and compare solar quotes.
