When OCR connects with UW–Madison alumni, one of the most common questions we are asked is how to connect with other alumni and graduating students to advance their company or personal business goals. We are pleased to share with you Badger Bridge, a new program from our colleagues at the Wisconsin Alumni Association® (WAA), that provides a platform for networking with Badgers in your field, at leading organizations, and in communities around the world. Not UW-Madison Alumni? You can still post jobs here.
