Miner Network

About the program

The Miner Network program is a robust platform that allows S&T alums, faculty, staff and students to all connect virtually around almost any topic of interest.  From early career advice, to graduate school insight, to job-search assistance, S&T(UMR/MSM) Miners can now leverage their common bonds to build and strengthen their professional and personal networks. 


What is it and what do I need to do?

  • The Miner Network is a web-based platform that allows you to create a profile (or use your LinkedIn profile) to be matched with advisors and advisees (mentors/mentees)
  • Go to mst.firsthand.co to sign up and create your profile
    • Select topics that you would be willing to discuss with students or other advisees
    • Select possible times of the day/week that might work for you.
      • When an advisee wants to match/chat with you, they will request a time/date and you will approve/deny it.
    • Use the built-in platform to communicate via message or video chat
