Posted on May 26, 2011 by


Building a career community can help to brand your institution, promote alumni engagement and encourage financial support now and in the years to come.  Your alumni will never forget how your network helped them land that dream job.

Here are 5 tips to amp up your alumni career services:

1.  Don’t discriminate against classes – in today’s career environment, alumni of all ages and classes are changing jobs

2. Post articles and quick reads on your career services website that will benefit your alumni job hunters.
For example: Templates for Great Resume Writing

3. Partner with alumni chapters in regions where you know you have a large alumni base & set up networking events

4.  Provide free online webinars for your alumni on different job hunting skills

Example: Interviewing Tips & Tricks

5.  Utilize LinkedIn!  Create an Alumni Career Services group where alumni can connect and view each others’ profiles and post job openings.

What else are you doing to help your alumni advance and change careers?
