CALLING ALL ALUMNI!


Have you joined your college alumni association?  Have you looked recently at some of the career resources and networking events it offers?  I have recently resuscitated my relationship with UC Berkeley and realize I had never really put the blue and gold to work for me, or me for it.  Alumni associations often have their own job boards and social networking communities online, and offer an array of networking mixers on campus and in different cities.  They also have their own groups on LinkedIn.  Typically people have a natural trust for someone from their same college – you have shared similar experiences, challenges, and camaraderie!  If you are looking for a new job, see what resources they have to offer.  If you are gainfully employed or employing, see what services, mentoring, or opportunities you can provide to other alumni.
