How do I build meaningful connections with alumni?
Ask honest, genuine open-ended "what" and "how" questions. For example, "What are you passionate about in your career?" or "How did you get started on this career path?" Once you join, refer to the Resources section if you need ideas for getting the conversation started. Think about what you'd like to share about yourself. Be receptive to suggestions and feedback. Approach the connection with an open mind, professionalism, and respect.
Please DO NOT ask a connection for a job or internship in your first message. This community is about building your professional network, gaining exposure to industry experts, exploring areas of career interest, and developing your communication skills. Building rapport with an alum may lead to a conversation about opportunities, but opportunities come with established relationships.
Who can see my profile information?
体育365Alumni and professionals cannot search for or view your student profile until you make a connection request. Other students cannot view your profile.

How do I use this platform?
Be active! Browse the community of alumni and professionals who have signed up to share career advice by industry, major, employer, location, help topics, etc. Send a message to introduce yourself and ask a question, and/or send a meeting request (via in-person, phone, or video chat) through the platform. You will receive email reminders leading up to your meeting. Most meetings are 30-minute conversations around the specific topics alumni have volunteered to help with: connecting college experience to the workplace, starting a new career, moving to a new city, informational interviews, and more! In our Discussion forum or Groups, you can also post career questions, helpful advice, and more for the full community of users to engage and respond to.
