Because LinkedIn is such a powerful and popular career networking tool, the Alumni Association is committed to leveraging the site as a forum for alumni-to-alumni and student-to-alumni networking. We encourage you to join the Alumni Association Professional Network group, where you'll find subgroups for peer networking as well as mentoring to current students. We also sponsor a Job Forum group, where you can gain career advice as well as share job postings with other alumni and view jobs that have been posted.
