Your professional network is a vital part of your career development and advancement. The UNCG alumni network is large and diverse. Alumni work across all sectors and industries and in regions across the country and throughout the world. As a Spartan, you have a shared experience with fellow alumni and these are great connections to make as you move through your career. Take advantage of the following resources to make meaningful connections:
UNCG Alumni Groups – Whether you are seeking to connect with alumni in a particular geographic region or to connect based on your affiliation, there are a number of ways to get involved. Meet alumni who studied in the same College, shared the same major, or are passionate about the same interests.
Get Involved – Stay connected with the university by completing a brief form indicating areas you would like to get involved. Someone from the alumni association will reach out to upon receipt of your form.
Join Groups on LinkedIn – With more than 500 million users, LinkedIn is the leading social platform to connect with professionals in your area and in your industry. If you haven’t created your LinkedIn profile, now is the time. Create your unique URL and post a professional photo, preferably from the shoulders up. Draft a headline that includes your area of study or expertise and create a summary that includes the types of positions you are seeking. Request recommendations from your colleagues, past supervisors, and professors to complement your resume. Learn about how to select and join a few of the more than 50 UNCG groups on LinkedIn.
