Alumni Networking: Become a Career Advisor
Thank you for your willingness to be a career advisor to students and young alumni! The St. Lawrence alumni network is strong and active, and allows individuals to carry on discussions, offer feedback, and share insights with current students and alumni. It also provides alumni the chance to broaden their own network by searching for and connecting with fellow alums. St. Lawrence University maintains a specific group within LinkedIn, and alumni and students interested in becoming part of this group are encouraged to submit a request to join.
Also, there's a new cloud platform that we have begun to encourage alumni and students to use in making connections. Please consider creating a profile on Alumni Fire. The Alumni Fire platform allows you to create a personal account that indicates if you're interested in assisting Laurentians with a series of career-related tasks. Within this system, you'll be able to indicate the number of times per month you'd be able to answer students' inquiries such as those pertaining to career advice, job shadows, informational interviews or other areas. Students also create accounts, and they search for alumni based on variety of criteria, including geographic location, industry, major, minor, class year or group (such as athletic team, campus club or Greek organization...to name a few).
To be added to the St. Lawrence networking group please login to LinkedIn (linkedin.com) using your account, or create an account if you do not have one (if creating a new account make sure to complete your profile, especially the education section). Click on Groups, conduct a search for "St. Lawrence University (SLU)", and request to join. Once approved, you will be able to post discussions, offer insight and guidance to others, and search for and add connections to your network.
Your assistance in guiding the next generation of Laurentians is appreciated. If you have questions or comments, or require assistance please contact Career Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
