College Alumni Networks

College Alumni Networks Copyright Neustockimages
Definition: A college alumni network offers a way for college graduates to stay connected. Often maintained by a college’s career services or alumni affairs office, the alumni network contains information on each graduate’s career, residence, and/or contact information.

Alumni can access the network to ask for career information or job search advice from other alumni. College alumni networks are an excellent way to make contacts in one’s field or to get help starting on a new career path.

A college’s career services or alumni affairs office may also hold events for members of the network so graduates can network in person.
