Networking with Alumni through LinkedIn

A key element to any job search is connecting and growing your network. This will help you learn more detailed information about the industries you're interested in and about potential openings that may not be advertised publicly. Connecting with alumni is an excellent way to build your networking skills and make connections that could lead to new and exciting career opportunities. 

The LinkedIn Alumni Search Tool is a terrific resource for online, professional networking. It provides a great opportunity to connect with professionals in various fields and levels. Sign up & create a profile to get started. 

LinkedIn Jobs can help you connect with employers that are looking for candidates that match your experience, jobs with your skill sets and Goucher alumni/ae working for those employers.
