|Building Your Community|
Launching a new alumni community is exciting, but with all the planning around how you want the site to look and the shiny new features that you’ve added, sometimes the part we leave until last can be explaining the benefits to your alumni! Here are 6 benefits to joining an alumni community that you can use to encourage them to sign up.
Particularly in a post-COVID world, face-to-face events are likely to have a tight guest list to control numbers and practice social distancing. Be the first to hear about new events when they go live, so you can sign up before they sell out!
With hundreds or thousands of alumni working in all different kinds of sectors, you can easily network with people in your dream industry and find out about how they got there, and what advice they would give to you.
Along with networking, you can find out about new job opportunities directly from your alumni site - sometimes before they are even released externally. Get ahead by checking into your community site regularly to find out about new positions when they are added to the jobs board.
Overcome a big challenge? Worked your way up to your dream job? Or simply got some great advice to share? Inspire the next generation by sharing your story with your alumni community.
Read about developments in your school, find out how you can help support new projects, and hear the news about your old teachers! When you leave the school, you become part of our lifelong community and we’d love to stay in touch with you and share what’s changed!
If you’re considering giving back to your school, find out about the range of funds we are running so you can give back to a cause close to your heart. We’ll keep you updated of our fundraising efforts and let you know how your donation has helped to make a difference.
