Networking with former college classmates can be as important as your college degree. In the years since pulling all-nighters and frat parties, your classmates have become professionals. Your alumni network can help you expand your professional horizons. The new LinkedIn Classmates feature was created to help you stay in touch. LinkedIn Classmates is a tool for insights and networking for alumni of colleges and universities around the world. The Classmates feature provides high-level insights about alumni of your school, as well as their detailed professional profiles. LinkedIn Classmates is designed to help you:
- Explore Possibilities - See what alumni in your field have accomplished since graduation
- Make Connections - Reconnect with old friends, and reach out to alumni in your field for their industry expertise and career opportunities
- Find Opportunities - From mentoring to jobs, your fellow alumni often are ready to help
Career trends show where alumni work, live and what they're up to now. Interactive graphs give insights about your school's alumni as a whole, drilling down to specific companies, locations and job functions. In addition to the graphs, you can also see profile summaries of specific people to find out what you have in common now.
