2010 Outlook: Career Services Offices will Focus on More than Just Graduating Seniors
is not unusual for schools to maintain contact with their alumni long
after graduation, whether it be for class reunions, sporting events, or
fundraisers. It is unusual, however, for the Career Services Office to
contact alumni who have graduated more than a year ago to help them in
their job search. Today, that is changing.
The New York Times
recently reported that alumni are increasingly using the Career
Services Office from their school as a job search resource, no matter
their graduation date. In fact, the Career Services Office at the
University of Colorado, Boulder has hired a new staff member dedicated
solely to alumni. From hosting alumni seminars to working one-on-one
with job seekers, Career Services Offices are becoming a large part of

schools are now realizing that offering alumni services from their
career office is a great way to connect with alumni. However, if the
alumni do not come to you, it may be hard to find them, connect with
them, and offer your services. So, what steps can you take to keep
track of your alumni and help them land jobs? OneWire has the solution.
