LinkedIn for Alumni & Students

LinkedIn, the professional networking website, is not just for job seekers. We encourage all of our alumni and students to create LinkedIn profiles for marketing, networking, recruiting and job searching. Some employment analysts predict LinkedIn profiles may replace the traditional resume in the not-too-distant future.

LinkedIn enables you to: 

  • Create a business profile and professional summary
  • Find and be found by colleagues, clients, and classmates
  • Leverage tools to find and reach the people you need
  • Build a powerful network of trusted professionals
  • Discover professional connections and business opportunities

Once you've created your LinkedIn profile, join the Wofford Alumni Network on LinkedIn (tutorial below). Membership in the group increases on a daily basis, and it's a valuable tool for finding alumni connections via industry, company and geographical searches. You'll also have access to a host of subgroups representing professional fields, geographic locations, and class years. 

Access to the Wofford Alumni Network group on LinkedIn is free, completely optional, and is available only to alumni, current Wofford students and Wofford faculty and staff.
