You already know CLA and the U. You know that we proudly provide a 21st century education for thousands of Minnesotans, and we also make ground-breaking discoveries that improve peoples' lives. Not only are we a creator of highly-trained workers, but we also bring in nearly $1 billion in research grants that stimulate our state's economy.
Now how do we spread the word?
On April 6, 2010, the College honored 21 alumni who have made remarkable contributions or attained significant achievements in their fields.
Social media is everywhere. Many of you are probably already using it to keep in touch with friends and family, to share opinions, links, photos, and videos. Of course, some of you may also be using it for professional networking and job searches. The College of Liberal Arts has recently launched a LinkedIn site for current students and alumni to connect professionally.
This past year many of you cheered and volunteered to support CLA and its students. Thank you! The CLA Alumni Society wants to thank you and to let everyone know about a new way to connect to other CLA alums and students: we've launched a LinkedIn group.
In October three CLA alumni received the prestigious Alumni Service Award from the University of Minnesota for their long-time service and legacy of volunteerism. The awards were presented at a celebration hosted by the University of Minnesota Alumni Association.
Since November 2008, CLA's Career and Community Learning Center (CCLC) and the CLA Alumni Society have partnered on an initiative for CLA students to learn more about networking and work places through company site visits.
On March 25, 2009, the College honored 16 alumni who have made remarkable contributions or attained significant achievements in their fields.
CLA recently celebrated its spring commencement, and many of our graduates are facing an uncertain job market. Even some of us who wore our caps and gowns several (ahem!) years ago may find ourselves also facing this market.
We spoke with Sarah Jackson, Sydneyann Chase, Emily Scholtes, and Jaime Seeley, four CLA alumni with careers in recruiting, to ask their advice for job seekers.
