Would you ignore a list of contact information for national and global business leaders, most in influential positions and willing to network with you to help you advance your career? Of course not! So don’t ignore the potential in your eMBA alumni directory!
When you graduate from a business school with an eMBA, that directory of graduates is worth more than gold. Every business leader on that list is already connected to you, and is a valuable potential network connection.
Your eMBA degree is a membership to a very exclusive club that takes enormous expense and effort to join, and the fellow members of that club are usually willing to share their expertise and influence with each other and with you.
Put all the potential of that directory to work for you in person and on social media. Invite local alumni to your networking events, connect via LinkedIn and mention you are a fellow alumnus, and reach out to alumni who work in organizations you’re interested in for advice and support. In return, be sure to pay it forward and BE a good mentor and network connection for future graduates in years to come.
Your B-school alumni directory is a great tool for networking and finding mentors ahead of you on the career path you’re planning. Put this great tool to use today!
