HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University Alumni Association has officially launched an app for its Southeastern Connect platform, a network that helps members connect, give back, explore career opportunities and get ahead, said Executive Director of Alumni Relations Michelle Biggs. Instructions to download the app are available on the Alumni Association website at southeastern.edu/alumni.
“Southeastern Connect is an online community that allows our alumni to connect with each other and offer/find mentorships, internships, and jobs,” said Biggs. “Alumni register on the site, set up a profile, and can indicate that they are willing to help in a variety of ways.”
Southeastern alumni can elect to offer career advice, review resumes, conduct mock interviews, be guest speakers, offer internships or offer one-on-one mentoring.
“By creating a free account, alumni, faculty, staff and upper class students can unlock an online business directory featuring alumni owned businesses; a job board highlighting jobs and internships available in your area; access to a calendar of upcoming events and learning opportunities; and a diverse, growing community of members looking to connect with other alumni,” Biggs explained.
The site offers users the ability to post and/or search for jobs and connect with others in groups, such as alumni association chapters, fraternity/sorority alumni, and industry specific groups. There is also an event feature, Biggs said, where alumni can obtain information on chapter events and share photographs and updates on their various activities.
“Help us grow Southeastern Connect into a dynamic social network for the entire Lion Nation,” Biggs said. “Joining takes less time than making a cup of coffee, and personalizing your account is easy. Download the app now and discover that all networks are not the same.”
