HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University Alumni Association has officially
launched a networking platform to help Southeastern alumni connect with each other.
Called Southastern Connect, the network helps members connect, give back, expand and
get ahead, said Executive Director of Alumni Relations Michelle Biggs.
“Southeastern Connect is an online community that will allow 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.”
Biggs said alumni can elect to offer career advice, review resumes, conduct mock interviews, be guest speakers, offer internships or offer one-on-one mentoring.
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.
“This is just the first step in expanded programming that will focus on meaningful engagement and career development offerings for our Southeastern alumni,” Biggs said.
“Be one of the first to join Southeastern Connect – it takes less than two minutes. Help us grow Southeastern Connect into a dynamic social network for the entire Lion Nation.”
