GSLIS students and alumni may utilize the GSLIS Alumni-Student Connect to get in touch with friends, find a mentor or assist with job searches. Matches are made from requests using the following criteria:
1. Your intention and motivation for this connection.
a. GSLIS Alumni-Student Connect is not a tool intended to directly obtain jobs, rather, connections are meant to cultivate relationships with peers in your area of interest.
2. A single city around which you would like us to search, and the maximum number of miles surrounding your chosen city.
a. Please keep in mind that some cities offer higher concentrations of alumni than others and adjust your preferred search radius accordingly.
3. The type of organization in which you would like to work/seek more information.
4. The type of work you are interested in.
The Advancement and Alumni Relations Office works to provide matches as close to your request as possible. Best matches are created when your request provide as much detail as possible, while keeping in mind that high concentrations of alumni and broad search criteria make optimum matches more difficult.
The Advancement and Alumni Relations Office will process requests within 2 weeks of receipt. Requestors will be notified when the request has been completed and given instruction on how to proceed.
If you have questions on how to best utilize the Alumni-Connect service or about the most helpful information to share when making a request, please contact Roy Brooks.
