HAMMOND — The Southeastern Louisiana University Alumni Association has launched a networking platform to help Southeastern alumni connect with each other called Southeastern Connect, 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,” Biggs said. “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 resumés, conduct mock interviews, be guest speakers and offer internships or offer one-on-one mentoring.
The site offers users the ability to post 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.
