WEBINAR DESCRIPTION: With almost 300,000 alumni at the University of Georgia (UGA), it can be difficult to serve all career-related needs – especially with a one-person office. While we cannot reach every alumnus, we can provide quality services and programming to engage our local alumni and those living all over the world. With the combination of in-person events and appointments, coupled with strategic virtual services, your alumni will gain the resources and tools to find meaningful work and grow as a professional. With some smart effort, you can learn to serve many hundreds of alumni each year through in-person and virtual counseling appointments and by collaborating with campus partners. Let me show you how.
At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Identify best practices to best meet the needs of your alumni audience
- Brainstorm collaborations with both the local community and campus partners
- Develop opportunities to engage alumni through webinars and other virtual networking events
