Be a career champion for Bryant students

Ferrante Student Alumni NetworkingAlumni are one of the University’s greatest resources. Bryant’s Office of Alumni Relations, in conjunction with the Amica Center for Career Education staff, invites you to share your knowledge and career expertise with students as part of the Alumni/Student Career Link. This online database has recently been merged with the online Alumni Community, making it a single point of access for alumni and students.

Choose your level of involvement

Let us know if you are willing to speak with students by activating your online alumni record and answering a few basic questions about how you are willing to interact. For instance, you can agree to share career information by phone, meet with a student for an informational interview, or talk about specific internships or job shadowing opportunities at your company.

To get started, you will need to register for Bryant Online, our secure database of all 40,000+ alumni. Register in January 2013 so that you will be included in the spring advice/recruitment process for graduating seniors.

Once registered, connect through social media

Contact the Office of Alumni Relations for your Banner ID, which is one step in the secure sign-in process. After you register, you can connect your profile to LinkedIn or Facebook for one-step activation. Once online, you can update your own information, search for classmates, and answer a few simple questions in the Alumni Career Link tab.  Email us at alumni@bryant.edu for your ID number and step-by-step instructions.

Share your experience in person this month

Speaking to students in person is gratifying. Each year during the students’ winter break, Alumni Relations teams up with the Amica Career Center to host informal events where students talk to alumni one-on-one about their fields. On January 9 in New York CityJanuary 15 in Hartford, and January 17 in Boston, students and alumni will have the chance to connect after alumni-only networking with hearty hors d’oeuvres. Find out what it's like to interact with our students by registering for one of these events. Your experience is valued.
