Shimer Alumni Association President Steve Zolno on how to connect with fellow alumni.
For recent grads – and not so recent – there are a couple of ways that you can receive support for your career path and keep in touch with a growing number of alumni.
First, we have a list of mentors which includes many alumni who have successful careers and are more than happy to share information about how to pursue a path in your chosen field, or even how to learn more about fields that you might want to consider. Please contact Steve at firstname.lastname@example.org to join our Mentor List or to receive a copy.
There is also the LinkedIn Shimer College Alumni & Friends group to join and network within.
You also should know about our new and expanding Shimer Alumni Mutual Aid Group on Facebook. If you just punch in that title, or click the link, you can find more information about mentors and receive help with filling out resumes. There also is a growing group of alumni who are willing to provide a place on a couch for those who are traveling and want a place to stay or hang out with other Shimer folks.
Please let me know if you use these services and how they work for you so we can continue to expand and improve them
