Everyone knows that employment data gives you incredible insight into your alumni. Getting that data as soon as possible is the key to increasing engagement and ultimately boosting fundraising.
Which alumni just got promoted to a C-suite or Senior Executive role? Who just took a new board seat? Who has a new volunteer position? Send a congratulatory note, make an ask when your alum is still on their promotional high or just reach out to people who might need your support and strengthen the bonds with your alumni.
You can also take advantage of our API integrations, to access your data directly in your database without ever worrying about importing!
WHY TRACK JOB CHANGES NOW
Getting notified about crucial career triggers helps Advancement & Engagement teams to reach out and say the right thing to the right person at the right time. Ultimately it helps you build stronger relationships with your alumni and increases their affinity with your institution.
With a job changes and career moves at record highs - especially for C-Suite and Senior Executive alumni - regular updates are critical. But updating an entire database every month isn't feasible so capturing MONTHLY JOB CHANGES are ideal!
Thousands of users have already taken advantage of our monthly job changes and with summer here, most of our partner institutions are planning on using the quiet months ahead to use the data to its fullest potential.
"We hear it all the time - employment updates are the ideal amount of information. These bite-sized pieces of the newest data available are so easy to work with. I've had schools analyze, import, and actually use the data in a matter of hours. It’s important to not overthink it!"

HOW IT WORKS
Once you've subscribed to our FREE job changes, just sit back, relax and wait.
Every month, we'll send you a list of alumni who have recently been promoted, moved companies, taken on a new board seat or volunteer position or made any other career change.
LiveAlumni customers also get this data added directly into their account. It can be found and exported easily using the Recent Job Changes report.
CALCULATE YOUR ROI
So what is all this data worth? How can you calculate an ROI? Here are some numbers to consider.
On average, about 10% of alumni change jobs every year. That means, if you have 100,000 alumni, approximately 10,000 of them will change jobs throughout the year. Then about 10% of those job changes will involve C-level or Senior Executive alumni.
Reach out to those 1000 people with the right message at the right moment, and you'll get enough positive responses to mark at least 25% of them as major gift prospects.
Taking into account the giving capacity for the roles in question, you can, with very little effort, create a major gift pipeline of $3, 500, 000!

Find yourself wondering what you're supposed to do with the data once you've got your hands on it? We have some tried and tested tips shared by actual LiveAlumni users from Colleges and Universities around the world.
UPDATE YOUR CRM OR DATABASE
With alumni data changing faster than ever, chances are you don't have this data in your database. So the job for Advancement teams is to check the data you do have and import what you don't.
ASSIGN HIGH-LEVEL TITLES
If your Prospect Research team finds a new high-earning title in your updates, make sure you assign them a gift officer right away! Alumni are 4x more likely to donate when they're on a “promotional high”.
Take the time to contact and congratulate alumni that have recently been promoted. For Alumni Relations, this is an ideal first point of contact and will allow a relationship to develop organically.
IDENTIFY POTENTIAL ALLIES
Reach out to newly promoted alumni because it's when they're most likely want to support students at their alma matter. For Careers Services, it's a great way to get a foot in the door with employers for internships, interviews, shadowing programs etc.
SHARE DATA WITH OTHER TEAMS
Sharing monthly updates with other departments will only increase your data’s potential because the triggers can help so many teams in so many ways. Take a few minutes to contact team leaders from other departments and ask them to do the same.

LiveAlumni will automatically add updated profiles to Live Reports. If you want to be notified when alumni from your reports have updated their information, you can choose to get email notifications. That way you'll never miss a critical career change.
