Reaching out to alumni who have started a new position is a quick and easy way to boost start your relationship. What better way to get your foot in the door than sending a quick note to congratulate your alum on their new position? Alumni will feel seen, appreciated, and won't feel like there is a hidden ask (even if there is one coming in the future).
With our complimentary Monthly Job Changes, LiveAlumni makes it easy to identify alumni who have started a new position and reach out!
Pro Tip: Any position that was started within the past year may qualify as 'recent'! Alumni don't expect you to reach out on the day of their new position - so, don't worry about being a few months behind. You're still worlds ahead of everyone else!
