Alumni engagement is a connection between an institution and its alumni. It is how institutes embrace and nurture relationships with previous students or alumni to create a professional network. But due to the networking landscape and communications shifts, maintaining a perfect relationship has become challenging these days. Some students are not curious about engaging with their institutes after graduation. The major reason behind it is the late implementation of strategies by institutions.
USBM intends to create a strong network to connect its recent and existing graduates with established professionals in numerous industries that would help existing and pass out students pursue career opportunities and career changes respectively. This association aims at offering career fairs, events, interactions and guidance from its Alumnus to the fresh batch of graduates on a continuous basis.

Why are Alumni Important to USBM?

Build a mutual relationship: Maintaining good relationships with alumni over time is crucial to the success of students as well as institutions. Alumni serve many valuable roles, such as helping to build and grow an institution’s brand through word-of-mouth marketing. For instance, positive posts on social media can create buzz and increase application rates. Colleges know the alumni importance and always rely on alumni to provide mentoring, internships, and career opportunities to students.

 Alumni contributions: Alumni can help students get placed at their respective organizations.  Alumni can play an active role in voluntary programs like mentoring students in their areas of expertise. They could also play a significant role in contributing scholarships to deserving students. After graduation, it can be challenging to find a good career opportunity for students. Institutes can build a stronger bond with their graduates with the help of their alumni to guide graduates in receiving proper acknowledgment for their abilities. This shows that the relationship is based on caring and affection.

 Get Involved: Alumni get involved with the institution and the students and help them in their career development. The mission of Career Development is to connect students to their futures, help them explore career paths, participate in research and internships, and gain the skills necessary to succeed. Alumni work with students from their first year onwards and also provide help to navigate their career trajectory. Such a community of students, alumni, and employers facilitates meaningful connections, fosters relationships, and provides comprehensive career development by merging career services and alumni services. Alumni are excited to invite students to be part of achieving this mission.

 Career Conversations: Career conversation is an opportunity for alumni and friends to offer career advice to a small group of prospective and current students. These events are meant to be small networking sessions designed to offer students the chance to get answers to their most pressing questions about a specific career field.

Alumni contribution to social media: The importance of alumni engagement is huge and social media is a critical tool, especially for new graduates who spend hours on such platforms. Building long-term relationships with students requires continued engagement beyond graduation. An effective social media strategy and high-quality content are two must-haves for staying engaged with these students after graduation.

Helps in Internships and Campus Placement: If a company offers full-time or internship positions and is interested in employing students, alumni encourage students by posting available positions, their jobs, and internships on their social media. Alumni can use social media to assist students in finding the greatest job options that will improve their career prospects. This is the most beneficial interaction between a college, its alumni, and graduating students.

Through Career Counselling, Alumni are aiming to promote campus recruitment for students seeking appropriate placement in private and public sector undertakings, industries, and research/academic institutes. The Alumni network contacts a wide number of potential employers for placement, and these firms and institutions are encouraged to come to the institution for campus recruitment.

Guidance for Higher Studies: Alumni are also trying to provide extensive career assistance at Career Counseling to help students gain admission to prestigious institutes for higher studies in specialized fields.
