One of the recent accomplishments of the School’s Alumni Board of Governors has been the creation and launch of a networking platform called AlumniFire. Board President Miriam Connolly describes how AlumniFire came to be under her leadership, and what it is doing:
“We launched the AlumniFire platform back in March 2020. The Board of Governors had been tasked with thinking about big areas and big issues — in particular, connecting as a community and ways we could support one another, as we have a huge alumni base around the country and the world. One of our amazing board members proposed a platform like LinkedIn, but free.
“With great collaboration, AlumniFire was formed. It continues to grow and provide great networking opportunities for alumni. You can find someone to review your resume, to give you an informational interview, someone who works at the type of job you would like to have or who works at a place you are considering applying to. I have used AlumniFire myself to help students with field placements. We are all super excited about the platform and very proud of it.”
