AFLSE Careers/Networking Group and Career Resources
Summertime can be a transition period for many employees. AFLSE has resources to help alumni employers and job seekers.
Following are career resources available from AFLSE and LSE:
Participate in the AFLSE Careers/Networking Group
- Join the Careers/Networking special interest group: Alumni interested in receiving regular job announcements and networking opportunities, please join this group by logging into AFLSE, going to the group page at http://www.aflse.org/article.html?aid=656 and selecting the join group option.
- Send in Job Postings: The Careers/Networking group relies on alumni to provide notice of available job opportunities in their companies and communities. If your company is looking to hire, please send job description/application information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Serve as a career contact for your company/industry: We are also looking to put together a listing of volunteer AFLSE members who are willing to assist alumni seeking positions in their companies. If you are interested in serving as a career/networking point of contact for your company (or a company that you previously worked at but still have contact with) you should email email@example.com with your name, the name of your company, your email address, and your company's careers website if available.
Participate in the LSE mentoring program
The LSE's mentoring program is a unique forum where alumni mentors and mentees can connect. The program provides recent graduates and seasoned alumni an opportunity to network and learn from the experience of a mentor base, across various industry sectors.
