Alumni outreach is the ‘most ignored’ but ‘much needed’ activity!

Alumni are valuable constituents of any college or university. They are living testimonials of student success, and powerful inspiration to your current students. Continued outreach by the institution and vibrant participation by alumni will influence institutional policy making and directly help student success via career mentoring and employment opportunities. e2s Connect brings you productive campaign techniques to build lifelong relationships with your alumni.

Make alumni your institution’s most loyal supporters!

Mentoring
Mentoring
Mentoring, curricular or career related, is a big need for students, and alumni can play a big part in this effort. Students can register in the appropriate mentoring groups or communities. Organize mentoring events and get a 360 real-time view by community. Post updates to the group to ‘like’ and comment. Mentees may download reading material and their overall progress and action items are tracked via mentor notes.
Job Boards
Job Boards
Job Board is a smart platform for alumni to post jobs for the benefit of other alumni and newly graduating students. Job seekers search the job board by location, keyword or poster, and can get notifications whenever new jobs are posted. The "Apply Now" feature lets them easily submit their resume. A smart match enables the best fit for a job description. Alumni receive notifications, set reminders, make appointments etc., all via intuitive interfaces.
Fundraising CRM Software
Fundraising
Run campaigns through multiple channels for fundraising events, set up individual funds such as building fund, library fund etc., and receive funds from the alumni via the payment gateway on their mobile apps. Staff members track the status of giving, and this can also be made visible to the alumni. In fact, those institutions successfully tapping into their alumni network seem to have more than half the alumni giving back. Get a 360-view of the alumni and track engagement, giving, and their career status.
Alumni in Social Media
Alumni in Social Media
Social media networks such as LinkedIn and Twitter are natural haunt for alumni who are part of today's digital professional circles. e2s Connect brings alumni back into the institution to facilitate alumni participation, engagement, stewardship, and relationships with your institution – and ultimately developing alumni into lifelong supporters and advocates. Your students are obviously the greatest beneficiaries of such a network.

Empower alumni with mobile apps and portal for lifelong connections!

Like most of us, your alumni are undoubtedly spending much more time on their mobile devices compared to emails. You may feel challenged by this trend, wondering how you can effectively communicate and engage with your alumni in this era of mobile communications. Your alumni are also probably networking with one another on social media with little visibility to your institution. e2s Connect is guaranteed to change all that with one master stroke.

Peer networking is a major draw for your alumni to use institution-branded mobile apps!
