Michigan Alumni Career - How to Use LinkedIn


LinkedIn does more than connect you to recruiters. It’s a powerful resource to connect you with professional U-M alumni. Here are the different ways you can make LinkedIn work for you:

Complete Your Profile

  • Tag the University of Michigan so you get found by fellow alumni and interested employers
  • Include a photo so they take a second look

Search the U-M LinkedIn Alumni Tool

  • Find alumni by grad year, company, industry, location, skill set, and area of study
  • Identify top employers, skill sets of alumni with desired career paths, and more

Official Alumni Association LinkedIn Group

  • Search the group for alumni found using the alumni tool and direct message them — you don’t need a premium account for direct messaging in this group
  • Post career questions or articles of interest in your industry to get advice and make connections

Alumni Association LinkedIn Page

  • Learn about events and networking opportunities
