Alumni factor for employability

International Edu News

Alumni networks are less helpful for a graduate’s success in the job market than previously thought, a survey by Gallup has found. Institutions need to invest more resources into alumni networks with an employability focus. The analysis also found some minor, but statistically significant differences in how useful graduates perceived their alumni networks to be: those graduating from an elite institution perceived them as more helpful than their peers from lower-ranked universities. Gallup research suggests that making an alumni network useful takes effort and intentionality. Most alumni networks are not actively engaged in supporting fellow alumni in the job market. This means that institutions need to invest in staffing, volunteer management and effective data management, monitoring alumni careers. Generation Z expects to graduate into a global network, and the research into Global Alumni Relations Management in the U.S. showed that it’s critical that alumni relations strategic plans align with the institutions’ longer-range strategic objectives focusing on global employability outcomes.
