Alumni connections are one of the best sources of relevant referrals.
It’s important to first add your college or graduate school to your profile so other alumni can find you. Many times prospects will place a high value on individuals with a shared experience or background.
To search for alumni, enter your school’s name in the search bar. Go to the school’s LinkedIn page and click the “See alumni” box. LinkedIn will return the results, and let you narrow them down by dates attended, current city, and employer.
You can search for alumni from your alma mater, or identify a commonality like educational background among your top clients and search that school’s alumni to find your next best prospect.
