Graduway, the company that is revolutionizing alumni networking, announced today an easier way for schools to encourage alumni to build their first LinkedIn profile.
Daniel Cohen, Co-founder of Graduway explains ‘'we know the first piece of career advice all schools offer to their graduating students and alumni is to build themselves a professional profile on-line using LinkedIn. Yet frustratingly we all know that too many have still not completed this first essential step.''
Cohen adds, ‘'As a result of Graduway's strategic relationship with LinkedIn, we are delighted to announce that as a standard all our alumni networking platforms will have a new feature enabling users who do not yet have a LinkedIn profile, to build one without even leaving the school's alumni platform. This makes it even easier to bring students and alumni up to this minimum standard.''
Graduway entered into a strategic relationship with LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network, in March 2013. Graduway powers alumni networking platforms across 14 countries and recently closed a round of seed funding through BTG Pactual, Gigi Levy and RSL Ventures.
