Tap the UST Network
Have you ever heard someone say, “Tommies are EVERYWHERE” and then wondered how to find other Tommies that can help you? They're out there, and the UST Alumni Association provides several ways for you to find other UST professionals in your field.
Social Media
Many (as of September 2014, that means more than 43,000) UST alumni profiles can be found on LinkedIn. The Alumni Association promotes two different LinkedIn groups specifically for UST alumni.
Alumni Networking Center on The Quad
Log in to find alumni in your field who have updated their Professional Profile to indicate a willingness to interact professionally. You can also post a job, or post your resume.   

This site (hosted by the Career Development Center) lists job openings and employer profiles, and offers a way for you to submit your resume and application directly to the hiring employer. Many UST alumni use this site to post positions that are available at their place of employment. Request an alumni account.
Networking Events and Volunteer Opportunities
There are many events and programs hosted by the Alumni Association for the purpose of creating networking opportunities. Connect with one that works for you.
