With 85% of jobs today found through network connections, it’s more important than ever to include alums in the student experience from day 1, whether that day is in upper school, community college, or a four-year college/university. It’s especially important to ensure that any effort include a laser focus on students from underserved backgrounds with more limited access to social capital.
