As a Sweet Briar student, you’ll have access to one of the most powerful alumnae networks anywhere. Spanning the country and the globe, Sweet Briar alumnae have made their mark in virtually every sector. They’re lawyers, doctors, teachers and scientists. They’re entrepreneurs, engineers and artists. Many are leaders in their fields and in their communities — and they’re eager to help you get there, too.
Networking is more than an email or a LinkedIn request. To make the most of this valuable resource, it’s important you understand how to identify and contact the right alumnae, and what to ask them when they answer your call. Begin by building relationships in your industry of choice, ask for new contacts, and gather as much information as you can. Remember, alumnae have volunteered to serve as a resource. They are not here to “give” you a job — although they just might!
