How to Stay Connected With Other Certificate Alumni on LinkedIn

Are you looking for a place to network with fellow certificate alumni who share similar experiences, goals and skills? Whether it’s been one month or 10 years since you graduated, it’s never too late to connect or reconnect with other graduates from your alma matter, area of study or even your specific program. Plus, who you know can be as important as what you know, making other alums a powerful and valuable resource.

Our private alumni group for all certificate graduates boasts more than 4,000 members, with alumni working in various fields around the Pacific Northwest and beyond. This group is your place to connect with other grads, stay in the know about upcoming events and programming and share job opportunities.

There are also separate LinkedIn groups for specific areas of study and certificate programs so you can engage with like-minded peers who share your unique experiences. Talk shop, share ideas and challenges, network with key community members, get career advice, collaborate and build relationships.
