I was looking at joining the UM Alumni Association and wanted to get everyone's take on whether they've felt it's been useful or not useful for networking purposes. Certainly Alumni sports-based events are a good way just to meet and connect with othe Alums, but have any of you taken advantage specifically of the career-help offerings?
I ask because I'm in NYC as an actor (UM grad in Aerospace Engineering, haha) and with the 18,000 UM alums here, the Alumni Assoc could be a great way for like-minded people to meet in a notoriously difficult career and city.
Any general advice on the Alumni Assoc career angle and/or NYC specifically would be greatly appreciated!
It would be a fantastic way to work with and help out other UM Alums in this great city. Go Blue!
