How to Stay Involved
Many of our graduates choose to stay involved with our program after graduation, meeting other alumni, and helping our current students through:
- social learning events
- job placement
- professional networking
- experience through real-world projects
Our alumni network is growing on a yearly basis. Staying involved helps the next generation of CICS master’s candidates as well as building and reinforcing your own professional network among the alumni who are working throughout the world.
The relationships built in the Center for Information and Communication Sciences continue for a lifetime.
CICS Benefits for Alumni
CICS continues to interact with alumni, and we are always glad to hear from you. Here are some ways the Center continues to benefit alumni:
- immediate job openings—We communicate job opportunities that are specifically for alumni.
- career advancement—Many professional opportunities are offered to university graduates two years out and five years out. We keep alumni apprised of these further career-stage opportunities.
- recruitment—We encourage alumni to post job openings for current CICS students. Some companies offer incentives for employees who bring in new employees, and this is a way to harvest those incentives.
