The secret is out for job-searching millennials. This past quarter LinkedIn, announced that students and recent graduates are their fastest growing demographic.
For advancement pros looking to give these recent grads a lift, today we are excited to introduce our LinkedIn Alumni Grader. This project, initially kicked off during a company-wide hack-a-thon, aims to highlight the higher ed communities who are doing an excellent job of staying connected on LinkedIn.
For the first version of our grader, we derived results from a simple equation. We took the number of members in an institution’s largest LinkedIn Group and divided that number by the number of alums that institution has on LinkedIn. For example, The University of Notre Dame has 55,470 members on LinkedIn and 31,506 members in their LinkedIn Group… a 57% adoption rate. Not too shabby!
See how your college or university stacks up here and let us know what you think.
