Staying connected is easy to do when with multiple alumni receptions and events held annually through the College of Architecture and Design and the University of Tennessee.
UT has developed several devices to help alumni connect with fellow alums in their fields, including a job search tool informing alumni about openings listing fellow UT alumni as contacts, and an online database with information about alumni in various career fields; conversely, UT alums looking to hire can use these sites to find any fellow Vols who fit their desired candidate profile. In addition, the Alumni Association offers regional career fairs, industry-specific networking events, and career-counseling services.
To find fellow alumni in your area, keep up to date with the latest reunions and other alumni events, and find out how you can contribute to ensuring future Vols have the best academic and career resources, visit volsconnect.com.
