According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 70% of all jobs are found through networking.

One of the most powerful networking resources available is LinkedIn. Wellesley’s alumnae network is one of the most powerful and valuable women’s networks that exists. For this reason, the Center for Work and Service has partnered with the Wellesley College Alumnae Association to launch the next generation of the Wellesley Alumnae Network on LinkedIn. This LinkedIn group provides a robust forum for actively connecting and engaging with alumnae in every field and sector and from all over the globe.
