How do I use The Pride?
As a student, you can utilize The Pride in a number of ways:
- Set up a conversation with alumni mentors.
- Ask career-related questions anonymously on the discussion forum.
- Explore groups: Join alumni and students from similar LMU affinities or interests to learn about industry trends, networking tips and events, resources, and much more.
What makes a successful user of The Pride?
- Be flexible: if one alumnus is not available for messaging, there are many more alumni users to connect with!
- Be the first to reach out: introduce yourself and propose a time for a meeting or a phone call
- Don’t ask for a job*: make sure you’re asking for advice and guidance, not for a job or internship.
- Don’t forget to say thank you!
*Please DO NOT ask alumni mentors for a job or internship. The Pride is about building your professional network, developing your professional and communication skills, exploring areas of interest, gaining exposure to career options, and connecting your academics and career. It is not a direct resource for finding a job or internship, though it can often help with this down the road.
