CONNECT MORE

...with your Emory community

Emory alumni tend to gravitate to one another. They meet up in the boardrooms, leadership gatherings, and on the sidelines of their kids’ soccer fields. The network is 156,000 alumni strong and an Emory degree gives entrée to resources, guidance, and mentorship, as well opportunities to give back to the Emory community.

But, we’ve gone one step further. We’ve created a virtual network, Emory Connects, just for you. Exclusive to the Emory community, it’s a place to connect, share ideas, give guidance, and search for it. We hope you will join.

In the meantime, EmoryWire talked to a few alumni about how they have made the most of their own Emory connections.

Munir Meghjani 08Ox 10C skipped to the front of the line when interviewing for jobs. In the nine years he’s been out of school, he’s had eight jobs. Seven have been through Emory connections.


Dolly Meese 05MBA knows that when she invites Emory scholars into her office for a visit, they will be the ones to impact their community on both a local and global scale.


Mary Ellen Grant 04B landed her first tech job from an Emory posting. Now she pays that forward to other job seeking alumni.


Mentorship is a two-way street. Zilu Wang 21B was uncertain about her career path, and sought insight from Allison Hasday 09C, an insurance consultant. As Allison shared her thoughts, she benefited from Zilu’s perspective.


Vickie Hunter 06Ox 08C got a paid internship from the Emory Career Board. She did such strong work, that the company asked her to recommend a replacement and then continued hiring Emory students for the foreseeable future.


“The Masterminds,” as Michael Curry Jr 02B and six Alpha Phi Alpha Emory Mu Alpha chapter brothers call themselves, have met twice a month for more than a decade, to hold each other accountable to their professional goals.

“We’ve also counseled or coached a number of Emory alumni along the way,” says Curry, a member of the 2019 Class of Forty Under 40. “Emory taught us that the sky really is the limit.”


"I have enjoyed the many students who have come to my courtroom to spend the day, giving them an opportunity to see firsthand a day in the life of a criminal trial judge,” says Judge Robert Kirsch 88C of New Jersey Superior Court, a longterm host for Emory’s Career Discovery Days. “I loved my time at Emory, and feel very indebted to the school and so it is with great pleasure that I give back.”
