LinkedIn Reminder

The English Department has created a special LinkedIn group just for current English majors and alumni of the English Department.  Since we announced this group to English alumni last semester, 520 individuals have joined!  We invite you to join this network.  If you’re on LinkedIn, you should have already received an invitation from LinkedIn, but if not, you can access the group by going to the LinkedIn site and then searching for “Villanova English group” (there are two groups; the other is for students from our graduate program).  At the group page, you can request to join.

The group provides an ideal opportunity for you to see the wide range of careers that alumni of the program have pursued, and it gives you a quick and convenient way to benefit from their professional knowledge and experience.  It will also give you another way to keep in touch with your former classmates once you have completed the degree.  The group offers the department a convenient way to post job listings that have been sent to us by those seeking to hire someone with the skills the English major cultivates.  It may also give us the opportunity to reach out to you when we are seeking an expert in a particular field to give an alumni talk or participate in an alumni panel here on campus.
