  • School of Law Alumni LinkedIn Group

    Networking is the key to finding a job and it's no secret that LinkedIn is the top professional networking site in the world, with more than 135 million members worldwide. Now Western New England University School of Law alumni have their own LinkedIn group with more than 1,100 members, thanks to the efforts of Bruce J. Cheriff L'86, managing partner at the law firm of Cheriff & Fink, P.C.

    LinkedIn is fertile ground for job seekers because of its capacity to exponentially expand their networks in a short amount of time. Also, the service is free. Users create their own profiles of professional qualifications on LinkedIn and then they can then find colleagues, classmates, clients, and candidates.  They can also post job listings and seek business opportunities.
