A LinkedIn networking group exclusively for Kingston University alumni and current students.
The Ask Kingston Alumni (AKA) networking group on LinkedIn is a forum for Kingston students, past and present, to network or share knowledge and information across geographic locations and industries.
Members can post opportunities or ask for advice and offer insight into their career field. This is an exclusive and supportive environment in which members can learn from each other.
All students and alumni are welcome; we just ask that the group is respected and members adhere to its protocol.
Before joining please ensure that you have followed the membership guidelines and step-by-step process which includes useful tips on how to network effectively and professionally. It also covers how to use LinkedIn in a way that enhances your experience within the group.
If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To become a member of AKA on LinkedIn, there are a number of steps which you should complete either as one of our alumni, or one of our current students, in order to meet our criteria for joining and to make the most of this valuable opportunity.
All requests will receive an email confirmation once registration has been accepted and processed; this will usually be actioned within five working days.
However you fit into the Kingston family, you will quickly find positive benefits within this networking group: you can expect interaction across all groups, networking among those who are still studying, and those who are now in the workplace.
The group is exclusive to alumni and students who have requested to opt in, and is created for online networking only, all sharing and connections taking place solely within the forum, but do expect to find out about useful events going on, particularly at Kingston University.
Once you join you will be automatically connected to a substantial group of current students and alumni who are keen to share information about their fields and careers, or maybe provide referrals to associates, businesses or professional organisations. All members can post articles, ask questions and comment on group discussions.
We ask that the group is respected and members adhere to its protocol:
