Career Resources: Utilizing LinkedIn

Join the City Year Alumni Association on LinkedIn

  • Request access to the City Year Alumni Association group on LinkedIn and start building connections with more than 5,000 alumni. 

  • Pro Tip:  Send a LinkedIn request to Sean McDevitt, City Year's Senior Director, Career Development, and Laura Kazanovicz, City Year's National Alumni Director.  Once connected, you can search Sean's or Laura's connections and utilize filters to identify City Year alums by selecting “City Year” under “Past Companies” and fit specific criteria to help you narrow your search such as the city where live where you live (or want to live), industries and organizations you are interested in, affiliated with colleges or graduate schools you are applying to, among other search criteria.  Check out the resource guides below for guidance in making connections to the alumni community.
