New Media launches online alumni network
The New Media program has launched a special Slack team just for its alumni (and seniors). Any current seniors or former new media majors can join in to share notes on job opportunities, technical advice, and other new media news.
New Media alumni work in so many fields that it can be overwhelming for a major to decide what to do after graduation. This private, online forum offers the counsel of alumni who’ve graduated recently as well as leaders from industries as education, e-commerce, design, and music.
The NMD Alumni Slack workplace already boasts 80 members who’ve contributed almost 700 messages in 11 channels with themes like #mentors, #film-and-video, and #opportunities. This private platform complements the New Media program’s public social media such as Facebook , Twitter , and Instagram.
