How Writers Can Use the LinkedIn Alumni Tool

LinkedIn has unveiled a new Alumni tool that will help you find old classmates and discover literary alumni living in your city.

It is a powerful tool for publishing professionals. You can actually narrow your search by field of study, finding fellow creative writing students, English majors or library science graduates around the world.

Social Times has more: “LinkedIn has created an Alumni tool for mapping your college connections that may answer the question, where are they now? The tool shows where your fellow graduates live, which companies they work for, what they studied in school, what types of jobs they have now and what their skills are.”
