Besides your current career information, we recommend including your volunteer roles, your extracurriculars as a student at Cornell, your interests outside of work, and more! Students and alumni can better connect with you based on what you share. Also, make sure to add a picture, as you’re more likely to receive connections with one.
Yes! You can fully customize your preferences and profile to meet your volunteering goals, schedule needs, and privacy preferences. You can even adjust your availability based on your current situation. Set these during sign-up and edit them at any time.
CUeLINKs is a private platform just for Cornellians. It goes beyond career connections and allows for sharing life experiences, knowledge, and ideas, all with the base of a Cornell education. Plus, you can schedule and have meetings directly on the platform. Read more.
No. CUeLINKs allows students to reach out to alumni when they are ready to connect. Alumni can reach out to other alumni within the platform.
Job Connections is a job feed that pulls roles in from other online sources like LinkedIn and Handshake*. If a member that’s completed signup is connected to a job online, it appears in the list along with the associated alumni name and picture. Alumni can still post jobs directly (recommended for jobs for alumni that are 5+ years out. Post jobs on Handshake for students and alumni 0-5 years out). You can hide yourself from appearing in the jobs feed in your privacy settings.
*Handshake jobs and directly-posted jobs only for now.
To add a business, click on the “Resources” tab at the top of the page. Select Business Directory in the drop-down menu. Then,click on the "Create Resource" button on the right-hand side. In the form that appears, go to Create New Post and choose Business Listing from the dropdown menu. Fill in the form (you’ll be asked for a logo and cover photo, so have that handy!) and submit. An admin will approve your listing within 3 - 5 business days.
How you answer questions while building your profile impacts what appears (hobbies, passions, areas of study, industries of interest) in Career Paths. Most data come from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET) by the U.S. Dept of Labor/Employment. PeopleGrove (our platform provider), after extensive research, also adds careers to keep the suggestions up to date.
“What sets CUeLINKS apart from other networking platforms such as LinkedIn is that Cornell alumni have opted into the platform to support current Cornell students. The connections tend to be more personal for that reason. For students, no matter where you are in your career search, Cornell alumni are willing to help you out. As for alumni, there will always be students looking for guidance and navigation and you could be the answer to their confusion.”
From offering career advice, to having meaningful life-after-Cornell discussions, joining CUeLINKs pays-it-forward to the next generation. Plus, grow your own Big Red network by linking up with other alumni.
