Connect with LGS Alumni

LGS alumni have diverse careers both within the professoriate and beyond. We are fortunate to have alumni who are deeply engaged with career development of our current students. Below are some ways you can connect with those who have come before you in the Laney Graduate School. 


Emory Connects  

EmoryConnects is a professional networking platform like LinkedIn created specifically for the Emory community. This tool is a great way to start building a professional network. EmoryConnects users can connect with Emory alumni by searching degree, location, industry, company, and availability. Users can offer and receive career guidance, find nearby professionals in fields of interest, and join exclusive industry-based networking groups. Access EmoryConnects here. 

Laney Alumni Career Panel 

The Laney Alumni Career Panel Discussion Series connects students with distinguished alumni who have chosen diverse career paths. At these events, alumni from a variety of fields return to Emory to network with our students and discuss their career paths and the unique ways that they have used their graduate training to succeed in positions that current students may never have considered. Learn more here.  

Ask an Emory Alum 

Ask an Emory Alum is a tool that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to match questions from students/alumni with alumni who have relevant experience. Users can submit a question via a short form (no profile needed), and we’ll match it with the most appropriate, available alums who can give you an answer that will come straight to your inbox.   

Anyone in the Emory community can ask a question! We’ve carefully selected 25k alumni for the pool of potential advisors and will rotate this 25k pool biannually. Ask an Emory Alum will connect you with the best alum who can help you with advice and introductions. You ask, they answer. Learn more here.
