About the Alums category

Category specific to give alums a place to network with other alums and current students. Job notices or sharing opportunities is also permitted in this category.

Why should people use this category? What is it for?

This category is focused on our RIT alums. If you want to connect with other alums from the RIT FOSS community, this is a good place to discuss among alums.

Sharing employment opportunities for current students is also permitted in this category. Unless you received prior permission from Prof. Stephen Jacobs or FOSS@MAGIC staff, only alums are allowed to share employment opportunities.

How exactly is this different than the other categories we already have?

Discussion in this category is focused to alums. Discussion topics are left broad and open-ended. This category is also the only category where soliciting employment opportunities is permitted.

What should topics in this category generally contain?

  • Posting here is not limited to alums only
  • Content should be relevant to alums (e.g. subscribing to only this category via email is easy)

Consider these sample topic ideas:

  • Alums:
    • Announcing career updates
    • Planning informal meet-up opportunities
    • Sharing things you learned with the wider RIT FOSS community
  • Current students:
    • Ask alums out in industry some of your burning questions
    • Seek career advice / mentoring

These are only suggestions and are not limitations.
