Why should I connect my LinkedIn account?
The alumni network allows you to connect with other alumni using LinkedIn. Being connected via LinkedIn also enhances some of the network’s built-in features, like Professionals to Know and other filtering options. Once you are logged in, you can view information that alumni have chosen to include on their personal LinkedIn profiles along with the number of connections you have in common. You can directly connect with other McDonogh alumni by clicking the yellow LinkedIn button to add or invite alumni to LinkedIn. Any information that is provided by LinkedIn will appear on the profile screen with the LinkedIn icon to the right. Don’t forget to list McDonogh in your education information and to connect with our McDonogh Alumni LinkedIn Group.

How do I connect my LinkedIn?
You can log in using your LinkedIn credentials, which will automatically connect your LinkedIn account to your profile.

If you are willing to become a mentor to a current student or young alumnus/a, log in to the desktop version or the app, go to the Settings menu, and select the option to become a mentor.
