New Internet for Alumni
by Kalamalama staff
Taking a major leap into cyberspace, HPU’s Office
of Alumni Relations recently unveiled a new Internet connection
that will include special services and features designed to
keep its worldwide alumni community connected.
Across the country, universities have increasingly
been turning to the Internet as a means to interact with their
alumni. The HPU Alumni Global Network is the first and only
university Web site of its kind in Hawai‘i to offer an online
community for alumni.
Features of the service include lifetime e-mail
account, personal pals list, Web postcards, a career service
center to post resumes, an alumni directory, and event listings,
The Alumni Global Network not only benefits HPU
alumni and contacts, it functions as a valuable instrument for
local, national, and international employers. Offered at no
charge to users, companies throughout the world can announce
job openings and view HPU alumni resumes matched by category
or keyword. Employers also have the option to update and extend
job postings at their convenience.
“It is exciting that alumni and corporations can
both benefit through career networking with the HPU Alumni Career
Center,” says Jenn Baker, assistant vice president and asset
manager of GE Capital Real Estate.
Internet users can access the site directly at
www.alumni.hpu.edu or find the alumni link on the HPU Web site
at www.hpu.edu. Official launch of the HPU Alumni Global Network
was August 22 in the HPU Media Technology Center on Fort Street
