Are you an expert in your field and want to share what you've learned along the way with a fellow alum on his/her/their way up? OR are you thinking of switching jobs or careers and want advice on how best to position yourself? Sign up here and we'll connect you with a fellow UHS alum who can benefit from knowing you on a professional basis.
UHS Alumni on LinkedIn
First, add "San Francisco University High School" to the education section of your LinkedIn profile. Important: our logo must show! If you don't see our logo, delete University and add it back. Including your grad year optional.
Next, join over 1,300 alumni and become a member of our private LinkedIn networking group. You can use this group to introduce yourself to a fellow alum or ask Marianna Stark, director of alumni engagement and giving, to facilitate the introduction on your behalf. Once you've requested permission to join (formalities!), you can make announcements, start a discussion, or post a job opening with your company. Click here to join our LinkedIn group.
Learn How to Rock Your Profile on LinkedIn
Want to give your LinkedIn profile a refresh? We happen to have an expert in the family: Aaron Fung '00, talent brand consultant and professional storyteller with LinkedIn, who hosted a one-hour "Rock Your Profile" interactive seminar over videoconference for our community earlier this year. Rock Your Profile sessions are designed to help people put their best professional foot forward to connect with peers, find a new job, or introduce themselves to a new organization. CLICK HERE to watch the seminar on our YouTube station.
Publicize an Internship or Job
Do you know of an internship that we can share with UHS alumni or current students? Send an email with the details to UHS.firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post it on our Alumni Classifieds page.
Build Your Résumé
We've developed some DIY resources (rules for résumé-building and an example of a résumé) so high school students can create a first draft on their own—then attend a clinic for further refinement. This simple set of instructions gives advice on how to write a one-pager résumé in a professional format, with tips on how to include volunteer, academic, and all types of work experience.
