Show Notes: this episode I talk with John Hill of the Michigan State Alumni Association. John is responsible for directing the Alumni Career Services office at MSU and is a leader in the field.

We talk about how John and his team took a passive, you-come-to-us type program and turned it into program delivery machine. In addition, he explains the Life stage model to Alumni Career Services and how that is a generator of alumni giving. Finally he talks about how LinkedIn and Twitter are integral components to their strategy.

I spent some time with John last spring and was really impressed with how well he was using LinkedIn. I'm sure his approach is even more sophisticated now. Thanks for sharing this.
