Alumni Networks Less Helpful Than Advertised

"Gallup asked 5,100 graduates just how helpful these undergraduate alumni networks have been in their careers thus far. Unfortunately, just 9% of graduates reported their alumni network has been very helpful or helpful to them in the job market. More than twice as many graduates (22%) report it has been very unhelpful or unhelpful. The vast majority of graduates (69%) report it was neither helpful nor unhelpful -- which means alumni networks are a non-factor for many graduates in the job market."
