Student and Alumni Outreach Committee: Bringing new YPs to TC

As the Traverse City Young Professionals group continues growing, we're building up our committees and expanding our reach in the community. One group that really takes this to heart is the Student and Alumni Outreach Committee. These great folks are welcoming and recruiting future YP generations to Traverse City as well as helping to connect homegrown talent to local employers. Interested in learning more about what they do? Read on to find out!

On Thursday, March 6th, a few members of the TCYP Student & Alumni Outreach Team attended the Annual NMC Career Fair at the Hagerty Center. Numerous attendees inquired about the TCYPs. It was good exposure and a great way to let job seekers know how we could help them network in their respective fields. Since the job fair was not limited to patrons under 40, they were also able to promote the TC Chamber, the networking opportunities offered by the Chamber and the job portal on the Chamber website.

The YP Student & Alumni Outreach Program connects with both prospective graduates and current Young Professionals in the area. Colleges and universities can use this program to help provide education to potential graduates on the opportunities Traverse City has to offer. The program is also designed to continue the college spirit for alumni’s through various civic involvement and community events. They also foster professional relationships, as well as build awareness of the resources available to young professionals considering a move to Traverse City.

If you're a current YP, contact Josh or Courtney to learn more about how you can participate in the committee. Let them know if you're an active member of your alma mater's alumni association in would be great to have you on board to attract recent college graduates to our beautiful region!

Enjoy your weekend, everyone...and keep thinking spring!
