Department of Physics Alumni Connections

LinkedIn Alumni Group

Alumni of the Physics Department have a LinkedIn group, “Washington University in Saint Louis, Physics Department Alumni”. All current and former physics majors, minors, graduate students, and faculty can create a free account and take advantage of the group resources. Members are encouraged to invite connections to join and increase the representation of mid-career members. The group is an information source on career path types (industry, government, and academic) for physics students and a networking tool for established alumni. While physicists can use their skills in many job areas, the group provides a contextual dataset of specific careers achieved by those with a WashU education and credentials. Helpful information for students and soon-to-be graduates includes field-specific job titles, an inventory of skills necessary for success in various job types, as well as networking and contact information.
