Dear OCs around the world
It is fitting that in our 125th year we can proudly invite you to join College Connect – the new official networking platform for the Maritzburg College Old Boys’ Association and the future of our great alumni.
After months of preparation on our side and a significant spend of +-R250 000 as well of hours of dedicated resource time invested, you can register in just 2 minutes by clicking here: https://maritzburgcollegeconnect.co.za/
You can log in using your Linkedin profile which will import your professional information for networking purposes which further streamlines the process. You could also use FaceBook.
What’s it all about?
College Connect brings our community together by providing you with access to the following:
- A job board with current opportunities, posted by OCs and strategic partners;
- Business to Business opportunities (load your Business to the network) to benefit from the “Old School Tie”;
- A running feed of MCOBA updates as well as relevant information from the School, providing interesting content, photos and conversations;
- A full opt-in directory of other OCs, allowing you to connect with the OC community around the world;
- A mentorship programme, giving you the opportunity to be mentored by others or to offer mentorship to fellow OCs;
- Group conversations allowing you to engage at a more granular level with those with the same class, interests, careers, industries, locations as you;
- Posts by the MCOBA, other OCs, and the College Community, inviting you to upcoming events, encouraging pop-up engagement, coffee meetings around the world, webinars hosted by subject matter experts within our networks, and other organic engagement opportunities created for and by you.
Please feel free to post content on the platform, including use of the feed, posting jobs, sharing photos and hosting/joining events.
We look forward to sharing all our news and events with you in one, easy to use place and we encourage you to engage with your fellow Old Boys.
