LinkedIn has been rolling out interface changes since the end of 2016. Some users have already experienced the new look and feel, they even have already deciphered most changes. However some are just finding out and getting acquainted. If you don’t have the new interface yet, you will soon enough; the roll-out is gradual and is expected to be complete by May 2017.
The biggest concern I’ve been hearing about is “where did the Find Alumni link go to?” It was originally in the My Network tab on the main upper menu. Although My Network is still there in the new interface, the Find Alumni link is now no-where to be seen –gulp.
For a while now, some reported it missing, even feared LinkedIn had decided to sunset it. But don’t panic. It’s still in there. You can find this by navigating to your school page via the search box, and then clicking on the View Alumni button. Violà! This tool allows you to search Alumni on LinkedIn by location, company or functional area. The mobile app on the other hand, doesn’t have all the perks. Make sure you’re navigating on your desktop’s browser to take full advantage of these features!
