5 Reasons to Sign up on ProConnect
By Arijit Banerjee
Neha (name changed) was working with a small marketing company based out of Bangalore for four years before she went on a maternity leave for two years. As a marketing manager dealing with global and desi brands, Neha had already built a strong portfolio for promising opportunities in the future. However, things seemed somewhat different when she tried looking for fresh opportunities post her maternity leave. Despite of a great resume and prior business associations with big clients, she was struggling to find a job! A freshly written resume too failed to get her a decent job that she deserved.
It was only then that she decided to leverage her network of friends and professional connections from Manipal ProLearn for referrals where she did her digital marketing course from. Guess what? Within a week she started getting promising responses from various organisations. She is now working as a Senior Marketing Manager with a global cosmetics brand.
That is how powerful and effective networking is today!
In order to help students, professionals, and job seekers by creating a robust ecosystem, Manipal ProLearn has introduced the ProConnect, ProLearn's exclusive alumni network. This is a platform that helps students of Manipal ProLearn to connect with each other, discuss problems, find solutions and be a part of a growing community. Here are 5 reasons why you should sign up on ProConnect, today.
a. Get to know about great job openings – Getting a job is one thing and getting one that you are really passionate about is another. This is where ProConnect will be a great benefit. ProConnect lists multiple job openings across domains and industries that you can apply for.
b. Create valuable connections – It is always great to build connections. Neha’s story stands testimony to that, doesn’t it? At ProConnect you get to connect with a lot of professionals from your field. Not only can you discuss opportunities with them but also about new skills.

e. Walk down the memory lane – If you are a Manipal ProLearn alumni then you can get to know more about your batch, batchmates and relive the old memories. Staying in touch shouldn’t have to be on boring terms especially when you can relive great memories of the past.
