Our new Graduates Network Blog is up and running!

Since 2009, we’ve needed a channel of communication with our graduates that would:

• Allow greater reach and better mass communication with graduates. • Synthesize all of the information and opportunities that we manage from the Graduates Network in one place. • Promote horizontal communication and information exchange between graduates. • Create a space where graduates can express themselves and communicate their concerns so that we would be able to assess them and respond to their interests and needs.

We decided to create a blog, as many of our graduates are already accustomed to this form of electronic communication.

After nearly a year of work and--with the help of a blogging expert—investigating approximately twenty designs targeting the needs of the Graduates Network, we’ve finally created and launched a blog exclusively for the use of our graduates!

Here, the graduates can find information to conduct job orientation and training courses, apply to university scholarships and job searches, volunteer with Cimientos and make contact with other graduates from all of Argentina. In this way, our blog continues to facilitate the social and professional inclusion of our graduates after they complete their secondary educations.

We currently have 130 graduates following our blog, and the number of subscribers continues to increase every week. The Graduate Network investigates and publishes new information and opportunities every week.

Below, we’ve included some testimonials left by graduates on our new blog:

¨Hello, my name is Leonardo and I am a 2007 graduate of the School of Technical Education N° 3 Domingo Fuastina Sarmiento. I’m in my second year of studying Systems Engineering at the Tandil University of Exact Sciences. To me, the new Blog seems like an excellent way to exchange information and keep in touch. I’m not sure if you’ve already heard, but in Tandil from the 1st to the 4th of July there will be a job fair in the Cultural Center. I found out through my university, and I thought it would be a good idea to share it with all of you in case you hadn’t heard about it. Greetings, Leonardo, graduate from Mar del Plata 2007.¨

¨Hello I’m Alejandra, a graduate of the School of Middle Education N° 1 of Berisso and a former Cimientos scholarship program participant. The truth is that I was so busy with college that I didn’t have time to really look at the page but today I was able to sit down and take a good look, and I realized that I had really been missing out because the truth is that there are some really interesting things on the blog! Kisses, see you soon  Let’s get more people to join the Network  Alejandra, graduate of Ensenada 2009.¨

¡Ya está en funcionamiento nuestro Blog de Egresados!

Desde el año 2009 que necesitábamos una herramienta de comunicación con los egresados que permitiera: • Tener mayor alcance y mejor comunicación masiva con egresados. • Congregar toda la información y oportunidades que gestionamos desde la Red de Egresados en un solo lugar. • Promover la comunicación horizontal y el intercambio de información entre egresados. • Generar un espacio donde los egresados puedan expresarse y comunicar sus inquietudes para poder asesorarlos y responder a sus intereses y necesidades.

Decidimos armar un blog, teniendo en cuenta que es una herramienta a la cual los jóvenes suelen estar habituados.

Luego de un trabajo de casi un año, donde con la ayuda de una persona experta en el tema arrancamos relevando aproximadamente 20 diseños acorde a las necesidades de la Red de Egresados, ¡¡¡finalmente creamos y lanzamos un blog exclusivo para nuestros egresados!!!

Allí los egresados pueden encontrar información para realizar cursos de orientación laboral y capacitaciones, aplicar a becas universitarias y a búsquedas de empleo, ser voluntario en Cimientos y contactarse con egresados de todo el país en pos de lograr su inclusión social y laboral una vez finalizados sus estudios secundarios.

Actualmente ya contamos con 130 egresados suscriptos al blog y cada semana se van sumando nuevos. Desde la Red de Egresados, semanalmente buscamos y publicamos nuevas oportunidades e información.

Compartimos con ustedes algunos comentarios que los egresados fueron dejando en el blog:

Hola me llamo Leonardo (…), egresado de la Escuela de Educación Técnica N° 3 Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, año 2007. Estoy cursando segundo año de Ingeniería en Sistemas en la Facultad de Ciencias Exactas de Tandil. Me parece una idea excelente la del Blog, para intercambiar información y mantenernos en contacto. No sé si están enterados pero en Tandil del 1 al 4 de Junio hay una exposición de empleos en el Centro Cultural, yo me enteré por medio de la facultad, y me pareció buena idea compartirlo con ustedes por si no estaban enterados. Saludos. Leonardo, egresado 2007 de Mar del Plata.

Hola soy Alejandra, egresada de la Escuela de Educación Media Nº 1 de Berisso y ex becada de Cimientos. La verdad que con la cursada de la facultad no estuve con tiempo para revisar bien la página pero hoy me senté, la mire y ¡vi lo que me estaba perdiendo porque la verdad hay cosas bastantes interesantes! Besos, nos vemos :) Unamos a más chicos a la Red :). Alejandra, egresada 2009 de Ensenada.
