For the alumni of the Tio University of Applied Sciences, keeping in touch may prove challenging. For international tourism graduates, working abroad is logical career move, leading to a global community of over 20000 ex-students in over 30 countries. The challenge was to come up with a solution for them to stay in touch.
We developed a custom content-rich community website built on the Drupal Commons framework, where alumni can get in touch with their organisation and eachother. The site features an elaborate directory of hospitality and international tourism professionals to keep track of fellow-alumni across the world.
Potential employers can post jobs to an audience of over 20000 fresh graduates and experienced professionals. Logged in users can follow users, posts and send each other private messages. Events for alumni are regularly posted on the platform, where users can register attendance.
