Track every interaction and success story

Professional networking is nebulous and hard to track. But Switchboard keeps tabs on all member activity to help you find the source of every hire and the identity of every active alumni mentor.

Our interactions director ensures you'll never have to make a guess in your reports again.


When we ask students to network, they need some training. But when they have a specific ask on Switchboard, it creates a more meaningful connection, and they don’t even realize that’s networking. Students find opportunities that they may not have been able to find from other resources.
