More often than not, people lose touch with former business colleagues. They cite multiple reasons including lack of accurate contact information and lack of time. After a certain amount of time passes, people often report feeling awkward making a call to a former colleague. Losing contact with former co-workers can be detrimental to your career health. Since 70-80% of people source new opportunities through trusted friends and colleagues, it’s imperative that your career management strategy incorporates ways to stay in touch with people you have worked with in the past.

Corporate Alumni (www.corporatealumni.com) is a free service that leverages and restores former employment relationships via active, vibrant, online communities.

Best of all, participation enables you to reconnect with old friends. Corporate Alumni is a valuable social networking resource and worth checking out.
