We'll go over how you can browse profiles and connect with other members of the community for networking and mentorship.
You can search for and connect with others from the Explore the Community tab. This page may be titled differently based on how your platform is set up, but it will look something like this. From here, you can simply scroll through and click the "Let's Connect" button when you find someone who interests you.
If you're searching specifically rather than browsing, you can use the search bar at the top of the page. You can:
- Search by name.
- Filter by location.
- Filter by major(s).
- Filter by industry experience.
- Choose other filters.
6. You may also want to set a search alert. This means you'll be notified whenever users matching your search criteria are entered into the PeopleGrove platform.
If you're not seeing the page pictured above, it's possible your user type (typically Student, Alumni, Employer, and Professional) doesn't allow you to initiate connections. If you're a mentor and unable to connect with others, that simply means that you'll need to wait for students/professionals to reach out to you.
Submit a support ticket if you think you may have signed up with the wrong user type.
