We recently acquired an alumni networking platform which we have called OA Connect and we are officially launching it to the Old Andrean community today.
To give you some background …
The Foundation Office manages all formal communications for the Andrean community, but we've always felt that OAs would like to be able to reach out to members of the community themselves. We have investigated several options and, together with the OA Club, have chosen OA Connect as the most appropriate platform for our community's needs.
OA Connect is a networking platform designed specifically for Old Andreans. It allows you to connect with other OAs, post interesting news and articles, network with each other, find and advertise jobs, ask for and offer mentoring opportunities, and so much more. The Foundation Office will also post on OA Connect, and the OA Club Branch Chairmen will be able to communicate directly with all Andreans living in their region.
Registration on OA Connect is easy via this link: www.oaconnect.co.za and you can register using your personal email address, LinkedIn, Facebook or Gmail account.
We've also developed an app which can be downloaded to your phone via the following links:
Please note that the iOS app is a container app so make sure you choose St Andrew's College from the drop down list.
The OA Club is the first school alumni organization in South Africa to sign up on this platform, and OA Connect has enormous potential to be an invaluable tool for our community. We need as many OAs as possible to register and use it on a regular basis.
OA Connect is ready now, so please register now, share with your OA friends and start exploring!
With kind regards
SAC Foundation Office
