#4 - a riff off a great comment by BPG - big picture guy. blogs can be
a terrific communication mechanism between corporations and former
employees. Long term corporations (IBM, Moto,GE) could use blogs to
reach out to retirees (schools/alumni for that matter) and continue to
stay in contact with them. The company could elicit feedback on new
programs, communicate health benefit changes (without sending out
costly forms) and give people a chance to communicate with former
employees. A really excellent method for a company to stay in touch
with former employees.
honestly, a blog is ideal for any institution interested in continuing
a dialogue with former employees, students, campers, volunteers,
etc...especially, great value between an university and the alumni.
quite a few university professors are using blogs for coursework...it
will be a matter of time before the alumni groups pick up on it.
#5 - while in a university/corporation vein....another great avenue for
a blog is as a conduit between a corporation's university relations
people (recruiters) and a university. creating a conversation between
corporate employees and university students could open up a much better
understanding of what a company has to offer versus what a new employee
is seeking. corporations could provide students with an understanding
of education needs/wants and provide a glimpse into the culture of the
company. a university recruiting blog could very much bring positive
attention to a corporation.
