Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) Network FAQ

Why don't I see more results when I search?
Not all alumni populated new fields during the last system upgrade, so some searches—especially those related to graduate school—may not produce very many alumni listings. For the most results, use the least number of search criteria. For instance, try searching for anyone who attended grad school, rather than for a specific school in a specific field.

Can I use ASK after I graduate?
ASK Online, along with all other CES Exclusive Career Resources, are available for use by University of Puget Sound students while they attend Puget Sound, and for six months following graduation. After you graduate, hopefully you'll join ASK and share your own experience with future generations of Loggers!

Can I use ASK to contact Puget Sound alumni I'd like to do business with?
No. This is a violation of the ASK Privacy and Terms of Use Policy. The ASK Network is to be used exclusively for the purpose of career exploration.  

Why is the Major field blank for some alumni on the Search results page?
Some alumni have multiple majors, and some have majors from institutions other than Puget Sound. When you search for alumni by major, the system searches across multiple fields (all the fields that contain majors), but can only display one. If the field is blank, it means that the alum has that major, but it is not in the field that the system displays. To see the individual’s major, click on their profile for more information.

Is the ASK Network also on LinkedIn?
The rumors are true. The ASK Network is transitioning to LinkedIn! Alumni are currently being invited to join, and the new venue will be rolled out to students during the 2015 fall semester. Watch for details!
