The Berkeley Haas Alumni Slack Workspace provides an opportunity for alumni to stay connected — to the school and to each other. It also offers students a platform to connect and network with alumni from all degree programs, industries, geographies and areas of interest and/or expertise.
It is the intent of this platform to remain professional and respectful of all members at all times. With this goal in mind, we set forth these norms:
- Your Slack presence is an extension of your personal brand — represent yourself well.
- Be helpful & collaborative: don’t only ask for help, but also provide it or share insights when applicable.
- Assume best intent. Sometimes tone and context are lost in text.
- Be responsive and follow-up respectfully — in a manner and timeframe you would expect of others.
- Keep your status up-to-date with details of your availability, if applicable.
- Add content that is valuable and relevant to the Berkeley Haas channel where you are posting (e.g. if you are looking for career connections or job opportunities, post your request in the “Hire Haas” and appropriate industry related channels).
- Keep your posts targeted (presume that individuals won’t see your message unless you @ them) and don’t notify everyone in the channel with urgency unnecessarily.
- Re-read your message before you hit send. However, if you need to edit a post/message, that function is always available.
- Know when another platform, such as email, is preferable (e.g. follow-up to an informational interview or recruiting conversation).
- Don’t forget to communicate and network with your Berkeley Haas community outside of Slack.
