Hey UMD Friends, you should join me and sign up on the UMD Community on ComYoot! Why? Because currently there is no good way of leveraging the UMD community to advance our respective careers, or businesses. We may already be connected on LinkedIn, but I don’t know your real expertise, skills, needs, or how I can help you advance. Think of ComYoot as LinkedIn meets tinder for UMD students, alumni, and faculty. The ComYoot app connects you with other UMD students based on complementary expertise, needs, and interests to allow you to gain value from connecting now, or in the future when you have a need. Connect with me on ComYoot, and let’s network for our next internship or full-time jobs, to build on-campus startup teams, meet up for coffee chats, and to make lasting connections with other inspiring UMD students, alumni, and faculty on ComYoot. To download, click on one of the following links: Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.comyoot iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/comyoot/id1215361694?ls=1&mt=8 Enter referral code SN0009 to enter to win monthly prizes.
