Looking to renew old Heller connections or make new ones? In the market for a job or an internship? Interested in serving as a mentor to a recent Heller grad or search for career advice from a fellow Heller alum?

Connecting with fellow Brandesians and Heller alumni is easier than ever with the newly relaunched B Connect platform, Brandeis’ hub for alumni networking and mentoring. Heller alumni can connect with each other using the private Heller group with an alumni directory, reach out to each other with a private messaging feature, view a jobs board and use the group feed to post a message or comment on other posts. The Heller group is nearly 300 members and growing! Students will also be using the platform to reach out to you!

The mobile-friendly tool provides access to an enhanced alumni directory that lets you quickly find fellow alumni on the basis of shared interests or professional credentials. You can also identify alumni-owned businesses, share your own business, or share your news with the Brandeis and Heller communities. There are also numerous interest groups that will continue to grow, including groups for each graduate school at Brandeis, and also an Alumni of Color Network and Women’s Network.

Users are able to log in using existing Apple, Facebook or Google accounts, and the updated B Connect interface integrates seamlessly with LinkedIn, which helps you upload your professional information.

Visit to sign up today. When you sign in, you’ll see the “Groups” noted in the left side navigation. Select that category to view all groups, join groups, and find the Heller Group. We’ll see you there soon!
