Yahoo! launches student/alumni network to launch careers

November 6, 2007

Yahoo! Kickstart is the newest social network on the block, and is specifically targeting current and former PSE students.  The site combines Facebook's social functions with the sort of professional networking offered by LinkedIn -- promising to connect students and alumni to possible employers during their transition from education to employment.  The college or university that registers the most members by December 31 will receive $25,000.
