Hundreds of new users join the improved Jesus Connect app

In March 2023, Jesus College launched its new and improved version of Jesus Connect, the College’s mentoring and careers platform, with a range of additional and enhanced functionality.

Jesus Connect is for the exclusive use and benefit of alumni and current students of Jesus College, and was first launched in 2021.

The upgrade is an opportunity to engage hundreds of new users, including those who prefer to use an app to stay connected with the College.

Since the launch of Jesus Connect we’re delighted to have facilitated over 130 long-term mentoring partnerships and over 200 connections or ‘flash mentoring’ partnerships between students and alumni facilitated via the platform.

We look forward to continuing to build on this success with our new site as we move forwards into 2023.

Robin, who graduated last year, said: “The Jesus Connect online platform links current students, alumni, and industry contacts. It’s schemes like these that centre Jesus as a hub for growing opportunities and success even after graduation. I felt so well supported by the College in exploring different options. I’m not sure such support is offered by other Colleges.”

If you had an account on the previous version of Jesus Connect, you can reactivate your profile by creating an account using the same email address you used on the old platform (but creating a new password). If you have already completed the 'About me' and 'Why I want to mentor' profile sections on the original site, it is not necessary to complete these again – any information that you completed on the original site will be added by the platform and will appear within two weeks of re-activating your profile.

The original site only allowed users to detail one degree at Jesus College, but if you studied for several, you can now update your profile to reflect this. For further guidance on what these sections should contain or if you have any issues registering, please contact Sarah or Clelia in the Careers team.
