Research using the LinkedIn Alumni tool

The Alumni tool is a powerful way to find people to connect with. This search has already been filtered for you to show all of those who studied history or at EHU between 2014 and 2023, but you can also search by keyword, see their job titles and organisations they’re working with. You can also use this tool to grow your network by connecting with EHU alumni and by reaching out to them to get an insight in to their role or company.
