NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 30, 2012) - On July 30th, the Sheffield School answered the calls of thousands of graduates when they launched the Sheffield School Alumni Association. For the first time, graduates all over the world will be invited to join a private online community developed especially for them.
Founded in 1985 in New York City, the Sheffield School has trained thousands of interior designers, wedding planners, and jewelry designers all over the world. The alumni association will offer graduates in one of the home-study programs a variety of member benefits, including a social networking community, business listings, a job board, webinars and events, and more.
"At the Sheffield School, we've always stayed by our commitment to support our students long after they graduate," said Sheffield School Director Chuck DeLaney, "and this community is something we hope will benefit our alumni no matter what their goals are in the field."
For years, students who've completed one or more of the courses offered by the Sheffield School have asked how they can connect with other alumni. In addition to the opportunity to befriend and learn from their peers, members of the Alumni Association will be able to sign up for free continuing education opportunities and receive discounts from partners in their respective fields.
Sheffield School graduates who want to learn more should read about the Sheffield School Alumni Association or contact the school.
