Can you believe it’s been two years since we launched @WorkingOrange? It’s our Twitter account featuring guest alumni tweeters sharing details of their workdays and offering advice to students and fellow alumni. We’re having a lot of fun with @WorkingOrange and today, we’re excited to announce another way our students can connect with our awesome alumni – via Instagram!

We’re calling it #CuseCue. Why #CuseCue? A cue is, simply put, a signal for action. Syracuse University alumni know the actions they took towards achieving career/life success, and students can take their cues from fellow members of our Orange family. A #CuseCue might be advice on standing out in an interview, tips on paying back college loans, thoughts on what makes a rockstar intern, insight on the most fulfilling career paths, and so much more. The goal is to keep each #CuseCue to 140 characters or less. Short and sweet advice from alumni who are the best at sharing it!

STUDENTS, here’s what to do/expect:

  • Follow @CareerSU1 on Instagram
  • Every Friday, we’ll introduce you to a new SU grad and you’ll find his/her #CuseCue in the photo’s description.
  • We’ll tag his/her Instagram, so you can connect directly with the alum, if you’d like.

ALUMNI, are you willing to share a #CuseCue?

  • Follow @CareerSU1 on Instagram
  • Email Magnolia Salas (, our awesome Communications and Marketing Coordinator, with the following information:
    • Your name, SU graduation year, job title and employer
    • Your Instagram handle (if you have one and wouldn’t mind us sharing it)
    • A photo you’d like us to use on our Instagram on the day we feature your #CuseCue. It can be a cool picture of your office, a headshot, a fun photo showing your Orange personality, your SU graduation picture, you name it. Be creative if you’d like!
    • And, of course, your #CuseCue. Try to keep your advice for students/fellow alumni to 140 characters or less.

That’s it! We are excited to feature our alumni in this new way and can’t wait to read the awesome advice in each #CuseCue.
