Pipers at Work

Have you ever wondered where your HU colleagues work and what they do? I recently gathered this information from the LinkedIn Alumni Tool and enjoyed reading through the lists.

It’s no surprise, with 66 percent of our alumni living in the greater Twin Cities area, that many of the employers listed here are based in the Twin Cities. Of the 17 Fortune 500 companies in Minnesota, several of them appear on our top employers lists as well: UnitedHealth Group, Target, U.S. Bancorp, 3M, Best Buy, and Ameriprise.

The types of work we do are wide ranging and in alignment with Hamline’s mission to develop our “students’ knowledge, values, and skills for successful lives of leadership, scholarship, and service.” Hamline alumni are working in education, health care, finance, information technology, government, retail, science, and industry.
