SCU Ring Knockers Philosophy

A Santa Clara University degree is the one common bond and shared experience for more than 100,000 alumni, providing an entry point for networking opportunities. A group of engineering alumni--some seasoned professionals--with help from the School of Engineering created the SCU Ring Knockers in response to feedback from current students and alumni who wanted to leverage the power of the SCU network to recruit and hire qualified SCU Ring Knockers for their companies.

Ring Knockers is a free and convenient recruiting service to help SCU RING KNOCKERS identify strong job candidates who share their SCU background through the Ring Knockers LinkedIn group.

It is a simple concept - “We pull you up, you help pull up other SCU students.” Let’s start recruiting fellow SCU RING KNOCKERS for your company today.
