There are a number of opportunities to meet with our alumni during careers talks to practise networking, make contacts and to understand particular career sectors and routes into those professions from the perspective of someone with recent experience.
We recently introduced a Career Mentors Scheme, pairing alumni with current students.
Our alumni are uniquely placed to provide advice and guidance on navigating those first steps into graduate employment, alongside the Careers and Employability services on campus. Students are currently mentored by those working in a variety of sectors and professions including heritage, archaeology, advertising, marketing, public relations, arts administration, journalism and publishing. This helps to improve student confidence and awareness of career areas available.
