Through the Career and Industry Insights Programme, students can connect with alumni, find out more about their workplace, and various roles, careers and industries.

How it works

  • Alumni sign up to be matched with two first-year business students in their second semester.
  • The students arrange a zoom interview with the alum, on an agreed day and time between Thursday 24 September and Wednesday 14 October. 

The zoom meeting

  • Chat to students about your career journey, your role, your organisation and your industry.
  • Talk about workplace culture, responsibilities and expectations.
  • Think about potentially inviting a colleague along to the zoom meeting.
