Graduates reminded of alumni benefits
Thursday, 08 April 2010
Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in business management may be interested to hear that an alumni co-ordinator has urged students to take advantage of the crucial contacts fellow former students can give them.
Speaking to the Independent in a recent interview, Sarah Menday, Durham University's alumni co-ordinator, said that her own institution runs an alumni service and mentor scheme for all students.
She added: "Mentors can assist in a range of ways, from sharing their own career experience to information on how to budget and manage their time."
In the same feature, Jeanette Purcell, chief executive of the Association of MBAs, suggested that most students ignore or do not pay enough attention to the alumni chances on offer to them.
Ms Purcell said: "You will need an alumni network throughout your career. Alumni services are in most cases free resources. In this competitive world, you need all the help you can get."
