Employability and alumni: are you maximising this relationship within your institution? - webinar
Monday, 6 February 2017 from 12:00 to 13:00 (GMT)
In this interactive webinar, you will explore:
> In terms of employability, are you engaging your alumni contacts in the most effective way?
> What can we learn from other institutions and how they work with their alumni from an employability perspective?
The session is aimed at careers and employability professionals and academics who are engaged in designing and delivering employability provision across a range of curricula and are interested in how to work with alumni in this area.
By the end of the course participants will have explored examples of employability initiatives which successfully utilise alumni contacts and will have also reviewed the literature around this topic.
This webinar will enable you to:
