Recording of the Employability and alumni: are you maximising this relationship within your institution? webinar run on the 3rd September 2015 by Laura Brammar.
Here's the description of the original webinar:
Employability and alumni: are you maximising this relationship within your institution?
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:
- Reflect on various opportunities throughout the student life cycle to successfully engage alumni from an employability perspective
- Assess what the literature tells us regarding the success of alumni involvement and employability initiatives within HEIs.
- Explore the different methods of delivery which can be used in a comprehensive employability programme of alumni interaction, such as events, mentoring and Google hangouts.
- Consider key themes such as the added-value of such activities to the individual alumnus and, potentially, to their employer
The benefits of this webinar:
- Refine your understanding of the context of your work
- Develop your understanding of the issue
- Refresh your knowledge of the relevant literature
- Understand how other institutions are enhancing the employability of their cohorts through the use of their alumni.
