Careers and Networking
If you are an OL who is willing to share your experience of business or professional life to help current students, please let us know. We are building a network so that our members can support career development.
OLs have worked together with the Careers Department to support a number of career fairs and smaller profession-focused events. If you are interested in coming to speak to current students, please get in touch with us via email@example.com.
OLs have in the past shown a keen interest in the careers of the current students, offering a variety of talks ranging from the military, law, doctors, banking, engineering, vets and much more.
