Alumni Networking Workshop

Alumni Networking Workshop

Issued: Thu, 07 Sep 2017 10:49:00 BST

Join us for a series of special workshop events held throughout the academic year, which you can attend as part of your Graduate Award.

These workshops will make you aware of an existing, accessible network of successful business school graduates (alumni), advise you on how to create an attractive business profile to make you stand out to potential employers and teach you essential networking skills you can practice with fellow participants during these enjoyable interactive sessions.

By the end of the workshop, you will have;

  • Developed a greater understanding of the importance of business networks and how to get the most from them
  • Learned how to create a strong profile to help build your network across online platforms
  • Practised new skills to help you network more effectively in real life situations

About the workshops

Workshops will be led by the Adam Smith Business School Alumni Team, who are dedicated to maintaining global connections between the School and its alumni network.

These alumni are based in over 150 countries, working in a diverse range of business sectors and often in senior positions. Many of our alumni continue their involvement with the School, providing essential advice and support to enhance your student experience and improve your prospects of employment.

You will be joined by some of our alumni volunteers, who will discuss ways in which they have built their own successful networks. Finally, you will participate in a live networking scenario and practise how to build personal connections during an event.

We will be holding three identical workshops during the academic year, one in semester 1, and 2 workshops in semester 2. Places are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
