Why become a mentor?
Mentoring is also an excellent opportunity for continued professional development, a great way to raise your company's profile on campus and, as the programme is competitive and the standard of applicants very high, it is also a good way to target quality student and spot talent.
You can help a student in the following ways:
Capital Connections provides opportunities for students to travel to a city to gain excellent careers insight and advice. Students get to experience workplace visits, learning about different graduate opportunities, with a networking session with Lancaster alumni at the end.
'Coffee Break With...' are informal sessions where alumni come to campus and meet with students, helping increase their career confidence and labour market knowledge.
Webinars are also delivered by alumni to students, to help students better understand job opportunities open to them in relation to their degree subject. We aim to represent a diverse range of sectors in these webinars and so actively seek alumni from a variety of degree disciplines.
If you have any queries or would like to get involved with our networking events, please get in touch with our Alumni and Development team.
Becoming a guest speaker is a great way to offer your experience and expertise to students and fellow alumni.
This could include being part of a panel of speakers or taking part in a speed networking session.
If you're interested in becoming a guest speaker please contact our Alumni and Development department.
