How can I contribute?

Promote LUMS via your networks

Share your experience and expertise

Boost LUMS students' career prospects

Join our new Career Contacts network and provide students with invaluable advice about your professional role, the recruitment process you went through or the organisation you work for.  

Career Contacts

Act as a Career Mentor‌ to a current student, or help at our Careers Fair and career networking and information events.    

Student projects and placements are a vital part of the programmes we teach. If you completed one yourself, you'll know what a great learning experience a project or placement can be, and what a tremendous benefit they can be for a company. Why not get your organisation to commission a project or placement?

Recruit from LUMS – you've experienced the quality of your fellow students at LUMS for yourself. If your employer is not yet recruiting at LUMS, why not? It's your job to help them see the light!
