Bath Connection launches to students

10 November 2014

Students looking for support with their career plans can now benefit from Bath Connection - a new online system which enables them to contact ‘Alumni Experts’ in their area of interest.

More than 500 alumni, from a range of academic disciplines and professional backgrounds, have now submitted their profiles to our online database, which can be searched by students and recent graduates.

Students can use Bath Connection simply by signing up to become a member of our online alumni community. They are then invited to create a profile detailing the kind of support they are looking for, search for relevant Alumni Experts and make contact with them. It’s envisaged that students -and recent graduates - will use the system to ask questions about placements or careers, find mentors or request advice from people who have ‘been there already’.

The Department of Development & Alumni Relations, working closely with the Careers Service, developed Bath Connection in response to overwhelming offers from alumni to offer one-to-one careers advice for current Bath students. The system is designed to complement the existing support offered by the Careers Service.
