Business Networking

Business Networking

Networking is one of the most important skills you will develop during your time at university. With 60% of jobs occurring in a ‘hidden job market’, where roles aren’t always advertised, networking is essential.

Networking may sound scary, but it is all about making contacts and giving you a real head start from working out what to do, to getting support and advice for a business idea. The Careers Service offers a number of opportunities to start making contacts.

Graduate Connections is an online database of over 600 graduates now employed in a wide range of jobs and professions. You can read profiles or even contact them directly to get first-hand information, advice and insight about the work they do and how to get into a profession.

Career Insight events feature speakers who are in different roles within a particular sector. They give an overview about what they do and then are available to talk informally to individuals.

Regional, national and international employers come to the University throughout the year to give presentations and attend recruitment fairs to talk about their organisations, jobs on offer and how to apply successfully.
