Things like birthday emails are easy to set up but we have had some wonderful responses from alumni who have received them and been grateful that the University still thinks of them. What’s more? They get to contribute on their special day by donations!
One of our second year Operations Management students used the system to identify an “Alumni Expert” who helped her to prepare her CV and cover letter in order to secure her ideal work placement. The alumnus’ particular experience directly matched the advice the student needed, and they were able to find each other through the system.
