Become a Career Expert

Offer your time, experience and employment opportunities in a way that suits you, through the Career Expert programme.

Being a Career Expert is an easy and flexible way to help other alumni in their career. You don't have to be an industry leader or at the top of the ladder to offer your services.

You can choose how many people to support and how you'd be willing to support them, for example:

  • Giving online feedback on CVs;
  • Meeting over the phone to discuss interview techniques;
  • Meeting in person and showing them what it's like to work in your field;
  • Exchanging messages offering career insights.

How you support someone is up to you.

Who can be a Career Expert?

Recent graduates

If you are a recent graduate, you can share your experiences of entering the job market, choosing the right career, developing the right skills, preparing for job applications and interviews.

Established professionals

You'll have in-depth knowledge of your industry and can advise on progression, transferable skills, resolving difficult situations and long-term career planning.


Being an entrepreneur is an increasingly popular career goal for many students, but it can be very daunting. You can pass on the advice you wish you had been given when you first started out. 

People working outside the UK

Your insight into the job market where you work could result in a life-changing move for someone.
