Alumni Services

Careers advice

Connect.ed is a secure and confidential online service that enables alumni to give careers advice to students and fellow alumni.

Careers advice

This is an informal yet confidential opportunity to share your professional knowledge and experience and help others who are interested in a similar career, or share an academic background. You can also use the service to get help and advice from fellow alumni wherever they are in the world.

Online guidance

Connect.ed uses the MyEd Alumni Portal as a secure platform for the service. You can use the Connect.ed facilities within the portal to:

  • Register as an official Connect.ed contact and offer advice and guidance to students and alumni.
  • Use the Connect.ed search to identify sources of wisdom and relevant professional insight.
  • Filter based on occupation, sector, employer, school or location to find your perfect professional match.
  • View profile information and send a Connect.ed request.

Extra information

  • Careers advice via Connect.ed is also available to 3rd, 4th and postgraduate students.
  • Acceptance of a Connect.ed request is entirely at the discretion of the Connect.ed contact.
  • Once a Connect.ed request is accepted an email conversation will start.
