Our on-line forums have suddenly got a whole lot busier, as our plan to link you with alumni has finally taken off. Now available to answer your career questions on-line are:
- Karen Lau – formerly one of our Chinese postgrads (MSc in Statistics) who is now working for UK strategy consultancy, Wood Holmes Group in Newcastle.
- Kelly Qian – another former Chinese postgrad (Msc Management) who is an Executive Partner working as a search and select consultant (that’s “senior management headhunter” to most of us) at The Jace-Kelly Leadership Acquisitions in Shanghai.
- Mark Thomson – a former business graduate, who, after a year as a Sports Sabbatical Officer, now works in strategy consultancy for Oliver Wyman based in Dubai.
This is a great opportunity for you to question our alumni about their experience of working in consultancy, particularly if you’re keen to work overseas or are an international postgrad who wants to work in the UK.
You’ll need to use your university log-in to access the forums and fill in some brief information the first time you log-in, but then you can ask questions or just lurk and read the answers already given (look under the Discussions marked “Expert Advice”). We’d love to schedule some more alumni disucssions so we’re on the lookout for others who would like to help you – if you know anyone who would be keen to help, just let us know!
