Offer career advice
Sign-up to Bristol Connects and volunteer as a Career Expert to support students and alumni in a way that suits you.
Register as a career e-mentor, volunteer at employability-focused events, and/or share your Bristol story in a testimonial. Alumni can volunteer for one, two or all three of these opportunities through Bristol Connects.
Volunteer at employability events
Throughout the year we have opportunities for alumni to get involved and volunteer their time at a range of events which support student and graduate employability. This could be digital or in-person sessions such as open days, talks or interviews. You can choose what type of events you are interested in supporting and a member of staff will then be in touch when opportunities arise.
Register as a career e-mentor
Being a career e-mentor is an easy and flexible way to help alumni and students 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 would be willing to support them, for example:
- Giving online feedback on CVs;
- Meeting over the phone to discuss interview techniques;
- Exchanging messages offering career insights.

Inspire students by telling us about your time at university and your career journey since. Sharing your story could help students make decisions about their next steps.
