Ways to help
There are many ways you can help as a volunteer. All our volunteers are fully supported by the Development and Alumni Relations Office and are welcome to join us for as little or as much time as you can spare.
Here are just a few of the ways you can help:
Offer advice to students and recent alumni via Exepert
Could you offer informal careers advice to students and recent alumni who are looking for guidance in their choice of career and how to succeed in the world of work once they graduate? This opportunity is relevant for both recent and experienced alumni across all sectors and job types.
From your workplace
Provide an internship
If you don’t have time to return to campus or to volunteer in your spare time, you can still add value via your day job – either by helping directly yourself or by making introductions on our behalf.
There are many benefits of offering internships. Exeter students and graduates are intelligent, motivated and enthusiastic. They can undertake new projects, help with cover or trial new roles, for example.
Help students practice their interview techniques by acting as a recruiter at a mock interview on campus this coming autumn term. This experience is enormously beneficial for students, most of whom have had little exposure to formal interviewing. We have no specific requirements around seniority but alumni might already work in recruitment roles and should have good experience of conducting recruitment interviews.
International Country Contact
Help fellow alumni renew friendships and strengthen ties with the University through networking by acting as a contact for your country and helping to organise activities in your region.
If you would like to get involved or have ideas for other ways you might help, please get in touch with our Alumni Volunteer Manager, Emma McFadyen at: firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01392 725632. We would love to hear from you.
