Graduate network launch
THE University of East Anglia is developing a scheme to put graduates living in the area in touch with each other to develop their own support network.
It will allow recent graduates, whether they studied in Norfolk or not, to share their own experiences, and discover how the vast range of different skills they have learnt can be of mutual benefit.
The new scheme, intro – Graduate Network, is being launched on Tuesday at the Dog House, St George’s Street, Norwich.
Launched by the university’s graduate internship programme it is planned to become a longer-term project run by graduates.
With a focus on career development, the internship team will be on hand on the night for support and advice. A brief humorous talk will take place by Adrienne Jolly on How not to get a job, and there will be led discussions on the current graduate climate.
