Inaugural Alumni Career Link Up

Inaugural Alumni Career Link Up

The regional inaugural Alumni Career Link Up went extremely well. Four alumni from Boston, New York and New Jersey shared real world current career advice virtually for over an hour using the OC Blackbaud Collaborate system. Subject areas included business law, negotiation, biochemistry and biotechnology etc. The alumni who gave freely of their time and expertise were Howard Goode, Victor Brown, Rayon Ward and Donovan Rodriques.

Over 80 students and young alumni joined the session from across the Caribbean and the session was very favourably received.

The guest panelists were inspired by the student’s excitement to learn about their careers, articles or videos they recommended, and tips on being successful.

Positive feedback was received, as students shared with their peers and lecturers their new or newly reinforced ideas about university life, career choices and the key ingredient for success in the world of work. In fact, the feedback was so positive that a series of these events will be organized annually.

If you are interested in taking part and talking about your career and professional experiences, please contact the Director of Alumni Relations for The UWI: - celia.davidson-francis@alumni.uwi.edu
