Careers Service

How you can get involved with SOAS

In the Careers Service, we are always looking for ways for SOAS alumni to get involved in our activities. Our current students derive great benefits from interacting with Alums, be it during a one-to-one meeting, or reading about a particular career path, or listening to a panel of speakers. There are several ways in which you can get involved with SOAS and current SOAS students once you graduate.

Exhibiting at or hosting events

We host a variety of events, employer presentations, fairs and skills sessions throughout the academic year. Further details are available on our employers page. 

Offer mentoring support  to students

SOAS Connect is our brand new eMentoring platform which is designed to help connect SOAS Students and Alumni. This could be anything from a few emails to checking a CV/application, to meeting face to face or even offering work experience. This also gives an opportunity for both students and alumni to connect with one another and have open discussions about opportunities and questions that we all face once we graduate!

SOAS Connect now hosts a BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) Careers Mentoring Programme. The programme is a space for BAME alumni to connect with BAME students and help develop their future careers. Join today via SOAS Connect - if you have any questions please get in contact at EmployerEngagement@soas.ac.uk.

Other ways to engage with students

You may wish to tell students what you are doing now as a SOAS graduate. If you are interested in sharing what you have been up to, just email careers@soas.ac.uk to find out how to contribute to our Change your World SOAS Careers blog.

If you have any questions about getting involved, please contact us on 020 7898 4115 or by email on careers@soas.ac.uk.
