Sussex Connect networking platform reaches over 2,200 global members

Sussex Connect

A warm welcome to all recent alumni and students who have joined Sussex Connect in the last couple of months. As the new term gets underway, we are inviting our Business School students to join the global network and membership has now grown to over 2,200.

Take a look at the directory to see who is new on the platform. If there is someone you’d like to connect with, do send them a message and introduce yourself. You can see how people are willing to help by looking at their profiles.

Alumni to alumni networking events
Alumni members are now starting to create their own regional meet-ups using the events function. Sussex Connect member Tanya Hristrova recently organised a successful, informal meet-up in Brussels with fifteen alumni getting together for drinks.

Alumni to student networking events
Sussex Connect member Hussain Al-Hussaini is coming back to campus to talk about his work as an economics adviser in the UK Civil Service, at an event hosted by the Economics Society. Students, alumni and faculty are all welcome to attend.

Alumni will also be attending the forthcoming graduate recruitment Careers Fair on Wednesday 7 November 11am – 3pm at the AMEX Stadium, Falmer, Brighton, where they will be representing their employers. Students and recent graduates can sign up to the event here. Make sure you visit the alumni relations team at our Sussex Connect stand in the foyer.

These are just some of the ways alumni and students are networking with each other using Sussex Connect.
Who will you connect with?
