In order to maximise your success on the system, please follow some basic rules;

  • Be professional – these are potential employers, so be courteous and slightly formal
  • Be proactive – you will get nowhere being nervous or shy.  Contact everyone that might be useful and ask questions
  • Be purposeful – have a reason for contacting the alumni, they are busy people that want to help you.  Think about how they can do that
