Students log in to UNSW Business School Career Accelerator Network and search through the Alumni Advisor profiles. Students send a message to graduates they wish to talk to, introducing themselves and requesting a specific conversation to suit their needs: career conversation, resume review or mock interview. Many students will hope to speak to alumni who graduated from their same degree, or those who are working in their future dream job. Students are able to use multiple search fields to filter the pool of alumni available including geographic location, industry, degree, company and role.
After receiving a conversation request from a student, you’ll be asked to accept or decline. If you accept the student’s request, your phone will ring at the appointed time, connecting you and the student similar to conference call facility. You will need to opt in to the ‘dial in’ system, instead of the default ‘dial out’ option to avoid being charged the cost of a local call. You will receive an SMS text message reminder five minutes prior to your booked call. Please note you must opt in for this service and you will be charged to cost of an SMS applicable to your phone plan.
