By Nov.21, 2016

Ambition Sculpture, University of SalfordSalford Business School is set to launch an Insights & Networking Series later this month. The programme of events aims to connect colleagues, alumni, students, employers and industry partners.

The first event will be a Salford Law Alumni Mixer, to be held on Wednesday 30 November in the Lady Hale building. The Law Mixer has been designed and organised by Lizzy Przychodzki and Lucy Fish, who together have created a unique event open to all colleagues, current students and alumni.

This will be followed by networking sessions and notable industry guest speakers who will highlight their own route into the profession, as well as key tips on applications and interview techniques.

Undergraduate Programme Director Lizzy Przychodzki says: “For me, the purpose of the event is to really celebrate Salford and our students. By bringing in some of our recent alumni to pass on their insights, anecdotes and Salford pride, we can really inspire students to use all the great support on offer here so that they too can reach their career goals.”
