Earlier this year, Hult welcomed alumni from all functions and industries back to campus to talk to current students about their experiences and journey after graduation. Globally, over 100 alumni participated in panels at the London, Boston, Dubai, and San Francisco campuses.

The Career Bootcamp was positioned around sharing industry insights for students aspiring towards careers in consulting, finance, business development, marketing, product management, and entrepreneurship. We saw huge engagement from alumni across various years and programs, all of whom wanted to contribute to the employability of our current students.

Alumni were asked questions about career prospects, networking best practices, lessons learned, how they landed their first role after graduation, and how they were able to secure sponsorship for work permits. They also advised students on how to make the most out of their time studying at Hult.

As a school, we were overwhelmed by the number of alumni who wanted to add value to the journey of current students. The willingness to contribute showed the sense of pride and community that our alumni network shares.

 

Here’s what a few alumni had to say about the day and their experience:

“Panel events with alumni participation are a great environment to network and ask all those questions that we do not want to ask recruiters or HR.

It was nice to see Hult students proactively ask detailed questions and be able to help them find or reaffirmed their career choices. It was a pleasure for me to participate in the event and be able to meet students of diverse backgrounds.”

“I think Career Bootcamp is another great initiative by Hult to help current students understand and plan what career journey they want to take after the completion of their courses.

This exercise gives them a first-hand view of the transition Hult alums have made and challenges they faced in the career marketplace.”

“The Bootcamp panel seemed to resonate alumni power. It was great to see current students enthusiastic to hear from alums early in the morning on a weekend. It is satisfying to give back to my alma mater. These young graduates will make the world a better place to live in.

“Being part of an alumni panel has been rewarding for me and a chance to give back some of the good experiences I’ve enjoyed within the Hult community.

Meeting with other alumni and students at Hult is enriching in itself. We all come from a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures, languages, locations—diversity makes the interchange of ideas and experiences extremely interesting.

I believe this is one way we create a community: we receive, we give back, and we all win a great network of connections and good friends.”
