Young Alumni Network

Follow us on social media!

You just finished your studies and you are looking for your first job. Or are you looking for a new challenge or another way to develop yourself? the young alumni network is here to help! 

Young alumni face different challenges than someone who's career is already further along or even ended. For these young alumni under the age of 35 we have created the Young Alumni Network. This network, founded in 2017, organises readings, workshops, networking drinks and other activities for young alumni. The focus of these activities are networking, your career, personal development and enjoying yourself.

Do you have any ideas for fun and interesting activities? Or would you like to invite fellow young alumni at your company for a company visit? Please contact us via alumni@utwente.nl!
