Strengthening of career guidance and alumni network

2005.09.08

A grant of 1.5 million Danish kroner allows ASB to establish a career centre and develop alumni network

Career guidance is an important issue on the education-political agenda, and at ASB half of a grant of 1.5 million Danish kroner will be used to strengthen exactly this area.

- The career centre will provide students with advice and guidance on traineeships, student jobs and their first jobs, and naturally we hope that this will promote awareness and make students think more about their future jobs and careers at an early stage of their studies. It will also provide specific help to companies wishing to contact and recruit students, says Pernille Kallehave, Team Manager for Team for communication and external relations at ASB.

Former students are important partners

At the end of 2002, ASB established the Alumni Club and the last half of the grant will be used to further develop this network and to strengthen relations with former ASB students.

- Closer contacts with former students have many advantages in connection with e.g. career guidance, and at the same time alumni are obvious network agents within the companies, Project Manager for the Alumni Project, Jacob Jensen, explains.

Both projects will be developed in close cooperation with the relevant parties, both internally and externally.
