New support scheme for graduates

The University of East Anglia is launching a new scheme to put graduates living in the area in touch with each other with a view to setting up their own support network.

It will allow recent graduates, whether they studied in Norfolk or not, to share their own experiences, and discover how the skills they have learned can be of mutual benefit to each other.

The initiative has been launched by the university's Graduate Internship Programme and is still in its early stages, but it is planned to become a longer-term initiative run by the graduates themselves.

The new scheme, called Intro – Graduate Network, will stage a pilot session on Tuesday January 25 at the Dog House on St George's Street, Norwich from 6pm to 7.30pm.

A brief humorous talk will take place by Adrienne Jolly on 'How not to get a job', and there will be led discussions on the current graduate climate.
