GradLink - an alumni database

GradLink is a database of over 800 graduates, working in a variety of jobs, who have volunteered to talk about their careers, employers or their field of further study. In addition to receiving valuable information and advice, current students have been able to arrange visits, work shadowing, work experience, and occasionally permanent jobs, as the results of contact made through GradLink.
