A group of work placement students from Brunel Business School came up with the idea to form a Student-2-Student support group on LinkedIn to help returning placement students continue with their professional development, networking and business skills gained over the placement year.
Mona Kalantar, currently on work placement with BOSCH as a Logistics Continuous Improvement Intern, one of the group founders, said the group will also help to reintegrate final year students into the business student community.
“We’ve created the BBS Student-2-Student Support Group to provide support to our classmates in the final year of studies. Students can connect with and seek support from other classmates studying the same modules/degree pathway, with the long-term objective of facilitating a culture of teamwork amongst BBS current final year students and alumni. This group is focused on maximising the potential of BBS students achieving their very best and to support returning placement students in connecting with their new classmates, leading to a better integration experience in the final year of studies.”
The group, launched today, is dedicated to students expected to graduate in 2015 at this stage only, with the view of including other years in the future.
