Looking to get that dream job, make an international role work, grow professional connections or become a better boss? Whatever rung you’re at on the career ladder – and even if you’re planning to step off it entirely – Imperial’s bespoke online platform Imperial Plexus can help you move in the right direction.

Join and you’ll have access to an exclusive community of around 11,000 Imperial alumni with expertise in all sectors, at all levels, all over the world. As well as offering you the chance to build your professional and social networks, you can search for and connect with fellow alumni, explore job and volunteering opportunities, and find events in your area.

To help you stay right up to date with the very latest developments in your field and keep your expertise fresh, you’ll have access to a huge range of online databases, journals, talks and e-books, including JSTOR, Karger Medical and Scientific Journals, and Henry Stewart Talks.

And if you’re looking for career advice, or just want to improve your understanding and resilience, check out our webinar series hosted by career experts at the cutting edge of their field. For instance, marketing and strategy consultant Dorie Clark is on hand to show how you can leverage your skills to differentiate yourself in a current or new role – or even re-invent yourself professionally; and international consultant Nicolas Constantinesco offers insights to job applicants on how to stand out, as well as how to understand better what recruiters want and to learn to tell stories that engage them. The panel of experts covers everything from avoiding burnout to mastering the art of informational interviews – with plenty more on the way.

Joanne Gardner in Imperial’s Alumni Relations team says: “As an Imperial graduate, we know your thirst for knowledge continues throughout your life, so we ensure a wide variety of online resources remain open to you after you leave. Plexus is your remote gateway to continue accessing valuable information and to connect directly with other alumni.”
