Giving back to society is an important part of what we do, and our community is dedicated to making the world a better place.

This March sees the return of King's annual Global Day of Service, bringing the King’s community together to volunteer, give their time and make a difference in their local and national communities.

Our flagship day of service is 25 March, to celebrate the day King’s was founded, but volunteering initiatives and events will be taking place throughout the month.

As part of the programme, this March our alumni are offering mentoring sessions to support you, our students. There are many benefits to having an alumni mentor; they can share valuable professional insights, assist with developing your skill set and support the growth of your network, so you can tackle your next steps with confidence.

If you haven’t done so already, register for an account on King’s Connect to sign up. As soon as your account is approved, you can search for a suitable mentor on the directory and send a mentoring request. There are hundreds of alumni mentors from a diverse range of industries and backgrounds who are here to support you with:

  • Careers and professional development advice
  • Subject and course advice
  • Reviewing a CV or cover letter
  • Interview preparation and practice

For guidance on how to find a mentor and make a request, you can follow the mentoring video guide.

Find out more about King’s Connect mentoring on the King’s website and keep an eye on the Student News pages for updates and further stories on King’s Global Day of Service.
