Networking in London Made Easy
15 RWTH alumni met April 22, at The Tapster wine bar in Central London for the regular alumni get together: "It was a wonderful evening, not least due to the wine. All attendees appeared to enjoy meeting other former members of RWTH. We had a good mix of old and new alumni, causing a good discussion about experiences," said Rana Ilgaz, coordinator of the RWTH London alumni.© private
If nothing else, the old alumni could offer a few tips on how to get one's footing in England and what behavior is helpful for further success. It is particularly important to present one's personality, one's market value so to speak, and self-confidence well. Many of RWTH's English graduates already have this advantage. Other alumni were happy to hear news about Aachen and RWTH Aachen or have the opportunity to speak German again.
The meet up takes place quarterly. There are already some ideas for a joint excursion. Anyone pulled towards London will quickly make friends with the alumni there.
