Universities with the an 'old boys network' systemWatch
Its about who you know full stop. Whether thats at school college or university is irrelevant. 10 years down the line if you get a job, contract etc. over someone else because you know somebody involved in the decision making process, then you will have benfitted from the so called "old boys network".
It is only generally refered to regarding public schools or good unis because it is wrongly assumed that only people from these establishments will be in the position to do somebody they know a favour like this. That for example all cambridge graduates will go into high paid jobs and form some sort of mutually beneficial network running across the country, an old boys network. The reality is that you can benefit from such a network wherever you study.
Thanks, anymore comments?
Hi, I'm considering going to the University of Edinburgh this Septmeber. I was wondering if graduates of the University of Edinburgh benefit from an 'old boys network' system which Cambridge, Oxford, Bristol and Durham graduates seem to?
if you are lucky you may happen to make a few contacts towards your chosen career path but the reality is that even in the third year most people will still have little idea what they want to do and so will neglect networking oppotunities
