"I am a PhD student and I had to interview people with expertise relating to my subject research area. I contacted Jean Almond the Alumni Engagement Manager at Plymouth University to see if she could help. She introduced me to three alumni who were working within the area of my subject research. They were all very happy to be contacted and agreed to be interviewed. They provided me with some very valuable information relating to my subject research questions. Their contribution was a big help towards the completion of my qualitative interviewing stage. Thank you to all the alumni for being such a great help."
