Given the precariousness of the current job market both here in the UK and globally, students are looking further than the traditional career paths and are exploring more innovative alternative solutions to their job search.
Generate consists of an interactive skills development programme and an exciting series of networking events which, together, offer a unique platform from which students can learn, market test their ideas, and identify key relationships within their immediate and wider entrepreneurial community.
For those who are considering social enterprise as a potential career path there is a brand new scheme that focuses solely on this field. LSE Careers will be working closely with a dedicated team at UnLtd to provide funding and support specifically for social entrepreneurs.

Generate mentoring programme
Our industry-specific pool of alumni entrepreneurs are available to deal with one-off queries or to work with you over the longer-term to ensure that you have all the resources at your disposal to help you launch and develop a successful start-up.
We will be holding weekly sector-specific mentoring sessions on Friday lunchtimes during term-time covering numerous industries including FinTech, food/beverage, education and social enterprise and you can sign up to these meetings on CareerHub.
We will be launching a platform in October where you can view all of the alumni profiles and their expertise. Winners of our funding competitions will also be set up with a selected mentor as part of their winners package.
Given the impressive pool of talent that LSE has to offer, we would like to offer students and alumni an opportunity to share their thoughts, ideas and ambitions with a wider entrepreneurial community via the Generate blog.
If you have an entrepreneurial subject that you would like to discuss or perhaps an experience from your entrepreneurial journey you would like to share we would love to hear from you.
