The Year 13 students hosted employers for their Careers Event on Friday 9th February. The students were fortunate enough to have two brilliant guest presenters in Lucy Hogarth (Marketing Director Consultant) and Andrew Milbourn (Sales Director Consultant). The information they gained regarding the importance of creating their own ‘personal brand’ was invaluable.
The students made the brave decision to opt for a new format in their student expression session. All students had carefully designed a stall that reflected them as individuals and celebrated their many talents. This new set-up enabled all students to have the important opportunity to interact with potential employers on an individual basis and discuss what they could bring to an employment opportunity. Once they settled in to the process, the Year 13 students relished the opportunity to interact in a personal way, and feedback from the many employers present was also positive.
Thank you Year 13 and the Business Community for organising a wonderful and successful event.
