Last Friday’s Careers and Connections Evening at d’Overbroeck’s was another buzzing success. Over 50 volunteers from a wide variety of industry sectors gave their time to talk to our students, answer questions and offer advice on work experience, writing CVs, networking, which university course they’d suggest for a particular career path and…. generally getting a foot in the door!
Students from Year 9 upwards attended and went away with much to think over. A bonus from events like these, is to hear great feedback from the visitors/volunteers on their interaction with our students. Comments included: “The students were incredibly engaging”, “They were impressive and polite in their questioning”, “Once again, a super bunch of students who were well prepared, curious and who asked some smart, searching questions”, and, “Your students were incredibly polite, but more importantly, they asked brilliant questions, listening very carefully to the answers”.
