Wow what a day!
Today I have been working in the Careers Advice Lounge at the What Next? Career Live event at Olympia, London.
It was a jammed packed day. So many young people to see, I’ve almost lost my voice!
I was part of a team of qualified Careers Advisers offering FREE career advice & useful tips to help young people get that dream role or make positive choices about their next steps.
I was impressed by the way in which many young people spoke & asked questions to help them to think about their future career/course choices. I had many conversations about:
• Conducting their job search
• Choosing the right career path
• Effectively filling in job applications
• Preparing for interviews
• Avoiding the most common mistakes school leavers make when applying for jobs
• Creative ways to attract employers’ attention
• Making the transition from school to the workplace.
There were also people from some of the UK’s top employers & universities, great to see so many young people there making plans & taking action.
Lots of curious young people out there!
So happy to have been involved in this fantastic event.
