Careers Speed Networking Success

On Wednesday 22 November, a number of girls (ranging from U4 to Sixth Form) were given the opportunity to attend a speed networking workshop, which would allow us to listen and ask questions of a number of people all in different careers.

I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and I am sure that everyone who attended did too. I was very grateful to be able to speak to a range of different people, whether they were telling me about a career I already knew about or one that was totally new to me. I now have more of an idea of what I would like to be when I’m older… although I’m struggling to choose, as every speaker made their job sound really interesting!

My friends and I not only found out about each of the speakers’ jobs and what they entailed, but we also got to ask questions, giving us an insight into how we might follow in their footsteps. The event was absolutely amazing and one I hope is held again next year; I would recommend going if it is!

A special thanks goes to all of the excellent speakers who gave up their time to come and speak to us as well as a massive thank you to the teachers who organised the event. I would also like to thank the catering staff for their excellent drinks and cookies (as usual!).
