The World of Work: what is it and how do I get into it?
The Wings of Hope present an afternoon of speed mentoring by top career professionals to help you answer that all important question.
With youth unemployment at a 19 year high, job opportunities and graduate employment is a major concern for students at schools and university.
Choosing subjects at school and university are important decisions that you make. They often determine which career path you go down. But making decisions can be scary!
What do I really want to be? Do I even know what that is? Do I know anyone who’s doing that?
The Wings of Hope believes in empowering through education and therefore the result of education which is: the world of work.
On 11th February we are hosting a free session at the Royal College of Surgeons in London where students can meet industry professionals from over 30 industries.
We have developed a fun and innovative speed mentoring system so that you can have a taste of a variety of industries, hearing it direct from the professionals.
Many of professionals are young and have recently been through the university and graduate recruitment system. They will offer advice on university choices, degree choices in addition to talking about their jobs. This will be an interactive session with the opportunity to exchange details with your “mentor” at the end so you can continue dialogue on your careers.
