On Wednesday, 100 students from the Politics, Economics, Business and Law Section attended a Careers & Aspirations Seminar provided by the Working Options organisation. They engage, inspire and motivate state educated sixth form students to realise their full potential and to consider professional employment opportunities.
Lauren Monk, National Development Manager for Working Options, commented:
"The main aim of Working Options sessions is to give the students an insight into the career journeys of successful people in industry. The primary aim for us as an organisation is to raise the students' self-esteem, confidence and aspirations, as well as showing them what skills employers are looking for. The students at Bexhill College were a pleasure to work with and were well mannered, engaged and had some fantastic questions for our speakers.”
Our students had the privilege of receiving advice and inspiration from Liam O'Brian, Account Manager at Salesforce. Salesforce is the world's #1 Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform.
Andy Pritchard, Head of Politics, Economics, Business & Law commented on the value of both Lauren and Liam's presentations:
"The opportunity for our students to get exposure to such industry experts was extremely valuable. Lauren and Liam inspired our students to be proactive in both creating and taking opportunities to develop their employability skills. They reinforced our message that in today's labour market, individuals have to seek opportunities to enhance their CVs and have an ability to articulate their own viewpoint.
