Careers Evening 2024

28 Mar 2024
OC News

There was a buzz of excitement in the air at Mayfield on Thursday 29th February as National Careers Week got off to an early start with the annual Careers Information Evening. 

With over 100 girls signing up to listen to three career speakers of their choice, from a wide range of career sectors, the evening certainly inspired them and gave them the opportunity to reflect on careers they may not have previously considered. The evening also provided the girls with an excellent opportunity to network with professionals, allowing them to forge valuable connections and possible future work experience, as well as confirm career decisions for some of the older girls.

A very big thank you to all the OCs, parents and outside organisations who very kindly gave up their time to prepare and deliver the talks. 

"I found that the careers evening was really inspiring, I particularly found the entrepreneur talk very powerful because I felt that she got her message across very nicely, in a way that was not just bullet points and facts but her experiences and the things she has done in her life to explain how she has been in the entrepreneur side of life. Plus, she's an OC!" - Jemima, Year 10

"I was really inspired from all the careers talks I attended yesterday and I am very grateful for this opportunity to get an insight into careers I want to enter, and I was able to ask specific questions to learn more about the career." - Charlotte, Year 12

"I found the Careers evening very informative, all of the talks were very helpful and it gave me a new perspective of what I might want to do in the future. The engineering talk was very interesting as I found out a lot more of the creative side of the field that I wasn't aware of before." - Anna, Year 11

"I was particularly inspired by two quotes from two of the talks that I listened to. In the talk about media apprenticeships, the speaker said that the most important thing to take away from the talk is that we shouldn't be ashamed of our differences and should embrace them instead. In the entrepreneur talk, a great quote that resonated with me was 'My teacher told me that we were not here to become secretaries. We were here to become the type of women that businesses would fail without'." - Breanna, Year 12
