Project Speed Careering gives students a chance to experience a real occupation
Career Speed Dating was held recently at St James College, Spring Hill.
The annual event gave the school’s Year 10 students a chance to experience real occupations in a casual atmosphere, make new acquaintances and take the first step towards a career, all in just a few minutes
The day was all about students learning about different careers and what subjects would help them in senior school.
We were lucky enough to have representatives from a number of local businesses lending their experience on the day.
The students were in awe of some of the careers available to them with some students learning how to network with their new mentors and ask questions about how they achieved their career goals. Many have walked away from this event being inspired by careers they had never heard of.
The purpose of the speed careering day is to allow students exposure to different career options with the intent of assisting them in making the sometimes overwhelming decision of what career path they might like to pursue.
Students were given four minute rotations with each guest speaker. Students had the opportunity to not only gain information about the different career paths but also to ask each individual speaker any questions they may have.
