Year 8 Careers Day
Seven employers spend the day with year 8 pupils
Year 8 Careers Day.
Today, seven employers from the Construction, Medical, Legal, Accountancy, Engineering, Scientific and Financial industries, spent the day with Year 8 pupils.
Representatives from the NHS Harlow, Hill Developers (construction), Price Bailey (tax/auditing/accountancy), One Wealth (investment/finance), GSK, Linklaters LLP and Inflite Engineering very kindly gave their time and expertise to lead sessions with Year 8.
Divided into groups and having a session with each employer, the boys heard all about how to get into each industry, what qualifications they need to aim for, the typical salary of someone working in that particular industry, career progression and what kind of work each one does and the rewards and job satisfaction from each line of work.
During the last session of the day, they boys were given a questionnaire designed to identify their strengths and weaker areas, and what types of careers may suit them.
