To provide students with meaningful encounters with employers, schools can implement the following strategies:
Mock Interviews – Organise mock interview sessions where students can experience the interview process firsthand. This helps them build confidence and understand the skills required in a professional setting.
Careers Day- Organise careers days where professionals from different industries visit the school to interact with students, sharing insights and answering questions about their careers.
Networking- Host networking events where students can take part in conversations with employers and employees, fostering connections that can be valuable in the future.
School Trips- Organise visits to workplaces, allowing students to observe professionals in their daily roles. This provides a glimpse into various industries and exposes students to potential career paths.
