At the end of the summer term, employees from executive search company Odgers Berndtson partnered with us to run a day of interactive employability skills workshops for Luton Sixth Form College students at their London offices.
One of the students said:
“This was an amazing experience and definitely, one I won’t ever forget, I gained a lot of knowledge on interviews, CVs and many other things.”
Staff from the college were equally positive:
“The staff had really pulled out all the stops to make our students feel comfortable in an unfamiliar environment and to impart invaluable information on CV’s, interview technique and good practice on social media. I hope that many other schools/colleges and more of our students are able to experience going into a workplace and hearing from employers directly.”
A big thank you to Jane Dessar, Partner at Odgers Berndtson for getting staff on board to make this amazing day happen. If your company would like to run something similar for students, we’d love to hear from you.
