Strong Foundations — Amazing Futures
OC Zoom Careers Day
Our thanks to Old Collegians Dr Mabel Yan (2011), Maddy Costello (2005), Dr Alison Chong (2008), Amy Nhan (2006) and Dr Fiona Bateman (2000) who shared their inspiring study and work journeys with Year 11 and 12 in May.
Their encouraging advice across a range of careers, medicine, teaching, employment law and veterinary science was really appreciated and highly informative.
They accepted the extra challenge this year of presenting in video format which was then livestreamed to students through Wyse.
Personal stories filled with unexpected career outcomes, relocation interstate or overseas, incorporating one’s passions into a portfolio career as well as the day to day aspects of the world of work are important messages for our young women to hear as they contemplate what lies ahead for them.
Students and staff are very grateful for any opportunities to interact with OCs and share their experiences.
