Impact Provide Careers Advice
As part of our Future Proofing Talent through Diversity project,
four of our consultants volunteered themselves for an afternoon at
the Inspire Ready for Work session with Westminster Kingsway
College. The aim of the programme is to inspire those who may be
disadvantaged in the community and prepare them for the workforce
and career in the media. Our consultants met with 30 young people
from the ages of 15-19 from varying backgrounds who share a
collective interest in the creative industries.
The afternoon consisted of interview tips for the students, mock
interviews, feedback and self-assessment. It encouraged the
students to think about their futures, what career paths they are
considering and what they can expect when they start applying for
roles and the interview processes that go along with that.
The response from the students and organisers after the session
was very positive, with the students expressing a sense of
achievement and excitement from completing the mock interviews and
the feedback provided by Impact volunteers. Our consultants also
had great things to say about the session, stepping out of their
comfort zones and feeling challenged to inspire the young men in
their journey towards their future career paths as well as being
given the opportunity to reach out to the students and supply them
with expert knowledge was a great privilege for both.
Not only did the students take away great tips, advice and more
confidence from the session but our star consultants themselves
also came away feeling inspired.
