This year’s Careers Fair was one of the most varied yet, providing a wealth of information for students at both DCGS and DCHS in Years 10 to 13. As you can imagine, the rooms were packed full of students and their parents taking the opportunity to find out more about the world of work. Many of the exhibitors were either parents of students at the school, from local businesses, or just those who had given up their time to share their experiences within their industries. They were all keen to give advice and guidance about subject, career and life choices.
There was an extensive range of disciplines represented at the Fair; including engineering, law, finance, medicine and marketing, ensuring there was something interesting for everyone. In addition to stalls promoting individual jobs, Café Africa and part of the Sixth Form centre hosted representatives from universities and gap year providers, who informed older students about their many short-term options after leaving the school. On top of all this, the Milton Library held hourly talks regarding job applications and CV writing skills - both essential and beneficial tools for a successful career.
