Year 10 students participated in the Career Industry Professional Talks which were held on Thursday 26 April in the Somerset Sports Centre’s Hall of Fame.
We had 17 guests from the OC alumni, parent body and local community, who represented 14 different industries. Industries included: Psychology, Education, Science, Engineering, Business, Law, Finance, Architecture, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Trade and Construction, Aviation, Hospitality, and the Australian Defence Force.
This an annual event, organised by OC’s Careers Counsellor in the Student Support Services team, and it is part of the Year 10 career education program which helps students prepare for their subject selections.
It is an opportunity for students to choose three industries of interest to them, and participate in three, 20-minute rotations where they can ask questions about the nature of the career in the ‘every day’.
Students found the talks insightful and practical. Our guests are always impressed with our students’ informed questions and fabulous manners.
