Business Students To Launch Virtual Connections Careers Event

Level 3 Business students have launched Virtual Connections, an online careers event designed to bridge the gap between local employers and students of the College.

The event will be taking place from 25-27 May and students will be able to access it via SharePoint and book onto a session that interests them.

Students will have access to live employer events, pre-recorded video content and exciting competitions.

Business students worked in groups to deliver careers information that is relevant to each department within the College. They worked closely with our Industry Liaison Officers, who to connected them to local employers who provided them with careers insight. They conducted interviews with employers to develop resources, including our very own alumni Harvey Melia, owner of The Paper Mill Micropub in Sittingbourne.

Other employers involved in Virtual Connections are Kier Group and Wildwood Trust, who will have a wealth of knowledge for students to take advantage of.

Holly Pearshouse, Level 3 Business student, said: “Organising the careers event has been really challenging but has given me the opportunity to experience what it is like to plan a real-life event. We had to communicate directly with employers and were involved in every part of the event from planning to delivery. It has shown me that you have to be resilient when working in the industry, and ready to react and adapt as things do not always go as planned. It’s been a good experience and has definitely helped to improve my communication skills and build my confidence.”
