Supported by the Pembroke Old Scholars Committee and now in its 10th year, the Careers Breakfast is a unique opportunity for students to meet and mingle with old scholars and parents who are working in the industries the students are interested in pursuing after graduation. At this year’s event held in DY Hall, 67 mentors and 130 students were in attendance and over breakfast questions were asked and career paths discussed. The industries represented on the day included medicine, engineering, social sciences and law, just to name a few!
The two 20-minute sessions allowed students to move from one industry to the next and gain valuable insight into career paths they may not have been interested in previously.
For mentors it was a wonderful opportunity to inspire the next generation but also to catch up with each other! Many mentors knew each other either as classmates or from their previous involvement in the event.
This year first-time mentors joined us from industries such as defence, performing arts and architecture, and we hope that this variety of careers and mentors will help the senior students with their vocational choices in the future.
Thank you to all mentors in attendance on the day and we look forward to seeing you again at the next Careers Breakfast in 2022!
