Career Day 2016

Glenmuir High School Career Day

 

Glenmuir High School recently staged its annual Career Day on March 22, 2016 with the theme

 

‘Hard work, the key to success’. The event was beneficial to all students, but was geared

 

towards the third, fifth and sixth formers who all will encounter significant milestones in the

 

months to come.

 

The Guidance Department did an exceptional job organising the occasion. The day started with

 

a few inspiring words from guest speaker, Steve Lawrence, who sensitised all students to the

 

fact that failure is inevitable, but determination is key.

 

Students then busily made their way to the booths of various institutions to ask questions, fill

 

out forms or just get a taste of what these organisations had to offer. Institutions included the

 

University of the West Indies, Churches Teachers College, Vector Technology Institute, Heart

 

Trust NTA, Caribbean Maritime Institute and Northern Caribbean University, among many

 

others.

 

Fifth formers engaged in mock interviews the day before in order to prepare themselves for

 

real job experiences. The students were interviewed by entrepreneurs and past students in

 

disparate fields. Guidance Counsellor, Althea Francis, stated that students were informed about

 

how to operate in a real interview and were basically guided to choose careers relating to their

 

chosen subject areas.
