Career advice from Christ Church old boys
Published on: 19 June 2016
One hundred and thirty boys discussed their career aspirations with ‘young’ old boys at the fourth annual Year 12 Career Breakfasts held in the Old Boys’ Gallery last week. The joint initiative between the Old Boys’ Association (OBA) and the School gives boys an opportunity to ask questions of alumni from a range of fields.
Thirty-three old boys representing professions in business and commerce; engineering, architecture and arts; and health science participated in the three breakfasts held over three mornings.
Some of the general advice given included: do not panic, you do not need to know the occupation you are going to pursue at the end of Year 12; a general degree is a good idea; make the most of all opportunities, any experience is a good experience; and try to get some work experience, employers are looking for this.
