Seeking Old Andrean Industry Professionals
Career and Networking Evening - Thurs 1 June
We are currently seeking EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST from Old Andreans and Hessians and to participate in Learning the Ropes: in conversation with industry professionals.
This is a flagship event produced by the OAA every second year. Industry professionals selected share their work experience and expertise in their chosen career with our senior students, their parents and carers and younger graduates.
LEARNING THE ROPES will be held on Thursday 1 June from 6.00pm–8.30pm in Chapter House and St Andrew's House. Industry professional volunteers will be invited to a light supper at 5.00 pm before the event commences, and to refreshments following.
This careers event is about conversations with students and Old Andreans - what your pathway was like, the best and worst parts of your current job, whether you have changed professions, what pitfalls you have faced, what is your best tip - in fact, what you wish you had known when you first started out.
If you would like to be involved as an industry professional on the night, please fill in your expression of interest here -
Many of our professional volunteers thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the opportunity to network with others in their industry. Here is some feedback from previous events -
"It was an exceptional evening. The students were respectful, and their parents seem to appreciate the chance to assist their kids to consider options for the future."
"It was a major benefit to the students - and to those taking part too - so a win win all round."
"It was terrific to see so many people ... I really enjoyed myself and I could tell everyone else was also really buzzing."
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Learning the Ropes is open to 2021 and 2022 graduates to attend
You may remember attending Learning the Ropes as a student at SACS. Perhaps then you didn't have a firm idea of what you would like to do when you left school, or perhaps you've started something and don't think it is going to be right for you.
You are invited to attend Learning the Ropes as an Old Andrean. You can talk to Industry Professionals to get a clearer idea of the direction you are heading, or just take the opportunity to network with professionals in the area you have chosen.
Keep an eye on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and your emails to know how to book.
