How will the session run? 

Career WorkOut introduces students to work guests from different work backgrounds so they can find out what it’s really like in different jobs. Students simply ask guests qustions about their personal experiences of work.

You’ll join 7-12 other work guests to answer questions from small groups of 3-5 students in a carousel of 6-7 minute interviews, a bit like speed-networking!  They’ll ask you open questions about your job, how you got it and what it’s like for you.  When the time is up the students move to the next guest, and so on until the end of the session.

Are there ID or vetting requirements? No, there is no need for ID or vetting because a Worktree facilitator and a school teacher will be present at all times so guests will be supervised. Please ensure that you are never left alone with a student(s).

What can/can't I bring to the event? You don't need to bring anything, just be ready to answer the students' questions honestly. You can bring business cards for networking.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable? If you can't make it, please try to find a replacement and contact Bhupinder as soon as possible.
