We are thrilled to report that the annual OB Careers Fair was once again a resounding success. Now in its thirteenth year, over 60 OBs, parents and friends of the School came to give career guidance to over 200 boys and girls from Bedford School, Bedford Girls’ School, Mark Rutherford and Bedford Academy on their profession and industry. From doctors and lawyers to pilots, journalists and investment bankers, it was wonderful to have such a wide range of fields represented. This year, Senior Marketing Manager and Marketing Week’s Masters of Marketing ‘Rising Star of the Year’, Jawad Safdar (02-09), also gave an informative presentation on how to ‘Maximize Your Potential on Linkedin’.
We are extremely grateful for everyone’s support – the students really did gain a great deal from the evening. Horizons were broadened and questions answered in a friendly, informal atmosphere.
The career representatives were just as impressed with the students, and we’ve received some extremely positive feedback on their engagement:
“Many thanks for organising a great evening. The enthusiasm from the boys/girls and their respective parents was fantastic!”
If you couldn’t make it this year but are interested in getting involved, please do contact us at the OB Club and help inspire young people who might be considering your profession.
