Career Forum


Overview

The Career Forum Society aims:

  • To give members guidance and inspiration concerning their options for further education and occupation after schoo
  • To discuss university entrance requirements, both local and international
  • To provide advice on skills such as CV skills development, university preparation, and preparation for interviews
  • To showcase the options and opportunities available out there, by bringing in speakers from various sectors of "life after school" - this includes introducing working to help set up the Career Expo held at Bishops every second year, as well as making members aware of other Career Expos hosted by other parties in the area during the year
  • To hear success stories from past pupils (this year, we have had Joe Kahn come and chat to the boys)
  • To better equip the Bishops boy to become worthy of pursuing the career of their dreams (Function over Form)
