Google Visit

One of the most exciting parts of National Careers Week was a fantastic talk from Phil Christer, who works for Google as a Global Business Leader.  Mr Christer delivered a talk to students in Year 11 and the Sixth Form. Students who were put through a mock interview by Mr Christer rose to the challenge and were creative in their responses.

He shared interview tips with the group detailing what big organisations like Google look for in applicants including the best entry routes into Google. Students were given valuable advice about how to stand out from others and informed about different career options such as internships.

Students are aware how extremely privileged they were to witness the new ‘Google Glass’ in action. Google Glass is still currently in testing and the students who were able to try it out realise how lucky they are to have had this experience. This was a wonderful opportunity for students to engage and ask questions to prepare themselves for their future pathways.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to Phil Christer for such an inspirational visit.
