Last Friday evening three OFs returned to talk to Sixth Formers about their experiences since leaving the College.
Bethany Burgoyne (Victoria, 04-09) talked about the drama course she began before moving on to study fine art in London. Jon Waghorne (Stradbroke, 03-08) studied History at York and has gone into insurance, but will soon be going back to university to study diplomacy at Oxford. Rob Baird (Ziegele, 91-95) is Commercial Director at Eurosport and Euronews, and he was able to offer guidance on how applicants can make themselves appealing to employers. All of them gave interesting and amusing accounts of what they have learnt, and the message from them all was clear: don’t be afraid to make mistakes, take care over making yourself a good prospect for employers, and make sure you feel comfortable with what you do.
It was good to hear from these OFs, and they seemed to enjoy their return to Fram!
