The future isn't what it used to be.
Boys come in all different guises and every boy needs to be understood and valued for who he is. At Brisbane Boys' College, he is able to pursue his interests without judgement. We aim to provide an environment where boys accept guidance and support, while staying in the driver's seat and deciding their own course of action.
Brisbane Boys' College hosted its annual Careers Conference for Year 12 students to assist them in planning their futures and providing opportunities to speak directly with industry and tertiary providers.This year, we were joined by our sister school Clayfield College.
Students attended three workshop sessions throughout the day, covering Advanced Finance, Economics, Health, Medicine, Law, Creative Industries, Engineering, Music, Arts, Business, Education, Real Estate and Property, Marketing/PR, Fashion, Sport, Information Technology and Vocational Pathways.
The day opened with three inspiring keynote presentations by Microsoft Innovator and BBC Old Boy (2011) Jonathan Katahanas about his journey, Darren Buchanan, Queensland Director and Cindy Mead, Senior Manager at Hays Recruitment regarding Labour Markets, and Barbara Green, Principal St Hilda's College, about the move interstate to study at the University of Melbourne.
The Careers Fair, hosted in College Hall foyer, involved our largest contingent of industry and tertiary providers to date, and presented a wonderful opportunity for our Seniors to speak directly with universities about their pathway options and future careers.
