It’s not often that high school students mix with business leaders in a boardroom on the 30th floor of a high-rise city building, but that’s exactly what twenty-one Year 11 students recently did. Beacon Foundation and Accenture combined to deliver the Beacon Perform program in the Accenture offices in the city. Dressed in their blazers and ties our students were not out of place as they discussed what is needed to succeed in the corporate world. Students learned about job interview techniques and spoke with business people to gain insight into careers in the corporate sector. Each student left the day with a better understanding of how they can be prepared for the world of work. Thank you to the people at Beacon and to the wonderful staff at Accenture for hosting us.
