The Halton Industry Education Council is hosting two evening meetings in March at the Burlington Convention Centre, one for women and one for men. The essential idea as I understand it is that students who are thinking about their career options will have an opportunity to hear what various kind of occupations are like from people who have been employed in these occupations. The format is meant to be informal and unrehearsed.
Please look at the HIEC website for further information. If you know of other initiatives like this please let us all know.
