Speed networking gives you a fantastic opportunity to find out information about different jobs. You have the chance to find out about the backgrounds to those people doing the job, what their day-to-day job is like, what qualifications they needed to do the job, what they find interesting about their job (and equally what they don’t like about their job) and much more.
We have asked a number of guests to record a short video about themselves and their jobs. They all come from a variety of different backgrounds and work in different sectors.
Watch the videos and find out more. If you would like more information on those jobs, do some research. www.icould.com is a great website to find out more.
