Year 12 students enjoyed a Careers event hosted by the OGA on Wednesday 17th June.

Three Old Girtonians returned to share their professional and life experiences since leaving Girton with our Year 12 students.

Students heard from a media professional, a GP Resident and a former School Captain in his final year of a Bachelor of Science.

Will Hogan (2013) completed a double degree with a Bachelor in Journalism and a Bachelor of Business. He now works as a Journalist/Reporter for WIN News and shared tips on how to best get your foot in the door in an often volatile profession.

Dr Katie Snow (2007) is a mere 6 weeks away from becoming a GP, having completed a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery and Bachelor of Advanced Medical Science at Melbourne University. She spoke about her experiences as a rural doctor and how unforeseen circumstances changed the direction of her career path for the better.

Our third speaker was Joseph Baldwin (2016), who midway through his first year of a Bachelor of Commerce at The University of Melbourne, realised that his real passion lay elsewhere and switched over to a Bachelor of Science (Biotechnology) in his second year. He reflected on what he wished he had known during his VCE years and had some astute advice for our Year 12 students.

It was an informative and fun afternoon, where our students enjoyed hearing from alumni and gaining some insights into what their future may look like.

The OGA is very grateful for the time that the three speakers gave to our Year 12 students.
