GSLP agreed to be part of an initiative called “E2E – Education to Employment” held recently in Wellington. The day offered a tangible opportunity for Year 9 & 10 students from a range of Wellington secondary schools to meet with employers from the Creative and Construction sectors. The idea was to share our knowledge – to help raise aspirations and broaden horizons for students while providing practical thoughts and ‘next steps’ towards their potential career choices.
Sigrun talked about her journey into advertising and marketing, what is involved in working in the industry, and her genuine passion for what she does. Tarah’s experience was very relatable to the students – she talked about what she was thinking at their age and stage, how she found a pathway into advertising and how much she loves it.
A worthwhile use of our time, trying to inspire the next generation into our industry!
