A Packed Lunch with the University of the Highlands and Islands
Fri 24 March 2017, 12:45 – 14:00 GMT
As a follow on from the ‘Packed Lunch’ series we are holding another lunchtime meeting to bring together students and employers, in the same room, to chat through career and employability options.
This event's guest speaker will be Kirsty Pryer, managing director and system administrator at Calico UK. Calico UK is an Internet Service Provider (ISP) based in Cromarty but with a global reach. On a day to day basis, Kirsty, who is a graduate from the University of the Highlands and Islands, is responsible for the sales and technical aspects of the business. On the day she will give some background to Calico and her own career as well as explaining what career opportunities there are in the digital sector in the Highlands.
To provide an alternative perspective, students will also be invited to participate, asking questions of the Kirsty. Students will be allocated approximately 10-15 minutes to outline their points. As a guide questions could include:
- here are my skills - what can you do for me?
- this is who I am and why I’m studying this subject
- how can you help me achieve my career goals?
A facilitated discussion will follow allowing other sector attendees and students in the audience to join in.
Lunch will be provided allowing networking opportunities for all. The event will also be available by video conference across the university network. To book a connection via video conference please email us.
The event will take place in the lecture theatre at Inverness College UHI, 1 Inverness Campus, Inverness at 12.45pm on the Friday 24 March. The session will be finished by 2pm.
