Harry came back smiling – Harry Miller, White Clarke Creative
Harry Miller, Junior Web Developer at White Clarke Creative, recently attended a Career WorkOut session.
After the event he said: “I found it a great opportunity to explain to students how the world of work functions. I certainly didn’t have anyone explain this to me when I attended school.
” It gives a good insight into what students want to know and how you’re able, as a working adult, to give the answers to their questions. I felt that all the volunteers were able to provide them with some clarity about what to expect. Although I think some students appeared to be a little worried when I recommended that they study A-level Mathematics if they wanted to do Computer Science at university!”
“I would certainly do another WorkTree event and would thoroughly recommend that everyone do the same.”
Pete Elliston, Head of White Clarke Creative, said: “Harry came back smiling after his first Worktree event. He’s someone that diligently and quietly goes about his work. I was over the moon to see him speak so animatedly about the event. We will leverage Harry’s experience to gain further interest from the wider team to support this great initiative.”
