Businessman gives advice to Sixth Form students
Businessman Phil Ewers came in to CBA to pass on advice to help Sixth Form students when they are looking for their first job.
Mr Ewers has 22 years of experience in management roles and works as a Business Development Manager for a market-leading firm involved in high-end technologies, including biometrics.
He gave a presentation to Sixth Formers which was about the process of looking for a job, applying for the position and going for an interview.
He advised students to keep an up-to-date CV of a maximum of two A4 pages and to tailor their CV to the job they are applying for.
Mr Ewers also gave the students advice on writing covering letters and networking.
He has two children who are students at CBA and offered to come in to school to speak as part of the Business Specialism initiative. Letters were sent home to parents last year asking parents in business to consider coming in to share their expertise and advice.
Teacher Alexandra Allan, who is running the initiative, said: “This visit was a valuable opportunity for students to get some advice.”
