Royal Holloway Management student and Apprentice star, Laura Moore, will be returning to the College from 6.30pm on Monday (21 March) in the Windsor Building Auditorium to battle it out with other candidates from the popular BBC show.
Laura will be joined by former finalist and English alumna Debra Barr and Raleigh Addington to debate the hot topic of student employability. The audience will get a chance to fire questions at the celebrity panellists and get top tips from the go-getting entrepreneurs.
Laura, who describes herself as ‘passionate about inspiring other young people to believe in themselves’, suspended her studies at Royal Holloway to pursue a less traditional path to success. She is now involved with several start-up projects, co-founding the international mobile technology business, Service Heartbeat.
As universities strive to show how they can provide value for money, improving graduate prospects is a high priority. Royal Holloway is committed to providing its students with the resources to think creatively about their future career paths through contact with inspirational figures, like Laura, who have a powerful story to tell.
The panellists will be discussing what employers are looking for and how to stand out from the crowd, creative ways students can think about careers, and empower them to take action rather than dwelling on the narrative that ‘there are no jobs,’ equip students with the skills, positive energy and enthusiasm to approach finding a job with a fresh approach, as well as sharing alumni career success stories at Royal Holloway.
The event is free to attend and everyone is welcome.
