Virtual Careers Fair
Need an inspiring and effective careers fair? Leave it to Millie!
Every school wants to inspire their students with a great careers program, but finding inspiring speakers on relevant subjects and organising events can be incredibly time consuming.
At Millie we understand this, which is why we created the Virtual Careers Fair, a menu of online careers, study and work skills presentations and panels, all delivered by our unique global Millie Mentor network of stellar students, educators and industry professionals. They bring their experiences gained at top universities and great companies from around the world to your students.
Our goal is to make the process completely stress-free for you and create a first class, inspiring experience for your students.
- A fully online experience - Sessions delivered over zoom, interactive, moderated by our team to ensure that everything runs on time and students get to ask their questions
- Great choice of subjects - We offer multiple concurrent streams so that there are subjects to engage all students (and parents!)
- Making communication simple - Your own webpage with a full agenda, panel and speaker details, and session booking links
- Instant feedback - An online rating system allows you to see reviews for each panel and feedback comments from attendees
Case Study: ACS Egham
On 24 May 2021, Millie gathered over 30 international mentors to share their academic and career experiences and what they've learned along the way with the students of ACS Egham, an IB school just outside London with 600 students aged 4-18. It is one of the four ACS International schools in the UK and Qatar.
In consultation with the school's counsellors, we created a full morning of live stream panel discussions and presentations to help their 10th-12th grade students discover new opportunities, potential careers and study paths.
The morning kicked off with an introduction by the school Principal, Ms Leanne Larkin. Students and parents were then free to choose between panels led by younger mentors in further education and panels led by professional experts targeting different work skills.
We ran an online survey to take instant feedback for every panel and fed that information back to ACS Egham in our post event review session.
Our speaker rating was 4.6 out of 5!
“Working with Millie allowed us to connect with a variety of young, dynamic and engaging professionals from a range of industries. This real-world insight has enhanced our careers guidance programme greatly. From a logistical perspective, the team at Millie takes a lot of the stress out of delivering well-organised, high-quality careers events, and we look forward to working with them again!”
Adam D’Arcy, University Counsellor, ACS Egham
“The interaction was really great and the webinar was information packed.”
“This was my favourite stream that I’ve attended today. This was a field that I was interested in and now I definitely want to do my own research into the topic and consider it further for university! Thank you!”
“University is not as scary as it seems. I shouldn’t spend the next two years worrying about where my life is going to go.”
“Curiosity is very important and you should keep exploring the things you like outside of what you do at university.”
“You need to expose yourself to different styles of work.”
