Students Learn the Value of Networking at Grad Brunch & University Transition Day
Posted 05/16/2012 03:50PM

“It’s never too early to look ahead… and it’s never too late to stop and change direction,” explained keynote speaker Caitlin Watson 2001 at the Grad Brunch and University Transition Day on May 16. Having worked for six years in advertising and account services, Caitlin realized that she was not happy in her current career and decided to pursue something that was more meaningful to her: working with teens affected by mental illness.

Caitlin spoke about the importance of building strong networks and using those networks to learn about and get into different career paths. She encouraged the students to use the resources the Havergal Old Girls Association (HOGA) provides in career mentoring and connecting with other professional women.

In attendance at the event were Grade 12 Havergal students and Old Girls from a variety of post-secondary institutions, including Harvard, McGill, Western, Guelph and Queen’s. These Old Girls participated in a panel discussion on university, where the current students had the opportunity to ask questions about life as a university student. Later, the panel broke out into smaller groups to have less formal conversations about their specific programs and schools with the Grade 12 students.

This annual event is hosted by the Havergal Old Girls Association (HOGA) and the Guidance Department and provides soon-to-be graduates with an opportunity to learn more about life beyond Havergal.
