Careers Takeover 2022
Episode 8: Zino Khalfaoui
On March 9, 2022 David Lipington from the Student Services Team hosted a very special careers themed takeover in honour of National Careers Week 2022.
Throughout the day David and colleagues in the Student Services Team interviewed various professionals around the routes into their careers, and discussed what the realities of the day-to-day roles are, and the types of skills required to perform it effectively. Some of the themes of this day were around wider careers related issues such as those effecting students who have English as a second language, care leavers, issues faced by women in the workplace, and how to manage your mental health and well-being whilst going through that all important job application process.
Working within the community is diverse and rewarding and a very accessible option for those thinking about a career change. Joining David Lipington and David Barnett live in the studio for National Careers Week to discuss this, the transferable skills needed, and the importance of community work and the role local organisations can play is Zino Khalfaou community development officer at the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
