Encourages Local Community to Follow Their Dreams
Encouraging the community to come together and chat about their career dreams, Pitman Training in Nantwich is holding a free career focused drop in session on Friday 30th September to join in with Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, to encourage people to grab life by the horns, after recent research revealed that many of us are not following our dreams in our careers.
Running from 8am til 12.00 at Pitman Training, Hospital Street, a light breakfast will be provided and community members are invited to come and share a bite to eat, gain inspiration from each other, and benefit from the guidance of the team to chat career development over cake.
Pitman is calling for any students who did not go to Uni to drop in for coffee and chat, on the back of recent research illustrating that 84% of 16-24 year olds don’t know how to turn their passions into a career, and 49% feel lack of qualifications halts them exploring aspirational career opportunities.
All are welcome though, and with the research also revealing that 45% of 25-34 year olds and 32% of 35-44 years olds wouldn’t know where to start to turn their passion into a career, Pitman is keen to get people talking in a relaxed environment to see if any lightbulb moments occur.
Centre Manager Allan Virr and his team will be on hand offering free CV and career advice and voluntary donations will be collected in support of Macmillan Cancer.
Allan said: “We know that many people have career dreams that remain just that, dreams, after they have fallen into a certain industry, or taken a certain path for whatever reason. What we want to do is help those people who still have a desire to do something different to what they are currently doing, to ensure they are truly happy in their career. Things like Macmillan fundraising make us realise that life really is too short to be going down the wrong path, and that it’s important to craft the futures we want, so we hope we can help people take action towards this over a relaxed cake and coffee”.
