We asked a number of our Ablaze supporters from a wide variety of sectors to talk about their career pathways, what they did at school and how their current job relates to what they thought they’d be doing when they were 16.
The results are not really that surprising…not many are doing what they thought they would be doing at 16! Some have gone through a number of jobs and different pathways to get to where they are now – some went to university straight from school, others did an apprenticeship or a training course, while some left school without any qualifications but got a degree as a mature student which enabled them to start a different career path.
All these career stories show that there is no one career path, it can be a bit wiggly and go up and down, but all have ended up doing something interesting and fulfilling, showing that if you don’t first succeed, try try again and don’t give up.
