MWH Treatment is always encouraging young people to look at engineering as a career path. Few careers have as many opportunities and possibilities, so at events like career fairs, it gives us a chance to share everything that is great about engineering and MWH Treatment. We recently attended the careers fair at Wycombe High School in the UK.
The Wycombe based girls school hosted students from 5 different schools in the area, giving them a chance to meet representatives from over 80 companies and universities. MWH Treatment has been a regular supporter of the careers fair as spoke to the 450 students in attendance about the wonderful world of engineering and what an exciting career path it is.
MWH employees Tom Shevchuk, Estimating Manager, Claire Barnes, Senior Process Engineer, and Isabelle Lewin, Principal Process Engineer, represented us this year and they were pleased to see the amount of interest taken in engineering, as well as noticing a real buzz in the atmosphere at the event. The students were eager to engage in conversations and investigate a variety of potential career and higher education paths.
Apprentice, graduate and placement schemes were the topic of conversation for many of the students as they attempted to feel out a career which appealed to them. Our team noted a greater interest than usual, perhaps indicating an uptake in students looking at engineering as a career path. There was plenty of attention paid to our table as students took away literature and asked lots of questions, which was excellent to see.
Tom Shevchuk thoroughly enjoyed the event, “The students were absolutely delightful to talk to and will make great employees in the future no matter what discipline they choose. Careers fairs like these are always a huge success for us because giving advice and helping younger people find what they want to do in life is always worthwhile. We will be at plenty more career events in the future!”
