Y12 and Y13 boys at Bolton School enjoyed an afternoon with Old Boltonians Peter Acton (1964-71) and David Seddon (1960-71). The former pupils spoke to the boys about the transition from university to the world of work. The afternoon was part of an Old Boys' mentoring scheme during which students will receive help in developing their CVs, with interview technique and general advice. The audience was told that employers want to know what you can bring to their business and whether you will fit into their culture and are seeking to recruit employees that they can train and develop. The Sixth Formers were told to think about examples of their own leadership, reliability, communication and team player skills as well to be enthusiastic and to ask intelligent questions based on diligent pre-interview research of the hiring company.

The scheme, run by the School’s Development Office, will see a number of mentors offering their professional experience in fields such as Journalism, Engineering, Law, Medicine, Banking and Property to support young undergraduates on an informal, one-to-one basis.
