Mentoring at Loreto
Alexi and Katrina tell their Story
‘We have no doubt that our Year 11 students really gained some insight into their career of choice and developed professionally from this experience.’
Ms Alexi Kayes, Careers Advisor
In November 2020, the Loreto Normanhurst Careers Department piloted our ‘Alumnae Career Chats’ program which matched current Year 11 students with alumnae for a ‘one to one’ career discussion.
The aim of the program was to assist students in their understanding of a career path of interest, facilitated through a Q&A session with alumnae volunteers via Zoom. This virtual format allowed students to connect with ex-students from all over Australia. Students found the experience highly informative and were very grateful to participating alumnae, who also appreciated the opportunity to reconnect.
It was wonderful to see the varied career paths that our alumnae have pursued as women of influence. They shared their advice and expertise in law, psychology, business, neuropsychology, engineering, journalism, marketing, fine arts/design, nursing, HR, speech pathology, politics, international relations, teaching, dietetics, social work, physiotherapy and medicine.
