Students from years 11, 12 and 13 were able to have an informal Q&A with former Head Girl Kate Oliver about her experiences on the Boots Graduate Scheme. Kate shared valuable information about her 2 year graduate post where she is spending 6 months in 4 different business areas so that she can experience them all and ultimately decide on the area to pursue on a permanent basis. She stressed the importance of broadening experiential learning. One of her interviews involved her describing situations where she showed leadership and problem solving. From this, she drew from experiences during her World Challenge expedition at the Dixie. Kate stressed the importance of extra-curricular activity and that, of course, academic achievement is important. However, the ‘person’ is made visible through additional pursuits and Boots were drawn to applicants who showed an energy for mind broadening endeavours and who relished new experiences.
