A Student's View

The exposure lectures at the CEIL® are something quite innovative at Budmouth. These lectures can vary not only on subject, but audience, purpose etc. adding a variety of depth to them, making each one a new and interesting experience.

They have been on many different topics in the past including mobile technology, what is it is, what it does, and how it affects our future, and on careers in areas such as retail, commercial banking, stock broking, and tax advice.

The lectures are given by university candidates, business owners, managers and others from the surrounding area who come in for our benefit. They want to inform us on our career choices, their
work and a wide breadth of things that no other school or college in the area can provide.

We have all benefited from the lectures in some way, as they give us information on what it’s
like to work in various industries, how to begin hunting for a job, and teaching us how
to get the job we’re seeking.

This is just one of the amazing opportunities that being an intern at the CEIL® gives us access to.
