Lincoln College Open Day
09 November, 2019 – 10:00AM - 2:00PM
Entrepreneur Mark Jarvis shared his business start-up tips and employability advice with electrical students who want to stand out from the crowd in their career.
With over 20 years' experience of starting, building, managing and selling his own businesses, Mr Jarvis also provides coaching for companies looking to expand.
Around half of electrical students from Newark College go on to be self-employed or run small to large businesses after graduating. Bearing this in mind Mr Jarvis shared his knowledge to inspire and challenge the mindset of current learners in a recent session he delivered at the College. They were also given guidance on how to successfully market themselves to potential employers and customers in the future.
Mr Jarvis said: “I am delighted to share my knowledge with the students to give them a real-world perspective of employability from an employers and employees viewpoint.”
Electrical Engineering Lecturer, David Inger said: “I thought it would make a difference to the students learning to have the perspective of an employer like Mark Jarvis.
“He offered serious food for thought for our learners to take away and use critical thinking to get ahead of the competition in their respective futures.”
After attending the session, student, John Major said, “I’m a changed man!”
