SSR Manchester - SSR hosts Careers & Employment Seminar
SSR hosts Careers & Employment Seminar
SSR students were recently treated to a special careers and employment seminar from 3 leading industry professionals.

George Atkins (80Hertz Studios), Mike Hayes (FAC365 and former head of ITV Technical Operations) and Andrea Quarin (ACE Centre Studio Manager and former SSR student) were on hand to offer some priceless advice and techniques to our students concerning employment within the creative industries.

The panellists gave a great insight into life and work within their industries, with discussions based around CV writing, best practise when approaching employers for jobs and work placements and helpful information about personal relations and the importance of soft skills within their respective industries.

The seminar took place in the Charlie Jones Live venue at SSR and was a great hit with the students in the audience.

Live Sound tutor Jay Beard:
"The guest lecture was a great chance for the students of SSR to interact with industry professionals sharing advice and trade secrets. The input and advice was very well received and will be hugely beneficial to those looking to get involved in the industry”

Special events such as this employment seminar are further proof of our unique industry connections and commitment to providing students with the best education and training possible.

We would like to thank George, Mike and Andrea for taking time out of their busy schedules to share their knowledge and experiences with our students.
