Combine career advice and cake in Rushden tomorrow morning.

Pitman Training in Alfred Street is holding a free career-focused drop-in session on Friday, September 30, to join in with Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

Running from 8am to midday, a light breakfast will be provided and people are invited to come and share a bite to eat, gain inspiration from each other and benefit from the guidance of the team to chat career development over cake.

Pitman is calling for any students who did not go to university to drop in for coffee and chat, on the back of recent research illustrating that 84 per cent of 16 to 24-year-olds don’t know how to turn their passions into a career, and 49 per cent feel lack of qualifications halts them exploring aspirational career opportunities.

The research also revealing that 45 per cent of 25 to 34-year-olds and 32 per cent of 35 to 44-year-olds wouldn’t know where to start to turn their passion into a career.

Centre manager Sasha Clinton and her team will be on hand offering free CV and career advice and voluntary donations will be collected in support of Macmillan Cancer.

She said: “We know that many people have career dreams that remain just that, dreams, after they have fallen into a certain industry, or taken a certain path for whatever reason.

“What we want to do is help those people who still have a desire to do something different to what they are currently doing, to ensure they are truly happy in their career.

“Things like Macmillan fundraising make us realise that life really is too short to be going down the wrong path, and that it’s important to craft the futures we want, so we hope we can help people take action towards this over a relaxed cake and coffee.”
