For Purpose attended UCD’s Speed Networking Event on Wednesday 31st March, as part of their Social Impact Recruitment week. Over 260 students signed up for their Careers Week and we received significant engagement during our presentation.
Our For Purpose manager, Adrian, gave an overview of the For Purpose Programme and nonprofit sector. He highlighted the different career paths available to potential graduates through For Purpose.
Three of our For Purpose Graduates, Conall, Eilís and Emily, outlined what attracted them to the nonprofit sector. They also explained their role, what they have learned on the For Purpose programme and key tips for students interested in applying.
The session moved into individual breakout rooms with smaller groups of students for a Q&A discussion with the graduates. This provided students with a chance to ask the For Purpose graduates for any further tips.
Many students had questions surrounding the recruitment process and when to apply. Each question was answered by our For Purpose graduates in considerable detail, leaving the students with both an insight into For Purpose and the nonprofit sector.
