St Joseph’s Con­vent Stu­dents Get Ca­reer Guid­ance from Flow Team

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Over the years Flow has given many young St. Lu­cians the op­por­tu­nity to ben­e­fit from real-life work ex­pe­ri­ence and be­come part of the Flow Fam­ily through full­time em­ploy­ment and by way of in-house, work-train­ing ap­pren­tice­ship pro­grams.

This week the com­pany demon­strated, once again, that is com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing on what it con­sid­ers to be a vi­tal part of its mis­sion, namely to im­prove lives by giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity, and by sup­port­ing the na­tion's schools and the devel­op­ment of the youth.

Last week a group of for­mer St. Joseph's Con­vent stu­dents who are cur­rently em­ployed with Flow paid a visit to their alma mater at the in­vi­ta­tion of the school. While there they met with the form one stu­dents and had a chat with them dur­ing which they en­cour­aged the stu­dents to take their ed­u­ca­tion se­ri­ously and start ex­plor­ing op­tions for fur­ther­ing their stud­ies and choos­ing their ca­reers. The theme of the ses­sion was “She Be­lieved That She Could So She Did.”

The stu­dents wel­comed the vis­i­tors and lis­tened with rapt at­ten­tion as the Flow team dis­cussed with them the im­por­tance of hav­ing the right at­ti­tude in their quest to be pro­fes­sion­als, and ex­plained why they must be will­ing to make sac­ri­fices in or­der to achieve their dreams. They were also given use­ful tips on how to de­velop per­se­ver­ance and per­sonal dis­ci­pline and how to go about mak­ing a de­ci­sion on a ca­reer path.

It was a highly in­ter­ac­tive and fun-filled dis­cus­sion and the stu­dents said they en­joyed ev­ery minute of it. Sev­eral of them said they found it to be quite in­spir­ing and thought the ideas dis­cussed would be a great help to them. Flow St. Lu­cia Mar­ket­ing & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Ex­ec­u­tive, Sher­ma­lyn Si­donie-John was also part of the vis­it­ing Flow team. She said they thor­oughly en­joyed their time with the stu­dents.

Girl power! As in­ter­na­tional Day of the Girl was cel­e­brated last week, Flow took the op­por­tu­nity to reach out to these smil­ing stu­dents.
