I’ve developed a much more detailed idea of what to expect in the workplace.
My name is Owen Fraser and I’m a student at Porlethen Academy in Aberdeen. I recently won the Judges Special Recognition Award in AstraZeneca STEM Award 2016.
What were you plans before you started the programme?
I knew I wanted to work in IT and I wanted to go to university, but the only work experience I had was limited. My Career Ready internship at Centrica was such a huge influence on me – I found it hard to adjust back to my school routine afterwards!
What have you taken from your time on the programme?
I’ve developed a much more detailed idea of what to expect in the workplace. Without Career Ready I would have been less confident about working in IT.
Winning this award is something I never would have expected when I started the programme.
