Guest Lecture by Parysa Hosseini-Sech

Business

On Thursday 17 November, the Business department welcomed Parysa Hosseini-Sech, HR manager at telecommunications company Onecom, into college to talk to students. 

She gave the students an insight of what it is like to work in HR for a nationwide company, including topics such as managing large numbers of people, improving relationships between colleagues, and how modern lifestyles are changing the working world; from flexible working to employee benefits.

Parysa's talk also highlighted the vast number of positions within one company and how someone can start in one area and then expand their skills and knowledge by undertaking additional training to move into a different area. She gave an example of one of her employees starting in IT and then retraining and moving to sales where she has since flourished.

She also explained Onecom's interview process and talked about how employees are selected, giving students an insight into what they might experience for themselves when going into employment.

It was an informative and eye-opening talk and we look forward to welcoming Parysa back into college in February for our Careers Fair!
