Last year, the closure of schools, colleges & universities combined with self-isolation, cancellation of career fairs, and face-to-face employer engagements have put even more pressure on young people who are preparing to transition from education into the world of work. Currently, we are transitioning into a hybrid environment with both face-to-face activities and online events.
LikeToBe is an online platform that connects young people with inspirational professionals, colleges, universities, and employers to provide advice on career paths and opportunities through videos and forums. It can be accessed anytime, anywhere, and is safe for young people and free to users. Pupils have the ability to ask questions and debate topics online, which, as well as raising young people’s aspirations and engagements with subjects, complements the Gatsby Benchmarks that secondary schools need to adhere to each year.
We are always looking for interns to support our growing team.
Areas of work:
- Event management
- School activity coordinator
- Social media
Francesca Solomon - Past Event Management Intern
“I’ve learned so much working as an Event and Manager at LikeToBe. I think having the opportunity to lead projects and take on key responsibilities in a start-up environment has accelerated my professional growth and given me the confidence to take on leadership roles in the future. I’m super grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to wear many different hats, from social media marketing to event organisation and client management. The dynamic nature of my role has allowed me to explore different interests and means every day is full of variety! I would highly recommend this role for anyone who’s passionate about learning through doing and being able to make a real impact in their day-to-day role. For someone who is just starting out in their professional career, the experiences I have gained from this dynamic role have been invaluable.”
