Our panel discussion will feature five professionals from a range of industries. Each professional will be asked to answer the following questions:

1. Can you tell us about your current role, what it involves, and what your work involves on a day to day basis?
2. What experience did you have to get a role in your current profession? What skills can current students perhaps look to gain which would help them enter a field similar to yours?
3. What do you like/dislike most about your work?
4. What do you wish you had known about your position/the field before you started?
5. What advice would you give to younger students who are close to graduating and looking to enter the graduate job market?

Our panellists will be announced on this page shortly.

Our moderator for this panel will be Zara Samia, a LLB Law student at the University of Westminster, and an Operations Officer at the Afghan Student Union.
