About this video

Julie Stewart, Director of the recruitment company TD Group talks about how useful her Business Administration college course was for the jobs she has done.

She says she wanted to be in the army or a long distance lorry driver when she was at school but decided against it, and talks about securing her first job in a publishing company by writing to lots of local businesses to enquire if they had any vacancies. She describes her workplace in the serviced offices located on Silverstone Park and how it is great for meeting people.

She advises that it is useful to consider careers that historically may not have been typical for your gender, and recommends that if you have an idea about what you want to do as a job you should really go for it!
