Choosing your Career
One of the most pivotal moments in one’s life is the moment at which one has to decide what he or she wants to pursue as a career. That moment usually comes with a great amount of doubt, the wish for advice and a certain anxiety for what the future holds.
We interviewed Devon Sumner, who has done a great job at navigating the path from Higher Apprentice to a full working member on the A380 project. She was previously the winner of the Higher Apprentice of the Year award for Wales and the 2014 Royal Aeronautical Society Final Year Undergraduate prize. We ask her how she approached key decisions in her career and how she experienced her first job, and what advice she gives to young people looking to decide on a career.
