The Making It Expo: A Virtual Career Fair With More Than 1000 Students With Diverse Backgrounds Registered

On November 19th, we at Generation Success hosted a successful virtual event, The Making It Expo.

We accommodated 4 sector-specific panel sessions, through which our panellists shared their career journeys, explaining how they “made it” in their industries and revealing their top tips and tricks.

We had more than 1000 Students who registered for this event. The event featured live representatives from Deloitte, Accolite Digital and AlixPartners showcasing early career opportunities and networking with our student audience.


We even had three Masterclasses:
Bertilla Chow answered the most common questions about a career in Law, and how to be more confident.

Moe Choice shared his insights and tips on career planning through a highly interactive session.

Nigel Lowe focused on unlocking true potential and initiating career transformations.

A big thank you to every one of the
1165 students who registered for the event.

A big thank you to the companies that attended: Accolite Digital, Alix Partners, PA Consulting, TD Securities, RBC Capital Markets, Culture Consultancy and Deloitte.

At the end of The Making It Expo, James Adeleke founder and CEO of Generation Success had this to say: “Of all the other reasons why we organise The Making It Expo and the numerous ways it helps the diverse and underrepresented students to network, learn industry and professional tips and land jobs that change their lives, the one reason I love the most about this event – it’s that it reminds us why are we doing this.”
