"Having a career plan is vital to one’s career success. It also helps me through my lifetime."
“Career preparation is truly more important than many of us realise, especially for final year students like me, acquiring presentation skills is definitely an advantage to develop my future career. The Career Success Programme equipped me with such skills, enabling me to explore my aspirations and possible paths ahead.
Equal emphasis is placed on resume-polishing in the workshop. It was really practical and useful for I could easily apply the techniques in preparing my interviews or even in daily life.
The personality test conducted also made a great part in my career preparation training. The test result gave me a clue to understand myself from a different perspective. With a clearer understanding of my personality, possible occupation direction and potential career paths are then suggested for me in the analysis, bringing me more insight in pursuing my career.
Among the different workshops in the programme, I found the one discussing how individuals of disparate personalities react in different real-life scenarios most inspiring. The study of these authentic cases allowed us to have some reflections on our own selves and understand any incongruence between the ‘real me’ and ‘portrayed me’. To me it was a valuable self-exploring journey, facilitating me to start a new chapter in life.”
