Gearing up for the World of Work! Gain critical thinking and interview skills
On 26 June, our Careers Program 2022 ACO participants jumpstarted their careers in a future world of work! Our students drafted their first CVs and learnt to review them under guidance. Then they applied for job shadowing opportunities at select local companies! We are so excited for them to get their first taste of work in August!
Thank you to Ms. Jana Sin from ARCH Education for giving our students a crash course in critical thinking skills and interview skills, helping them gain the practical techniques and confidence to deal with the most complex interview questions. “These skills could not be learned elsewhere,” said one participant. “Thank you so much!”
ACO alumni also took part in the day, offering Job Shadowing 101, in which they shared tips from their first-hand experiences at work to prepare students for their job shadowing opportunities in August. It was inspiring to see the ACO spirit of giving back being passed on!
