How to Choose Your Career?

To decide your career, it is essential that you know about your strengths, weaknesses, interests etc. A job that looks attractive in all aspects does not guarantee that it suits you the best.

There are 4 steps to help you decide your career path:

Step 1: Get to know yourself
Step 2: Use services provided by Career Centre
Step 3: Equip yourself with the necessary skills
Step 4: Start Job Hunting?

Step 1: Get to know yourself?

You could always take an inventory of the skills and experiences you have, the things that interest you. Gather the items and check which industry or position best matches your interests.

You might get started with the help of the following questions:

  • What do you really want to do in life?
  • What do you expect your life to look like in five, ten, twenty years from now?
  • In what part-time or summer jobs have you been most interested? Why?
  • What led you to choose your field of major study?
  • What academic subjects did you like best/ least? Why?

In addition, we organize Career Advisory Programme for freshmen to explore their career interests and facilitate them to develop career plans. Besides, the Directed Career Search Programme every year to help you locate your career interest, and develop work-related skills. Based on your preferences, set your career goals and decide the steps you need to take to move forward to your career path.

Step 3: Equip yourself with the necessary skills

After identifying your career goals, you should participate in programmes that expose you to the relevant industry. In light of this, we have organized

  • Career Mentorship Programme
  • Global Attachment Programme
  • Local Attachment Programme
  • Metropolitan Attachment Programme
  • Effective Presentation Programme

These Programmes can not only help you get a better understanding on the world of work, but also contribute to sharpen your working skills.
