ENGAGE: Career Preparation Day
Mentees learnt about the importance of planning for their future
The Career Preparation Day equipped mentees with first-hand career development knowledge. The workshop trained them to develop essential soft skills as well as business skills vital to success. The day of comprised 3 sessions – Career Planning, CV & Cover Letter Writing, and Business Etiquette.
The day’s activities were an important eye-opening experience for the mentees as the majority of them had limited access to career counciling. These workshops were essential to their later involvement in the programme as they would need to formally apply for work placement opportunities in July and August.
