A total of ­95 Science undergraduates participated in the well-received Alumni-Student Networking Evening on 10 March. This annual event was organised by the Faculty of Science in collaboration with the Centre for Future-ready Graduates and the NUS Students’ Science Club Alumni Relations Sub-Committee.

 

Six distinguished alumni mentors from various industries were invited to share their career experiences. This year, a new segment, a panel discussion, was introduced. The students had an insightful discussion with Ms TAN Hark Kah from eBay; Mr Sean KONG from Halogen Foundation Singapore, a non-profit organisation which inspires young people in leadership; Mr David TAN from pharmaceutical company AbbVie Pte Ltd; Mr PAN Zuoren from CEB Singapore, a best practice insights and technology company;Mr Eugene SIM from Singapore General Hospital and Ms Grace LIN from the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). After the panel discussion, students had the opportunity to network and interact with the alumni over dinner.

 

An inaugural fringe service – “The Best Shot” by the NUS Students’ Science Club Alumni Relations Sub-Committee was launched at the networking evening.  Professional headshots and make-up services were provided to students to enhance their professional image in their resumes and online career profiles.
