At the panel session, students had insightful discussions with the alumni on interview techniques, career progression, as well as their career aspirations and dream jobs. The alumni also shared with the students on how to stand out during interviews and how some companies conduct headhunting through LinkedIn profiles.

 

Headshot services - “Picture Perfect” was previously introduced by the NUS Students’ Science Club Alumni Relations Sub-Committee and this year continued by popular demand. Professional headshot and make-up services were provided to the students to enhance their image for their resumes and online career profiles.

 

The event was well-received, with positive feedback from various participants.

 

CHUA Wei Jie said, “I enjoyed the sessions! Cassandra from Food Panda gave me new insights about how the working world is like.”

 

Jeslyn LEE Chun Wei said, “I was unsure about my future path but through the networking session, I learnt of the alumni’s experiences which resonated with me. Their sharing also helped dispel my fears and encouraged me to explore my interests.”

 

Samantha ONG Kah Ling said, “Talking to alumni from different fields encouraged me to be venturesome instead of limiting my options.”
