SINGAPORE: In an attempt to prepare undergrad students for the changing job market conditions, the National University of Singapore (NUS) is offering a 12-week career-skills module.
Known as Career Catalyst, this module was designed with the goal of equipping students with skills that are needed to make themselves more employable and forge their own career path. Apart from lectures and e-seminars, this will include activities for experiential learning and participation in industry events.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the university’s career fest, Ho Teck Hua, Senior Deputy President and Provost at NUS, said that the module will enable students to begin planning their career at an early stage.
According to information on the NUS website, the module will help students become familiar with the requirements of employers, learn to market themselves, and employ effective strategies to find the right jobs.
Working conditions and job markets around the world are changing rapidly and students have no choice but to be flexible and be able to adapt to the requirements, Ho added.
NUS is one of the prestigious institutions in Singapore and most banks offer study loans and student credit cards for its scholars.
