Last week, FASS and NUS Career Centre (NCC) co-organised a series of two career guidance talks specially catered for FASS students. Held on 18 and 19 September, the “FASS Talk – Career Insights” series featured a total of four FASS alumni guest speakers from the fields of Human Resource (HR) and Marketing respectively, as these sectors have been identified as two of the most popular career options for FASS graduates. The speakers for HR were Ms Ruth Lim from MSD International GmbH and Ms Winifred Loh from LEADForte, while Ms Natasha Zhao from Blugrapes and Mr Azmi Suhaimi from HotelQuickly spoke at the session on Marketing.
Apart from sharing life stories and experiences related to working in their respective industries, the guest speakers provided insight and advice to students on how to manage real-life situations through discussing case studies. They also highlighted the qualities required to be successful, and the expectations of having a career in these sectors.
Both talks were generally well-received, with some students commenting that the speakers’ knowledge/information shared was in sync with what they wanted to know. In addition, the students found the speakers’ practical advice and precautions/expectations of being in their industry very useful.
