Description of Seminar:
The teaching track and the media career are two conventional career pathways that many Chinese Studies graduates decide to embark on. The two speakers have a great deal of experience in the local Chinese media industry, particularly with Mediacorp Radio and Singapore Press Holdings. Through the sharing of past experiences and how the local Chinese media industry has evolved in the past two decades, students will be able to gain greater insights about the industry. This will be helpful for students who are interested in embarking on a career in the media industry.
