Choosing the right career path to take after you graduate is not easy. Proper research and planning are required when thinking about your career or what you want to pursue in life. Whichever direction you choose, we are here to help you make the right one, as best as we can. We aim to help you with just that by
Aiding you in your research by providing you with beneficial and informative materials on Career planning, direction and progression,
Providing information on where you can check and sign up for voluntary works within campus, do community outreach programmes in Brunei, and internship opportunities, and
Organizing events especially for you such as talks and workshops on career progression and development.
The thought of entering the workforce can be quite disconcerting for most students. After all, you will be exposed to many situations and challenges which you are not familiar with.
How CoNECT can help you in regards to this is to organize and conduct workshops and sharing sessions within campus with successful alumni and individuals expert in their fields in order for you to:
interact closely with the speakers and learn from their personal experiences,
learn how to impress employers with your CV and to ace that interview,
have a glimpse into what goes on in the field you are interested to venture into from the experts,
find out the required skills and knowledge to develop for your chosen career.
It is important that you start planning on where you want to go after this. If you are already set on that, congratulations, but for those who are still searching, one of the best ways for you to find your niche is to gain experience through volunteering, internships & part-time jobs.
The idea may seem daunting but being involved in these activities would teach you about better time management and how to juggle everything in a smart way which are vital skills to have once you are in the working world. Plus, they are commendable and can help amp up your resume as well as help you in your future career.
We hope that you make the best of the opportunities that we offer right here so that once you get out there, you will be able to stand out and be amongst the cream of the crop!
