The National University of Singapore has launched a new course called Career Catalyst, and it is offered to undergraduates in their second or third year.
The 12-week long module aims to teach undergraduates how to map out their career and get the skills to land a job. It builds on a 12-week foundational programme, Roots and Wings, that was introduced in 2016 to teach first-year students life skills, such as self-awareness and communication.
Thus far, around 600 NUS students have enrolled in the new course.
NUS also recently held a career fair which features more than 260 employers from 21 industries such as financial services, engineering, retail and hospitality. This year’s career fair focussed on self-development and career exploration for students.
