Be it just entering the workforce or pivoting to another industry, having expert support and advice is invaluable in helping students choose the ideal degrees or diplomas in Singapore to enroll in for their future. Learn more about career guidance and how Amity Global empowers our students to step into their dream careers.
What is career guidance?
With increasing competitiveness across the globe, there is extensive pressure on Singaporean students studying bachelor degrees and diplomas alike to ‘get it right’ and choose a major that has both solid prospects and something they enjoy. However, students often discover midway through their degree that their interests and passions lie elsewhere, or desire a career change years later due to either seeking new challenges or desiring a better fit for their interests and passions.
Even after receiving their bachelor degree or diploma in Singapore, students are still expected to adapt and upskill themselves while in their careers. In some cases, companies may send their employees for additional training to learn new skills. In other cases, the onus is left to individual employees to remain competitive and employable, either within their current field or other careers they are interested to pursue. This can lead to much confusion and uncertainty about one’s path, particularly in a constantly changing world.
Career guidance focuses on helping students and graduates acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience to make informed decisions regarding their career options at their existing stage of education and life, greatly increasing their likelihood of career success. This can range from choosing which bachelor degree in Singapore to apply for after receiving a diploma or to enter the workforce; or whether to enroll in a professional degree or a top-up class which teaches skills required for career upgrading. Through proper planning, career guidance gives students the clarity and direction to achieve their career and personal goals.
