“Project LIGHT” provides career development services for working youths with bachelor degree
Sponsored by Simon K.Y. Lee Karen’s Fund, the Association’s Career Development and Continuing Education Department launches “Project LIGHT” for working youths with bachelor degree and aged between 22 and 35 years old. The project aims at assisting young people to understand themselves and broaden horizon, hence better plan their career.
Part one of the project involves one-on-one consultation between a global career development facilitator and the participants. This section helps young people to decide job natures that suit their values. Part two targets at establishing a wider social network for the participants and providing up-to-dated market information. For example, Career Night gives out tips about building self-image and switching occupation, and Friend Hub gathers youngsters for experience exchange.
As it is rare for a career development programme to target at working youths with degree, “Project LIGHT” is well received. More workshops, like career exploration day, sharing sessions by industry expertises, local tour, oversea exchange tour, etc. will be organised to enrich participants’ knowledge on different industries.
