“This is a great program! I gained so much knowledge from this program! It is also incredibly great to share and listen to other members’ experiences! It helps me to identify the weakness and strength, better preparing myself for the future career!”
“Great opportunity for international students to overcome their fears and learn how to search for jobs efficiently”
“I learnt a lot about job searching during the 8 sessions. And I like it much more than lectures, since we could share our stories which are fun and touching. I strongly recommend this counseling sessions. It’s not about direct knowledge learning, but more about sharing.”
“Don’t be shy. Open your mind to listen. Open your mouth to share. Enjoy the group discussions. You will learn how to better understand yourself, how to prepare job searching. You will find confidence.”
“I strongly recommend all the international students who are nearing graduation to participate in this group counselling. It is a unforgettable experience for me and I will benefit from these counselling groups a life long time. The group counselling is different from one on one counselling and you can learn so many unexpected things from your fellow group mates!”
