Perspectives: Final Year vs Working Employees

Event Details

Date: 25th June 2020, Thursday
Time: 1950hrs to 2100hrs UTC+08

Event Description

The entire world has been plunged into an unprecedented crisis by the Covid-19 pandemic. University students in particular are anxious as to how the “new-normal” and the economic recession will have an impact on their future careers. Social distancing measures have also resulted in all physical networking events to either be cancelled or postponed.

In hopes of alleviating the worries of the Malaysian student community in Singapore, we intend to organize a virtual information session entitled “Perspectives: Final Year vs Working Employees”. The event, as the name suggests, will revolve around industry experts and newly graduated seniors who have just entered the workforce to share their experiences and insights. The focus of the sharing will be on things the seniors/experts encourage current university students to learn based on their experience and knowledge of the industry.
