Mapping the future
There is a career event going on for three days in the university this week, organised by the career office and the Wall Street Club. Basically, there are a number of well known companies regionally and internationally to brief us on their prospect employment, what are the criterias needed from graduates, their present and future expansion in relation to employment policies, what are the employees' benefits, and what are their expectations from fresh graduates in order to be employed. The companies are Deloitte, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, KPMG (financial services company), Shell (oil exploration and production), L'oreal (cosmetic industry), DiGi (telecommunication), IBM (computer technologies), and others. Eventhough the event is most useful as a tool of guidance for the 3rd year students to map their career path, I find this is a new perspective in navigating my future career which I will explore in depth when I'm in the final year soon.

"You can and should shape your own future; because if you don't someone else surely will"
