YU and major universities of Seoul teamed up to improve the chance of obtaining desired jobs for students and those preparing for jobs.
YU, Konkuk University and Myungji University held the ‘2017 2nd College Job Center Alliance Employment Camp’. At this alliance employment camp held at the Lotte HR Development Center in Osan, Gyeonggi-do for two nights and three days from the 19th to 21st, a total of 90 participants, 30 from each university, participated. This is the second alliance employment camp since the first camp joined by 120 students from YU, Konkuk University, Myungji University and Chosun University at the Daewoong Management Development Institute in June.
This employment camp supervised by the YU College Job Center was organized to strengthen the employment capacities of university students in preparation for the employment season in the first half of 2018. Current corporate HR personnel and employment experts participated in the event to contribute to the job capacity school, writing applications and resumes, and holding mock interviews. Training on employment strategies for blind hiring, team-building and work analysis were held on the first day. On the second day, students learned about writing applications, practiced speech and voice, and held mock interviews. On the last day of the camp, the participants held mock interviews in detailed stages to strengthen their capacities to gain employment.
Kim Ho-hyeon (26, graduated from the YU School of International Economics and Business) said, “After participating in the employment camp with schools from other universities, I was able to learn about the different strengths and weaknesses, and it was an opportunity for me to gain an objective view on how prepared I am to search for jobs.” He added, “I have become more motivated through this camp and I will do all I can to join the company I want early next year.”
YU College Job Center Director Kang Seok-bok said, “I hope that the students of the three universities that will compete fairly during their course of gaining employment will be able to check each other’s strengths and weaknesses through this alliance employment camp and benchmark each other to upgrade their job capacities.” He added, “The College Job Center will also develop various employment capacity strengthening programs to provide full support to help students gain employment as they desire.”
Meanwhile, YU was selected for the College Job Center supported by the central and local governments of YU and thus founded the YU College Job Center organized directly under the university president in April of this year. The College Job Center is co-operated by the Ministry of Employment and Labor, universities and local governments so that current students, graduated students and youths in the area can easily receive career guidance and employment support services. There are currently 12 full-time consultants in the YU College Job Center who provide customized career and employment counseling to students, while also offering various employment capacity strengthening programs.
