The following training workshops and career sessions are organised throughout the year:
- career advising (one-to-one career coaching) sessions;
- training workshops for internships;
- training workshops for graduating classes; and
- career programmes.

In this 45-minute one-to-one consultation session, our Career Advisors provide professional advice and useful tips to students regarding career planning, job-search skills and interview preparation.
Submit CV for registration via POSS.
Types of one-to-one career coaching session include:
Mock Face-to-Face Interview
It aims at helping students get ready for a job interview. Our Career Advisors will give advice on handling common interview questions and developing interview strategies.

Preparations to be made for the session include:
