It was all about self-exploration for The One Academy students at the Career Day Talk. The session helped students get to know themselves better and their personalities, which can affect their career and vocational choices. The career day event also saw a sharing session by Talent Recruitment Company called FONT, on how to be an interview-ready candidate.
As young graduates-to-be, instead of just being occupied with books and finishing up assignments, students are also learning how to be part of the real world; which is why the Career Day Talk was indeed a very helpful session for students to emerge as well-prepared young professionals. It helped students to explore their personal strengths and weaknesses, in order for them to identify their right career path and attain career achievements through their personal potential.
To have an effective understanding on how students can recognize their potential, during the session, students were introduced to a ‘Personality Profiling’ through ‘Dermatoglyphics Profiling’ system, based on a theory of careers & vocational choices called the ‘Holland Code’ coined by psychologist John L. Holland. Here, students learned to identify their personalities, ranging from Realistic (Doers), Investigative (Thinkers), Artistic (Creators), Social (Helpers), Enterprising (Persuaders) and Conventional (Organizers).
Students also participated in a self-analyzing group activity; they were required to go into different groups based on their personalities, and to demonstrate how individuals of different personalities arrange their table using materials provided. The activity was followed by the sharing session from FONT. The professionals from FONT agency came to help students develop interview skills, including obtaining better understanding on the do’s & don’ts during an interview session. This sharing session was aimed to encourage students to prepare themselves and their portfolios in advance so that they will always be ready for an interview.
It is part of The One Academy’s priority to make sure that students are constantly learning, not just academically, but grooming them into young fine professionals ready to take the industry by storm!
