What Next: The Ultimate Roadshow for School Leavers

The What Next Roadshow by CareerAdvisor.asia drew a sizeable crowd of school leavers and their parents on December 14th and 15th, 2019 at the BAC PJ campus. This unique roadshow brought various colleges, universities and training institutions together to help students discover the right pathway to the best career for them.  

The two-day roadshow kicked off with a dynamic session by BAC Education’s Managing Director, Raja Singham, on the Future of Work and how students can prepare themselves for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  

Leading expert in human capital development, Kumar Nagalingam (CEO of the Skills Academy) then introduced students to a career aptitude test to help them determine potential careers based on their personal strengths. 

 

A separate session on “Funding Your Studies: Scholarships & Student Loans shared insights on how students could apply for financial aid and the difference between scholarships and student loans.  

Participating students also heard from industry experts in the fields of law, business, creative communications, science, education and ICT via interactive workshops.  

“The roadshow was very helpful as I now have a better understanding of what pathways and careers are available to me. It’s a good atmosphere for students to come around and see different institutions and explore what each offers” enthused Vivian, a 17-year old SPM leaver. “I think this roadshow should be held more often so that students like me can benefit from it.
