Unmasking Careers in STEM
The world is getting more digital and the need for people with STEM-related skills (particularly within the technological space) is gradually increasing.
The Unmasking Careers in STEM event aims to shed some light on the diverse career opportunities available to people equipped with STEM-related skills. We will be breaking down barriers and clarifying any misconceptions. Through this event, we hope to equip you with the tools and information that will aid your decision-making process as you prepare for the next stage of your education.
This will be an interactive zoom event.
After the introduction and opening discussion, participants will be split into three breakout rooms based on chosen STEM areas during registration. During the breakout sessions, participants will be able to ask particular questions about their STEM field of interest. The facilitators will be breaking down topics such as how to get into STEM, the type of skills you can develop as well as the challenges and how they can be overcome. After the breakout room sessions, there will be another general session on the importance of leadership and other personal development skills. This is a session not to be missed as it will show you how STEM-related skills can be utilised and open your minds to a lot of possibilities.
