KU helps high school students with career planning
The university successfully launched its career guide program.
Korea University has established a program that supports high school students in the local neighborhood to find the right career path.
The Career Guide Program aims to help high school students choose their college majors and future jobs. The program provides the students an opportunity to learn more about potential occupations related to their college majors. Furthermore, it also introduces other relevant jobs that the students may choose in collaboration with licenses or majors other than their own.
The program was developed by the Academy of Human Resource Development in the Office of Student Affairs at Korea University based on the career guide by majors published by the Korea Employment Information Service (KEIS). As a pilot program, Korea University held a 7-hour meeting on October 22, with a total of 39 first- and second-year students from Younghoon High School located nearby.
KU students participated in the event as mentors to the high school students. During their one-on-one meeting, the mentors and their mentees participated in a candid conversation about deciding college majors and future careers.
Two more events are scheduled on October 25 and 27 at Korea University High School and Shinil High School with a total of 80 students.
