The annual ONE ACS Career Forum provides a platform for students, parents and alumni of the ACS family and the Methodist Girls' School to gain insights from industry practitioners across more than 15 career options.
The ONE ACS Career Forum is an annual educational event organized by the ACS OBA and sponsored by the ACS Foundation. It is a unique opportunity for students, parents and alumni of the ACS family to gain a better understanding of the challenges and expectations of different careers and industries. The event is also open to the students of all the Methodist Schools in Singapore.
Our forum this year will be held on Saturday, July 29th at ACS (Independent), 121 Dover Road from 8am - 2pm. It brings together over 60 ACSian speakers across 14 professional disciplines that include traditional courses like Law, Medicine, Engineering and Banking and Finance, but also extends to Education, Entrepreneurship, Public Service, Media, Business Development, Marketing, Social Enterprises, Allied Healthcare, Startups and Tech/ IoT (Internet of Things). In addition, we will have a track to familiarize participants with interview skills and personal branding strategies.
Each panel will be hosted by moderator who will facilitate discussion on questions such as “Tell us about the Highs and Lows of your career”, “What is a typical day in your profession like?” and “What skills do you need to succeed in this job?” The purpose of the questions is to give students and parents a candid and personal insight into the nuances of what each career entails. The focused nature of each of the industry panels allows significant interaction between students, parents and the alumni panelists who will share their personal insights, experiences and advice.
Local tertiary institutions such as NTU, NUS, SMU, Singapore University of Social Sciences, SUTD, and Yale-NUS will be present to enhance the overall experience of the Forum. Participants can engage with representatives from these institutions on topics such as academic modules offered, career options, and the criteria for different careers, in addition to clarifying queries on application procedures and selection requirements.
No registration is required for ACS OBA members and alumni.
