Panel 1: Adjusting your career to a Covid-19 World; is the Best still yet to be?

A movie script narrating a pandemic of the global proportions that we now face would have been long-rejected by Hollywood as wholly unrealistic. Nonetheless, that's where we find ourselves now. Living the way, we did prior to the Circuit Breaker may not be possible in the immediate future, and our lifestyles and careers will inevitably have to adapt. As we continue to deal with the fallout of the pandemic, what then can we expect, and how can we survive, adapt and thrive in the 'new normal'? 

Join AC alumni from Medicine, Law, Cybersecurity, Education and F&B as they discuss the impact that Covid-19 has had on the work force and how their industries have had to react, recreate and innovate in this rapidly evolving economic reality.

Panel 2: The Inside Scoop featuring ACS alumni from all our 7 schools

What to expect during the tertiary admissions process?

Get up close and personal with AC alumni undergraduates currently attending Yale-NUS College, Harvard University and Stanford University as they share candid thoughts on the application processes, personal ACS journeys and scholastic challenges. Ask recent graduates from the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, University of Oxford, University of Chicago and Ngee Ann Polytechnic what their job search experiences were like. 

What are the qualities that admissions panels look for beyond grades? How do I differentiate myself from other candidates in today's highly competitive environment when internships and community service opportunities are virtually non-existent?  How do I put my best face forward in a Zoom panel interview and how should I follow up? Answers to these questions and more await at this informative panel.
