Employment opportunities are increasingly becoming scarcer. To overcome this situation, the earlier you consider getting ready, the better the results you can achieve. However, students still tend to focus on grades, rather than their aptitude. There are many programs that help students map out their career paths, but students rarely know about the programs. To hear opinions about these problems and to hold discussions, the Ministry of Employment and Labor held a workshop on November 17th at the Korea University of Technology and Education (KUTE). In attendance were heads of employment support departments and reporters from universities throughout the country.
The workshop started by introducing new youth employment policies. After that, people got opportunities to voice their opinions about more effective policy directions. Each university reporter proposed creative solutions. One of them was using the media to make videos based on a broadcast program, "Start Work Today," and putting information about employment policies in university magazines.
Park Hwa-jin, a policy director of a manpower supply and demand, said, "It is important that universities and the Ministry of Employment and Labor actively support strengthening students' abilities. We are trying to find proper methods based on opinions suggested today."
When you choose your job, it is important to consider what makes you feel happy. Go to Worknet's homepage (www.work.go.kr). There is a lot of employment information, and job-related programs are available. It will help you prepare for the changing job market.
