Cold and rainy weather today. There was a slight congestion on my way to Suntec convention centre which delayed me considerably. I was scheduled to be an SIM student ambassador for this career fair as part of the campus working experience. Pay ain’t pretty but my job scope for this afternoon is rather straight forward. I had to replenish and distribute brochures to the passer-bys, handle simple inquiries and to share the campus life in a student perspective for the benefit of the potential parties. SIM managed to get a good spot for the booth’s location and they had nice-looking badges for free gifts which I helped myself:
Overall, this fair was a relatively new experience for me as I got to work with my uni’s pals which upped the fun factor and I got to know more about the private education scene( which is vibrant by any standards). As expected, there were middle aged people eager to take up bachelor courses from UNISIM to utilize the higher education subsidy allocated by our Minister for Education: Tharman Shanmugaratnam during the Budget’08.
