Dream Career Workshop (DCW)

In today’s competitive career market, technical skills alone are not enough to get you into your dream career. You need to stand out from the crowd.

Noesis’s career catalyst programme, the Dream Career Workshop (DCW), aims to equip career seekers from all backgrounds with the necessary skills and know-how to chart the course of their own dream careers.

The Noesis student body is made up of 95 % working professional graduates. Networking among these professionals in our classrooms, workshops, and clubs will enhance your learning experience. Noesis’s learning experience is also enhanced by our Webinar system and e-Learning portal (My Noesis), and excellent modern classroom facilities.Shayne Foo

Our Mentors

Aside from our faculty, Noesis has hand picked a select group of professionals, lecturers and charter holders who are not only experts in their field technically, but have also gone through changes in their own careers.

These mentors guide candidates not just throughout the course of the Dream Career Workshop, but also provide follow-up support to help their mentees establish themselves in their first jobs.

DCW Curriculum

Module 1: Exploring Career Options

Before they embark on their career path, each candidate’s abilities are assessed by our experts to understand how far the candidate’s principal attributes are suitable for their targeted career. We then apply those principles through the industry-standard Myer-Briggs Test.

From this assessment, our experts determine what career paths are suitable. The candidates are then assigned to a mentor. Together, the candidate and mentor develop a career development plan (CDP). Students are encouraged to apply this assessment to make informed choices about their careers during subsequent modules of the DCW, and after the workshop.

Module 2: Brand Yourself / Networking &
Effective Resumes

The only way to get people to know who you are and what you are capable of is to tell them! But before you tell them, you need to think about and decide yourself what your strengths are (USPs) and how you are going to present them – particularly to potential employers. This session helps candidates determine how best to brand and sell themselves.

Networking

Whether you are looking for a job, navigating career options or exploring business opportunities, you will learn some easy, non-threatening approaches to connect with others to meet your goals. The session taps into your inner conversationalist!

Resume Writing

Employers spend on average only 30 seconds reviewing a resume and covering letter to decide which candidates to invite for interview. So how do you make your resume stand out? This session helps candidates to put their skills and experience effectively down on paper. It includes the basic components of a resume, formatting strategies, and the importance of tailoring a resume to a particular position. Candidates are also given individual support to improve their own resumes.

Module 3: Career and Industry Overviews

These forum-based sessions are conducted by guest speakers, providing a platform for candidates to gain an overview of their field of interest from market experts and individuals working in the industry. In addition to an overall understanding the industry, speakers identify the benefits and challenges faced by professionals in the industry.

Fields of Interest
• Marketing
• Finance / Investment
• Accounting

Module 4: Interview Preparation and Understanding The Recruitment Process

Whether you are a new graduate or an established professional, you need to prepare for job interviews. This module provides candidates with the mindset and tools to do so. Through practical information, candidates explore popular questions and how to answer them, interview preparation techniques, and more.

HR professionals from relevant industries and enterprises are also brought in to share insights about their organizations’ recruitment processes including case studies, job requirements, and the main dos and don’ts of the entire process.

Module 5: Resume Enhancement and Mentor Feedback

Don’t know how to respond to a recruiter’s question?
Our mock interviews put the accumulated knowledge acquired by candidates from previous modules into practice, allowing candidates the opportunity to practise responds to various real-life situations during an interview.

Candidates then review their performance (on paper and practice) with their mentor and discuss their career development plan (CDP).

Module 6: Recruiter Presentation

The workshop culminates with presentations from prospective employers from various top organizations, which provide candidates a hands-on opportunity to network with and get a better understanding of their prospective employers.
