NUS Career Fair 2014 – Official Speaker

I’m back on homeground. Yes, literally speaking that is true. Welcome to the NUS Career Fair 2014, a two full-day event that is keenly anticipated by all graduating students. As an invited speaker, I was given the liberty to choose a topic that was of personal interest and would resonate with the students. I chose ‘Life Profiling – Knowing Yourself and Knowing Others’.

As an NUS ex-undergraduate and now alumni, I can understand the struggles most face when coming to the final year of their studies. When all of a sudden there are no more exams and no more assignments to worry about…that’s when the real world dawns. And many are lost as they do not know what they exactly want to do in life.

When I first created this topic on life profiling, it was precisely with the intention to give my audience a better grasp of their own self in terms of their characters, strengths and weaknesses.

I’m glad life profiling has proved to be a hit with the students as the questions from them came fast and furious from the packed room. Comprising a good mix of both locals and foreign students, it is also evident that NUS has truly become a global university.

What is life? Life is what we make of it. You hold in your hands the destiny to make that change to become the person you have always wanted to be.

What is profiling? Simply put, it means a recording and analysis of a person’s behavioural characteristics.

Put together, ‘life profiling’ helps one to identify his or her unique patterns. When one has clarity, one has the power to either reinforce that strength or improve that weakness. It is an open secret that in recent years, more companies and organisations are using a variety of personality tools to profile their candidates before hiring them. It’s about finding that good fit.

Rather than wait for someone to value your worth, why not have a headstart by enrolling in the next upcoming life profiling workshop? Come learn and walk away inspired and see yourself from a brand new perspective!
