SECTION MENU

I was recently invited to attend the National University of Singapore School of Computing Alumni-Student Networking Session on 8 April 2011, as an alumni mentor. The event was organized as a platform for students to learn from alumni mentors about work and life outside the university. It aims to facilitate a smooth university-to-work transition for students and ensure that they are better prepared for entry into the working world.

A total of 6 alumni mentors attended and I was one of the representatives for the Gaming and Media cluster.

In the session, I shared my first-hand working experience in the visual effects industry, including my day-to-day experience of working in London. I also explained the different kinds of jobs that are available and gave them tips on how to prepare for the industry and their first jobs.

All in all, I hope my mentoring has helped and that the current students are able to get their dream media jobs when they graduate.
