date_range2018-03-15

In the first two weeks of March 2018, all students of the Child Development Scholarship Program joined 2nd-semester meetings to discuss social projects taking place over the course of 2018, as well as to participate in the training activity: “How to control the job application process”. Meetings took place in Tra Vinh, Tien Giang and HCMC,

Throughout these events, saigonchildren’s project officers had the opportunity to listen to the children sharing their experiences and discussing their difficulties, as well as to learn of the results of their studies in the last semester. The students were also encouraged to learn more about the program’s supporting policies and regulations which aim to help them understand their rights, as well as their individual responsibilities while participating in the program, as well as those relating to their engagement with the wider community.

In HCM city, the meeting was held on 4th Mar with the participation of nearly 170 students currently receiving support from saigonchildren. The students in question are studying at universities and colleges in HCMC. This event is an opportunity for them to discuss their community fundraising projects for 2018. During March and July, they will set up their own groups and develop fundraising plans, such as bottle sales, food, handmade products, etc. with the aim of practicing and  improving soft skills, as well as raising funds to help younger children in the programs.

By the end of Jul,2018 , the students will participate in a camping festival to review and evaluate projects which are organised by saigonchildren. This event will be the milestone that ends current independent fundraising projects and prepares for the upcoming program in August, which will be coordinated and implemented by all students of saigonchildren.

In Tra Vinh and Tien Giang, on Mar 10 and 11, students also had a meeting with program officers from saigonchildren.

Mr. Huynh Van Hieu – Human Resource Manager of Sanofi Pharmaceutical Company, very generously added his expertise by joining in as the speaker for the topic “Mastering the job search process”. The 26 students who attended the training, benefitted from the expertise and practical information that Mr Hieu provided.

By the end of the session, they had been given an overview and basic knowledge of the job application process, particularly in relation to issues such as how to prepare CVs, how to conduct interviews, how employers evaluate career information and how to prepare their career goals?
