The Ministry of Education has selected HUFS as the final candidate for its ‘2021 University Career Search Credit System’ project, offering HUFS up to KRW 120 million of financial support over the next three years.
With the aim of encouraging college students to explore their career path in a more active and self-directed manner, the Ministry of Education runs the University Career Search Credit System Support Project. Under the project, universities allow their students to carry out their career search in a self-oriented manner and award credit to such career search activities. This project gives students more options and approaches to explore their future career directions and weave them into a solid career path.
As part of the project, HUFS will unveil the ‘HUFS Career Search H-Up Semester Program,’ supporting students to discover their future career path. Under the program, students can search for overseas jobs and startup opportunities, build regional expertise, engage in solving local community problems and social contribution, develop cultural content, conduct a content-creation project, pursue further study in their major, start a business, take an inter- or multi-disciplinary academic course, or do any other career exploration activities that they choose.
Choi Ho-Seong, HUFS Global Campus Dean of Student Affairs and Human Resource Development, said, “Through the Ministry of Education's University Career Search Support Project, we will provide all possible support to our students so that they can identify their strengths early on and make a smooth transition to their career life through this future job exploration process.”
