Different career planning groups
The “S5 Future career planning group" is organized by CGC and SNC functional groups. By sharing the latest labour industry information and participating in career games, these facilitate S5 students to plan their future career. With the gospel element being included in this group, we are glad to have invited two churches in Kwun Tong District to assist by having volunteers from over ten different industries as group mentors, injecting new energy into the students’ career planning.

It is the wish of many young people to be able to find a job that they both like and can get by. The culture of society is constantly changing, and it has gradually become a set of standards for people’s living requirements; just as if you want to have a good future, you must have the good academic background to get a decent job and have a decent life. In fact, the above statement also has the wisdom of life, but the preciousness of man lies in the opportunity to develop his uniqueness.
Through the career planning groups, I had an opportunity to discuss with two students about their favorite jobs and simulated the process of doing business together. In addition, we visited a coffee shop to interview the owner, so that we can reflect clearly on the future work direction. Indeed, young people need companions in life to explore the world together and build a bright future for themselves.

Mentor – Miss Charlotte Ng
Majored in psychology at university, I am blessed to have the chance to share with STCC students regarding the Career and Life Planning session. God has shaped me in every way in my life and given me the opportunity to encourage students to explore His work together. In the process of looking for directions, we slowly discovered our “self” and shared the blessing with others.
Among them, the most profound segment is the lifeline. Everyone shared frankly the major events in their past lives, and even difficulties faced by one’s family members. Listening to this sharing, I realized that these events were merely a coincidence, but equipping one to embark on a unique journey. At the same time, I am grateful for these S.5 students who are enthusiastic and continue to embrace grace and leadership of God.

I have learned a lot from the group, especially by visiting the café and interview its owner. Apart from getting to know how to run a café, we had done a lot of preparation work, including searching for cafés, inviting the café owner for interview, and designing the interview questions. This is something I can’t learn from textbooks. Most importantly, I acknowledged that the key to success isn’t just passion, but perseverance and resilience.

I’m grateful that the school has provided me a chance to interview a café owner with my friend since I am interested in opening my own cafe. Not only did I learn about the operation process of a cafe, from concept to location, but also the importance of creativity, from the perspective of an experienced businessman. Our mentor was with us the whole time, providing assistance and inspiration. After this visit, I am confident to start my own café and it is a turning point in my career planning.
