Ewha Holds Online Mentoring Program "Bang Jin Con"
The Ewha Career Development Center held the 2020 “Bang Jin Con,” which is an abbreviation of the title “career concert at home” in Korean, for the summer vacation of 2020. Bang Jin Con is an online mentoring service that is brought to Ewha students at home, providing the opportunity for bilateral communication between senior and junior students and storytelling-oriented contents on career paths, and organizing events for younger generations who are more familiar with online performances.
The Career Development Center is holding Bang Jin Con on Zoom after receiving applications for attendance through the THE Portfolio system. Starting from July 4 (Saturday), the online concert features prestigious companies such as NCSoft (video games/business planning), Pfizer Korea (pharmaceuticals/HR), Adidas (global marketer) across various occupational sectors, and has been met with favorable responses in terms of both participation and satisfaction. On July 18 (Saturday), Lee Yeong-in (graduating class of 2019, Department of Business Administration), who is a marketing employee at Adidas, mentored students who have yet to choose a career path.
The director of the center, Lee Joohee, remarked, "I hope the stories told by graduates who are now building their careers in various fields will help Ewha students in a more specific way as they look for their own careers." She also added, "If you gained a clearer sense of the career or job you want to pursue, then you should start preparing to enter into society through the center's employment programs, such as Employment Master Class, Mentoring School, Ewha Mentoring Day, and Toktok Seniors.
Commencing in time for the summer vacation, Bang Jin Con is scheduled to end on August 22 (Saturday) and restart in the coming winter vacation. View the schedule and line-up of mentors for August and apply for participation at THE Portfolio (http://the.ewha.ac.kr).
