Director’s Message

With the rising number of graduates and fierce competition for jobs, employers are looking for more than just academic achievements. To gain employment and be successful in your chosen occupation, you need to have the effective mix of knowledge, skills and attitudes. This is all about employability.

How do we develop employability skills that employers look for? A good indicator is to focus on potential. Potential is defined as the ability to adapt to changing business coupled with the potential to learn new ones. I have chosen 4 indicators with the acronym A.C.A.D.

Aspiration: A strong desire to achieve. To leave your mark but with a deep commitment to big, collective goals, show deep personal humility and invest in getting better at everything you do.

Curiousity: To be on the lookout for new knowledge, ideas and experience to improve ourselves. This enables us to navigate the evolving world with curiousity and positivity.

Ambition: Hungry, passionate and engaged individuals are more employable. There tend to be  no limits to what they can do.

Determination: Individual’s with potential  set high goals and do what’s necessary to attain them. They also tend to be both tenacious and resilient.

It is the combination of classroom knowledge that you gained coupled with the out- of- classroom experience and positive A.C.A.D traits that can set you apart and  help you attain  fulfilment in your career.

I urge you to make an effort to participate in the whole student experience during your learning journey in SIM Global Education. This includes engaging in your academic studies, co-curricular activities, community services, global learning and work experience. This will prepare you well for employment and employability.
