1. Which do you prefer, to have a sole career or various work experience?


I prefer to have a sole career.


If you pursuit one career, you can focus on the things you need to learn. It will make you more professional and specialized. You can get paid more as a specialist and gain expert knowledge. So, I think I prefer to have a sole career.

I prefer to have various work experience.

Having various experience broadens your horizons. You will learn various views towards a particular thing, and also will learn how to adapt that to a real situation. Also, it will develop your ability to adapt into a new environment, which can greatly help you when and if you face a new or unexpected situation.

2. Can you tell me some advantages of having various work experience?

Having various work experience increase people’s ability to cope with many different situations at work places. You can also increase soft skills like team working, communication skills and awareness. Also, it will help you when you make a long term career choice. You can try many different jobs and find what really suits you. You can gain the knowledge and skills that you need to hit the ground running and become more attractive employee. 

3 Do you think occupational training is useful for students?

Occupational training is very beneficial for students, in my opinion. One of the advantages of vocational training is that it offers students to have a chance to experience real work environment. Students can learn what it is like to take responsibilities at workplace, which will help them greatly after graduation. Another advantage is that they can gain practical skills that can be used in a job immediately. This will make them more attractive to employers when they look for a job after graduation. For these reasons, I think job training is important for students.

4.How can we help students prepare themselves for a better future?

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a life time. We need to teach them how to be proactive and support themselves rather than do something for them. A lot of Korean students struggle in an overly competitive environment. But many of them have a passive attitude and some lack confidence because they were overly protected by their parents. I believe we should let them be more creative and independent. We can also create more accepting environment for them to feel comfortable to do what they really want.
