PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES
To ensure that students are ready for the working world, SMUSA focuses on providing students with the essential tools to help them in achieving their goals and dream jobs. From name cards to online courses, SMUSA aims to provide students with unique opportunities to develop themselves professionally.
SMUSA x Career Champions Internship Workshop
In 2021, SMUSA collaborated with Career Champions once more on a workshop on internship applications and workplace conduct. The online workshop featured a panel of both students and professionals well-acquainted with the Asia-Pacific market who shared on personal tips on increasing employability and navigating a workplace environment.
The workshop also included an interactive question-and-answer session, where members of the audience could direct their questions to the panel.
SMU Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW)
In light of the physical and emotional distance we tend to feel in an online environment, the theme for Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) 2021 was "Let's Stay Connected!"
MHAW 2021 also marked the launch of SMU's Resilience Framework in conjunction with World Mental Health Day, emphasising the importance of social wellness and togetherness.
For MHAW 2021, SMUSA collaborated with the Mrs Wong Kwok Leong Student Wellness Centre (MWKLSWC) on numerous workshops and facilitated interactive activities that aimed to promote building interpersonal relationships and a strong social network.
