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.
THE SMUSA EXPERIENCE: SMOOthening Transitions
The SMUSA Experience: SMOOthening Transitions is organised in collaboration with SMU Career Champions. It aims to help SMU students gain insights into the working world. With professionals from Maximus and LinkedIn as well as SMU seniors, this digital employablity clinic helped SMU students learn the ropes of recruitment through improving their CV and enhancing their LinkedIn Profile.
With a full sign-up for the event, the valuable experiences that these speakers has imparted is sure to help and make an impact on our students who attended the event.
Themed “The SMUSA Experience: Name It, Frame It”, SMUSA’s annual Name Card Drive aims to enhance interactions between SMU students and industry professionals in any given setting.
With the purchase of their personalised name cards, we hope that students are able to share their contacts professionally in networking sessions and other opportunities that the school provides, and making their interactions with these industry professionals more memorable.
SMUSA ensures that the name cards are printed in a satisfactory condition with the highest accuracy of information reflected in the cards.

THE SMUSA EXPERIENCE: LEVEL UP!
Summer has always been a time to rest and relax. But many SMU students also take this time to gain exposure and experience in a career that they are interested in through internships.
However, due to the fluid situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, many students’ internship offers were unfortunately rescinded. With the extension of Circuit Breaker, SMUSA took it online to provide students with alternatives to boost their resume and skills, while at home.
“The SMUSA Experience: Level Up!” aims to share and educate students on the various online resources, webinars and courses that students could utilise to use their free time in the summer meaningfully.
