As part of growing up, students face the inevitable questions pertaining to their career and future. The daunting task of figuring out what you want to do before you can pursue your higher-education places a lot of pressure and stress on the youth, especially on secondary grade students. This isn’t an overnight decision for students, and to alleviate any taxing choices, schools have now integrated career fairs to help further inspire them. 
 
The International School of Tianjin (IST) is globally recognized as an important academic institution that offers an inclusive learning system to its diverse student body, and faculty. On April 18th, 2018 the school hosted its inaugural career fair. This event serves as a platform to provide students an opportunity to listen to guest speakers from various established professions. The guest speakers gave insight as to what education and skills are needed for their chosen careers. 
 
IMG_2435.jpg
 
This interactive event welcomes any questions from students who want a clearer perspective in building their future. The fair is strategically divided to accommodate different professional fields such as hospitality, creative arts, medicine, social sciences, business management, engineering, international relations & diplomacy, psychology, sports, and aviation to name a few. Each speaker is given an allotted time to present their views and ideas regarding their profession. 
 
We’ve interviewed some expert speakers to share their thoughts, struggles, and decisions in choosing a career.
 
Harpreet Singh Puri
 
Harpreet_Singh_Puri.jpg
 
During his schools days Harpreet Singh Puri, Chairman and Managing Director of two business affiliates, BusinessLinks Consulting Limited, and Beyond Frontiers Trading Limited, he wanted to be a general accountant. As a student he found many strong points that could be utilized in his profession. He knew from a young age that he did not like manual or mechanical types of work. He was not fascinated with medicine or engineering, instead analysis, interpretation, problem-solving, and decision-making skills were attributes that rivetted him.
 
For Puri, the important factor in pursuing his career in accounting was to improve and expand his horizon. “When people start their career, they limit themselves to a bracketed sphere. They should keep on finding new opportunities, keep on expanding in new areas both functional and geographical.” Puri thinks that young people should take initiative and accept more responsibilities when working. 
 
“I believe that we were all born to be happy in this life,” says Puri. He believes that a career is a marriage between doing what you love and doing what you are good at. He advocates that students and young people should focus on the process of achieving their career goals. The outcome will always follow. “The important thing is what you do. Do it with honesty and in a dedicated manner but do it to your complete satisfaction. What you are doing is for your own happiness.”
 
Jessica Alvarez-Korzinovski

Jessica Alvarez is a business psychologist, and mother of a child who studies at IST. When she graduated from high school she studied food chemistry for one and a half years. Her choice to pursue psychology was a decision she made overnight. “I think psychology is the right one.” She shares.
 
Jessica is interested in personal development of individuals. She seeks to assist people in figuring out better results and solutions to do a better job. She tells students to be practical, to carefully choose companies, and to explore the various branches of psychology. Having an open-mind is important. She gives advice to students to not be pressured into finishing university at an early age. “You need life experience” Alvarez adds. 
 
Eduardo Bernal Garcia

“I knew I was going to be successful. I knew I was going to do something to fill my life.” These are the words of Eduardo Bernal Garcia, Chief Technology Officer at Accel (Tianjin) Flight Simulation Co., LTD. His analytical, problem-solving, and leadership skills were crucial factors that pushed him to his career. Before pursuing a degree in engineering, Garcia used to study music. He realized that traveling would lessen his time with his family and it did not fit the roadmap of the life he wanted. This was his big turning point before he decided to study engineering. 
 
He advices students to carefully plan their life based on the following questions: 
 
1. Which career do you want to pursue? 
2. Do you want to get married?
3. Do you want to have kids?
 
“Those three questions will change your life”, Eduardo said. His family-oriented views are important, since most students don’t think about those factors in their future. For Eduardo, career selection should be carefully decided on a person’s skills, physical attributes, and their feelings towards the profession. 
 
Chris Wood
 
Chris_Wood_picture.jpg
 
Minister and Deputy Head of Delegation in the Delegation of the European Union, Chris Wood joined the British Foreign Ministry after finishing university. “At 15 to 16 years old, I had no idea that this was how my career would develop” says Wood. His interest in languages and international relations was his inspiration to become a diplomat. 
 
Chris shares that people who join the Foreign Service come from diverse backgrounds. Having a background in politics isn’t a necessary requirement for this profession. “It doesn’t really matter as to what you have. The key thing is to be able to analyze and draw conclusions. You learn that in all sorts of academic discipline.” Wood added.
 
His advice to the youth is to do what you love. Finding one’s passion and doing something you enjoy is the most important. 

Stephen Hao
 
As Deputy Chairman of Dentistry at Tianjin United Family Hospital, Stephen Hao had a different career choice when he was younger. “I never thought I was going to be a dentist. I majored in chemistry when I was in college. I decided to make a career change after working for a few years. I went back to school to become a dentist.”
 
Having always liked dentistry, Stephen left his previous job as a chemist. He found working in laboratories to be boring and that was the deciding factor for him to change careers.
 
Getting good grades will be an advantage, but Hao recommends students to find extracurricular activities such as internships or community service. 
 
S酶ren 脴stergaard
 
S酶ren 脴stergaard had no idea that he would end up as a General Manager for NNIT (Tianjin) Technology Co., LTD. “Looking back, it’s been a surprise where I ended up.” He muses. “One of my points to the students is that they cannot possible predict where they end up.” 脴stergaard points out that students shouldn’t be too stressed about trying to figure things out. “They should choose something that triggers them, something that motivates them and see where it takes them,” He adds. 
 
A former officer of the Danish army, S酶ren found his leadership skills to be his strength. Despite finishing a law degree, he pursued a career in management. 
 
Pursuing higher education and improving one’s social skills is what he advises the students to focus on. However, he emphasizes that a person’s educational background doesn’t limit them to that choice for the rest of their lives. “Don’t be scared about it.” S酶ren says. “Just follow your heart.”
 
Tom Niblock
 
As Second Secretary to the Embassy of the United States of America, Tom Niblock recommends that students should take more challenging classes to hone their skills. Studying abroad, in his opinion, is a great way to further expose oneself to international experiences while also learning a new language. Tom spent two years in Ukraine as a camp counsellor and English tutor. “After that experience I decided I should look around and see what kind of careers are out there in International Affairs.” He shares. This exposure led him to pursue a career in Foreign Service.

Final Word
 
IST’s inaugural Career Fair proved to be a successful event in providing guidance and inspiration to secondary students in deciding their future. Guest speakers from a variety of career backgrounds greatly influenced the young minds’ opinions in achieving answers to questions pertaining to their desired professions. By the end of the day, students of IST were more enlightened than before and given some valuable guidance as to what approach, skills, and education is needed for their future careers. Be it medicine, the arts, or social sciences, students were reminded that loving what they do in their careers and being happy is what matters the most.

This event was the result of months of planning and team work. It was planned and organized by IST’s  energetic and forward-looking Advancement and Communications team (headed by Amrita Singh & supported by Frances Tschoepel)  in collaboration with the senior administration of the school including the Director Steve Moody, Secondary Principal Michael Conway and the Counseling Department’s Lee Sterling III.  Supportive parents from the school’s Parent Faculty Organization (PFO) also were very helpful in contacting potential guest speakers in the community. A lot of staff and students contributed to make this a success.
