Mission: Bridging the gap between students, career centre and the corporate world
SMU Career Champions (CC) is a group of student leaders who are trained by the Career Centre to provide basic career coaching to undergraduate students. We are trained to conduct resume reviews, mock interviews and also give internship advice.
All CC members have to complete their mandatory internship requirements at SMU before they are able to conduct independent career consults. Associate CC members are trained, but they have not completed their mandatory internship requirement. Hence, you will see them conducting coaching together with a fully qualified CC member as a form of “on-the-job” training. This is to ensure all coaching sessions by CC members are conducted to the highest standard.
Consultations are offered every Wednesday and Friday, from 3.30 to 5.30pm. You can book an appointment with us on OnTRACII, or walk in to the Career Centre during these time slots.
Beyond 1-to-1 coaching sessions, CC also organises events, some of which include:
- Resume Rescue Session
- Resume vetting for students
- Welfare Drive
- For past welfare drives, we support organisations that engaged the less fortunate such as handmade cookies by Flour Power.
- Career Discovery Series
- Professionals from various industries share their experiences and answer students’ burning questions. Past industries covered include product management, consulting, and tech sales.
- Constellations (networking event with SMU seniors)
- Participants can hear from current SMU seniors about their internship experiences and gain industry knowledge as well as tips on how to get into their dream companies.
- Professional Networking Night - (networking event with industry professionals)
- Participants will get the chance to network with professionals from various industries in a lighthearted setting. Past professionals who have been invited have worked in companies such as Amazon, Citibank, Grab, JP Morgan and Shopee.
- Company Visit
- For past company visits, we have visited Moomoo, SGX and Acclime
- Resume workshops in collaboration with or for members of other SMU clubs
