To attract more attendees and make the event interactive, the MIS committee designed a door prize session for all MIS students and invited schools.

Even though the career fest was virtual, 12th grade high school students were still enthusiastic and enjoyed the activities, parents were also invited to freely join this program. Sean Keleyan, a grade 12 Science student, has a pleasant experience because he had the opportunity to learn more about world famous universities and get valuable information he needed most. MIS Career Fest is one of the most awaited events by grade 12 students. It provided an overview of some selected universities around the world, which grade 12 students might consider pursuing their education after graduating from MIS. Sean was asked about what major he would like to take while in university and he expressed his desire to take Architecture or Computer Science. He reiterated that in Architecture he could learn how to design and build modern, strong, and sustainable buildings. And for Computer Science, he could learn more about how to design websites, programs, applications, and software to embrace the high-tech future.

For Sheren Lim, a grade 12 Social student, the promulgation of MIS career fest was very good, because with this program, students could see which university they were interested in because each university explained well their campus program. It's really fun when you join the MIS career fest program, because you can see and interact through questions and answers with several universities, and can also answer quizzes prepared by the participated institutions. Sheren will be taking Visual Design Communication (VDC) because she is interested in the world of design especially in advertising and film where these subjects will be studied in the VDC department.

The MIS Career Fest has been proven to help students in deciding not only the majors they want to pursue in, but also the university they want to go to. Throughout the years, lots of MIS alumni have been accepted to various universities that were exhibited in the MIS Career Fest.


See you on the next MIS Career Fest!
