On Wednesday June 8, Dwight School Seoul presents Ignite Your Future, a conference exploring career pathways for our students. This is our annual Career Day, with outside speakers joining us both in person and live via video conference.
With representatives from various industries, some of which will be connecting with students in the outdoor expo, this will provide our students and families with a fantastic opportunity to engage in a fun and interactive event.
Speakers at Ignite Your Future include: Jem Kim, CEO BriteBelly, Casey Lartigue Jr., Co-President of Freedom Speakers International; Dr. Hyun Jung Kim, Vaccine Lead at Sanofi; Rockey Yoo, Senior Foreign Attorney at Shin & Kim; Dr. Taewook Shin, Senior Director at Coupang; Jungim Park, Portfolio Manager at Meritz Asset Management; Dr. Abigail Copiaco, Professor of Engineering & IT at University of Dubai; and; Sam Machour, Executive Vice President/CQO Samsung Biologics.
"We're excited to be presenting a vast array of leaders and professionals in their respective fields," said Ms Kaleena Carter, Director of University and Career Counseling.
"The day will offer our students a chance to interact in person as well as identify key people that they can connect with as they explore career pathways."
Parents and community members are welcome to watch online as the event will be streamed via YouTube and LinkedIn. Viewers online can also interact, posting questions which may be addressed during the live speaker sessions.
Students will participate in both a live speaker session in the school auditorium and the live outdoor expo. Students will also be able to watch other speakers online via the livestream.
The event begins at 10:30am, June 8. Dwight School Seoul looks forward to providing students with the opportunity to 'ignite their future' at this Career Day 2022.
