Organised by the SUSS Public Safety and Security Interest Group (PSS IG), the highly-anticipated and inaugural PSS Career Fair saw 14 organisations from the security industry sharing about the various public safety and security-related career opportunities with more than 100 SUSS undergraduates.
Interactions with agency representatives at the career booths.
With interactive booths and panel discussions with agencies from the private, public and social service sectors, students gained insight into their recruitment and selection processes and critical role these agencies play in maintaining Singapore’s public safety and security.
Insightful panel discussions with agency representatives.
The PSS Career Fair started with panel discussions involving representatives from the Singapore Police Force (SPF), Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Centre for Protective Security (CPS), Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB), and Cyber Security Agency (CSA), who gave students a flavour of the potential careers in the security sector.
Panel discussion with DSO National Laboratories and Temasek Laboratories@NTU.
DSO National Laboratories and Temasek Laboratories@NTU shared more about their research focus, projects, and contribution to public security and Singapore’s national defence. During the panel discussion, students explored various research opportunities and interesting career prospects with these agency representatives.
Sharing by SCDF and ISOS.
Subsequently, agency representatives from Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and International SOS (ISOS) led a risk assessment and safety talk. Besides providing attendees with glimpses of the local risk assessment scene, it also gave students a deeper comprehension of the job prospects available in the profession.
The Career Fair concluded with a sharing session by the Singapore Anti-Narcotic Association (SANA), which delved deeper into the social service sector and the heart-warming stories about lives they had impacted throughout their careers.
The inaugural Career Fair owes its success to the SUSS School of Humanities and Behavioural Sciences (SHBS), participating agencies and SUSS students!
