For Dongguk University and Donggukians, the fall semester of 2022 means a lot as it is the first semester to bring back a complete face-to-face class since COVID-19 began in early 2020. Students are looking forward to coming back to the campus, taking classes, and making new relationships. As a flare celebrating a new era of Dongguk University and to boost the depressed atmosphere, "2022 Energize Dongguk Job & Career Update Festival" has begun from September 1st.
Dongguk University used to hold a large-scale offline job fair in the early 2010s. However, as it was considered to fall behind the trend to open an offline job fair, since events could be held online, most universities, including Dongguk University, stopped offline job fair. Moreover, COVID-19 has made it more difficult to open offline events. However, universities were aware of the necessity of a job fair for the students to get useful information related to employment. Therefore, some universities began to open an online job fair. Dongguk University has also been running several job and career related online events and lectures through Dream PATH.
However, online events lack students' participation compared to offline events. Moreover, it would be more helpful for students to face people from companies in person and get information about their interested job or ask questions. The 2022 Energize Dongguk Job and Career Festival will be a perfect opportunity for the students to meet recruiters from various companies and get the information they need to prepare for a better future life after graduation.
2022 Energize Dongguk Job & Career Update Festival is the largest offline festival since COVID-19 broke out and every offline event disappeared. It is scheduled from September 1st to 7th. During the festival period, recruiters from a total of about 300 different companies visit Dongguk. Donggukians can visit the booths of their interested companies and get one-to-one consultation. In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while waiting in a line, reservations can be made in advance by using the QR code. The list of the participating companies can be checked on the 2022 Energize Dongguk Job & Career Update Festival homepage.
Various events about employment, foundation, and career choice hosted by each college and department are also prepared. Students preparing for field practice can meet recruiters from the companies participating in the field practice program and get specific information they want. To help the lower grade students make a decision about what they want to do in their future, careers exploration booth is open for them. In addition, free hair setting and make up service booths, free ID photo service booths, and giveaway events were prepared. During September 6th and 7th, you can get personal color diagnosis and interview image making and consulting, so those who are interested may check it.
Dongguk University is showing excellence in employment rate in comparison with other universities with similar national college entrance exam results. In addition, Dongguk University was ranked 9th in the university evaluation conducted by Joongang Ilbo last year, which was the highest has recorded ever so far. The Dongguk Post hopes 2022 Energize Dongguk Job & Career Update Festival to be a flare heralding a successful new semester and a booster for Dongguk University to reach a higher level.
