For about a month I worked as a teenager reporter in JobWorld teenager press corps. Job World is a place for students to help them experience and learn about abundant jobs and assist them look for their future jobs.
In the first meeting, I had a lecture from a member from a national team of paper plane, Junguk Lee(I’m not sure if this spelling is correct…. You can search with his Korean Name->이정욱). He gave a lecture about how to choose a job.
“Find your hobby first and then look for the professional job that fits with you and you are confident of.”
(I written down the quotes from my memory so there can be some mistakes but I hope you to understand)
This quote was very touching to me because I was having a hard time about choosing my future job. However, now I think my concern is solved a bit.
After listening to his lecture, we had a competition of flying a paper plane. Our team won the competition of making the paper planes go the farthest. So, I received a Bluetooth speaker and delicious breads. I received a tumbler as well for being a reporter of JobWorld teenager press corps.
After the MEETING – Freely collecting news materials in JobWorld
After the meeting I had to write down 4 or more articles related to JobWorld and this Job World teenager press corps. I wrote the articles about ‘CAREER PLANNING HALL’, ‘FUTURE JOB LAB(I translated by myself so, if you want to search for further information search with these words in Korean->미래직업 LAB)’, ‘YOUTH EXPERIENCE HALL’ and ‘FEELING OF BEING A REPORTER IN JOBWORLD TEENAGER PRESS CORPS’. Writing down the articles was very helpful for me to arrange my thoughts about my future. Additionally, having a counselling after having a vocational test was the most helpful experience. I was able to map out my future basically with the advice of the counselor.
In the last meeting, I had a lecture from Seoul National University, Seungwoo Cho(I’m not sure if this spelling is correct again so, if you are curious about him, I think you can search with his Korean name-> 조승우) about ‘What is the best way of studying effectively’. I learned new way of studying and I thought that this might be able to help me get good scores at school.
“MOTIVATION, RESULT and HOW is very important in studying.”
(Again, I written down the quotes from my memory so there can be some mistakes but I hope you to understand) On this day, I received the appointment letter and also the prize money for working as the reporter at there.
This is my experience from working as a reporter. I would like to apply again if I have a chance because it was very informative. I think the best experience was having a counsel with a counselor and listening to lectures with famous people which can assist me in planning my future.
