2,000 Students Learn About Future Opportunities at Career Fair Organized by Caring For Cambodia

Prince Foundation & Chen Zhi Scholars Take Part

About 2,000 high school students from two high schools in Siem Reap learnt about future prospects and received valuable counsel from different experienced work professionals in a career fair organized by Caring for Cambodia (CFC). The career fair is one of the many events organized by CFC in Career Preparation Program to help high school students secure the right opportunities.

Prince Foundation was one of the corporates participating in the Career Fair event with representatives manning a booth titled “Achieve your dreams with Prince Group” where interested students learnt about the seven main business units and career opportunities within Prince Group at Prasat Bakong High School, Aranh Sakor Cuthbert Primary and Junior High School.

14 scholarship recipients who earlier received the Chen Zhi Scholarship also volunteered and helped design the content and the booth to assist fellow Cambodian youth looking for better career opportunities.

“A career fair is an important way for students to network and gain information firsthand and make informed decisions over their future,” said Rebecca Large, Deputy Country Director at Caring for Cambodia. “We are pleased to have organized a career fair that has seen the largest ever turnout in recent years and we hope it inspires Cambodian students to dare to dream bigger.”

“The pandemic has undoubtedly redefined the learning environment and the types of careers that high school students and university graduates will need to consider,” said Gabriel Tan, Chief Communications Officer of Prince Holding Group. “With the career fair, we hope students received the information they need at a vital juncture to enhance their competitiveness in the workplace.”

Launched in 2006, the Career Preparation program helps more than 3,000 students every year. Students graduating from Caring for Cambodia schools are 18 times more likely to enroll in universities compared to the national average.
