DJA (Dream Job Academy) brings together individuals facing issues with career exploration and provides for them an uninhibited, unintimidating and supportive environment to discuss their life stories, beliefs and fear.
The entire process was eye-opening to me. The application made me identify what my skills and values are, and how various professions would match up with them. The site visits themselves were incredibly interesting and allowed me to gauge what it is I would like to do in the future.
I personally felt the effort that everyone was making to provide a positive experience and it helped raise my standards for interpersonal relationships.
Though the [Work Study] position was not related to my field of study in particular (Political Science), it nevertheless helped me to develop very valuable transferable skills that will be helpful in my future career.
