Career Advisory

The PGL team provides career advisory services to students and adult learners. Schedule an appointment via NUS TalentConnect with your dedicated Career Advisor or email for more information.

“As an international student, I faced challenges finding a job in a less-than-optimistic job market. After utilising CFG's career advisory services, my doubts and concerns were quickly put to rest. CFG provided very valuable information about the local job market, industries, and the technical skills required. Additionally, they assisted me in refining my resume and provided opportunities to conduct highly targeted and professional mock interviews. More importantly, CFG helped me build confidence and alleviate anxieties throughout the process of seeking employment. The knowledgeable advisors and comprehensive resources have been instrumental in helping me secure a job that I am passionate about and set me on the path toward a successful career.”

School of Computing Postgraduate student

“CFG has helped shaped my resume and cover letter before a submission to a role at American Express. These efforts have helped land me a first round of technical interview. Upon its completion, CFG also guided me through my fear of behavioral interviews, which helped me pass the second and final round of interviews. Overall, CFG offers a suite of very useful information sessions on what to expect and what to do throughout the recruitment process. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone who have the slightest uncertainty of what to do / expect in their career or job search to enlist the helpful resources readily available of the CFG.”

College of Design and Engineering Postgraduate student

“I enrolled in the SGUS Programme in FinTech for non-Technical Executives during the time of shrinkage of jobs in the banking industry. The CFG team guided us in tangibles like resume writing and interview skills, but more importantly, supported us in intangibles like confidence building, motivation and moral support. We came from all walks of life and background, yet CFG is able to coach us all with the right expertise and professionalism. It was their passion, hard work and sincerity (in wanting us all to do well) that makes my case a success story.”
