Leaving the certainty of school and college lives behind for the chaos of the professional world can be both
exciting and daunting for youngsters. They are on the path to their future, hoping to bring their dreams and aspirations to life, but are filled with trepidation about the several obstacles along the way and the skills needed to overcome them. They face challenges like articulately communicating their opinions and concerns, becoming a strong young leader, and amicably collaborating with new teammates.

SoME’s Aspiring Professionals Programme (APP) to meet young undergraduates and graduates’
unique needs and challenges. It is designed to make them more curious, creative, confident,
competent, collaborative, and communicative as they aim to create a space for themselves in the professional world.

Topics include storytelling, speech writing, and debates that bring out the latent talents of learners, instilling confidence in them. These essential skills prepare them to face job interviews with conviction.

Using the Six Cs as the foundation, the course further explores concepts like dealing with fear, public speaking,
uncertainty, low self-esteem, and mental hygiene. It also encourages critical thinking and facing audiences fearlessly.
