Education and Careers

Last week, Lift guided you through the latest technology and the advantages and disadvantages of using it, especially for young Cambodians. In this issue, Lift takes you into the education world of students when they are looking for jobs after they have finished high school or graduated from university. It also raise some questions regarding those issues.

Every year, in the Kingdom of Cambodia,  hundreds of thousands of students graduate and go looking for jobs based on their skill, knowledge and experience. Because  the nation’s human resources are growing more and more, students need to compete with one another for good jobs. The question is,  why do some students get jobs while others find them hard to get? (See page 3 and page 10.)

Furthermore, after graduat-ion, some students decide to open their own businesses at an early age to provide educational materials to customers and provide university students with opportunities to gain experience (pages 4 and 5).

Young people have to make decisions about their education, depending on their family’s situation and their knowledge. One of Lift’s reporters discusses the decisions  those students make in terms of pursuing their studies or stopping them and helping with their family’s business (pages 6 and 7).

This week, Lift speaks to a young mathematics student who entered an international competition and was awarded the highest score. She shares her experiences in achieving  this sucess (page 8).
This is a great opportunity for you to gain diverse experiences, so please don’t miss it! Thanks!
