CAREER PREPARATION

A few words about career preparation

Career Preparation Program

LIT Career Preparation Program is for students who are planning to seek employment in an English speaking country. LIT’s Career Preparation Program is designed to help students focus on the skills necessary to be successful in a job interview and at workplaces. This three-month course offers extensive practice where students can learn to tackle common interview questions effectively and accurately; gain exposure to various business writing styles and compose effective and persuasive written texts; and speak professionally and give powerful presentations.

By the end of the course, students will be able to feel confident in their speaking and writing, and be able to express themselves clearly and comfortably. By participating in final projects (i.e. a mock interview, a writing assignment and a group presentation) at the end of each module, students will get a chance to apply and combine newly-gained strategies and receive teacher feedback.
