It is getting more and more difficult to get a job after graduating university. Lots of university graduates are still studying at the campus library. University has been losing its function as `a hall of learning.` On this account most universities have recently been aiding undergraduates with diverse programs to prepare for their future careers.
The Dale Carnegie Course (DCC) is one of the UOS programs that support students?job seeking. Actually the class is not the only one at the UOS. DCC is a self-development training program named after Dale Carnegie who originated the concept of `human management.` In that course, the know-hows of `human management,` such as relationships among people and self control of the mind are clearly demonstrated. In our school the class has been provided since 2005. There are about 15 universities that offer DCC including the UOS.
Professor Lee Do-won, the vice-chief at the Office of Student Affairs, condensed the goals of the DCC into two things. "The first is to inspire student leadership and the second is strengthening of capacity in job seeking." The professor explained that the contents of the DCC lecture are useful during interviews for employment and social life. He said "Most students feel great satisfaction from this class."
However, not every student has the opportunity to participate in the Dale Carnegie Course. Usually the Office of Student Affairs selects the students prior to the beginning of the semester. Only students who have outstanding grades in each department are qualified for application. "Some new strict rules have been made in this semester to enhance the quality of the course." said Professor Lee. In a word, a firm preparedness is necessary for students to complete this class successfully.
Lastly Professor Lee gave counsel to all UOS students. "I ask students who will take the course this term to be present with honesty. Freshmen should prepare step by step to get a chance to take the DCC when they are in their senior year." It seemed that professor Lee has full confidence in the DCC class. NEWS@UOS hopes that students of the UOS achieve progress through this course.
