Many college students are aware of the importance of career planning yet they may not have clear ideas how to plan it. Most courses offered by their academic programs are aimed for developing discipline-specific knowledge instead of job hunting skills. This course, through career-focused training, reinforces their skills in job hunting. They can better understand the employment situation in the global job market. Although the course content revolves around career planning and employment situation, it also enhances the students’ English language proficiency as the course will be conducted in English language and the use of the course materials will also be English-only texts. Students’ immersion in an English-only context will allow them to gain familiarity with and confidence in global job market's English use.
