Career Guidance Program

Inspired by DAS mission to empower each student to be a thinking and life-long learner, and in an effort to support the students to choose a suitable major for them, we will create the “Career Guidance Program”. The idea of creating this program is derived from DAS Alumni Council. It aims at helping the students from grades 9-12 to get adequate information about the different careers. It also helps them make the right decision in regards to matching their majors for the right career. The procedure for this program is:

  1. Every student, from both Boys’ and Girls’ sections, shortlists the careers they are planning to pursue in the future.
  2. The counselor creates a list of the student- names and their choices.
  3. The counselor has a list of DAS alumni in different careers and distributes the students according to their career choice.
  4.  Every DAS alumnus follows up with 5 students through emails and gives them information and advices about their careers.
  5. The alumni will continue to follow up with the students until they graduate from DAS. The students could possibly continue to request their guidance even during their university studies.

We expect that parents cooperate with us and explain this idea to their children to make use of this program.
