Junior Affiliate Convention for College and SHS Students September 23, 2016
"What it's like in the real world - career pathways and lifelong learning" where we can discuss how to make career decisions after graduation, how to invest in lifelong learning and how to build a portfolio of activities that set you up for success. Some people estimate over half of the jobs in 2040 don't exist today. In a world that is always changing, learning will be the only constant throughout your career. How can you use the time in university to build a solid foundation to enter the workforce, and where you can go to acquire further skills to advance throughout your career? How can you use your youth as an advantage to introduce new ways of thinking, while learning from the skills of those with more experience?

Message from the NUSSC President
On behalf of the National University Supreme Student Council (NUSSC), a partner organization of PEARSON Asia and PEMEA, I welcome the participants of the Juniors Affiliate Convention of the International Conference on Educational Measurement and Evaluation.
University graduates, right after graduation, are always confronted with question: “what is next for me?”
This may seem to be a question framed so simply, but graduates find it difficult to answer. They find it difficult to answer because of the various challenges that the 21st century market post – the must for mastery of 21st century skills, the highly competitive job market, to name a few.
The Junior Affiliate Convention, with the theme "21st Century Skills: Lifelong Learning and Career Pathways", will enable our delegates to get through the rudiments of 21st century world vis-à-vis making career decisions, capitalizing on the mastery of 21st century skills. Hence, enabling them to make informed judgements with regard to their careers.
It is my hope that you will enjoy this wonderful learning opportunity!
Thank you very much.
For the love of Education,
TRISTAN L. PIOSANG
