 The first special lecture on corporates was given by the senior director of ‘Yogiyo’ Jaehyuk Yoo. Director Yoo focused on the objectives of working in a company and realistic advice for job seekers. He said, “the reason you are working in a company shouldn’t be for money, but to fulfill the ‘mission’ of the company.” Also, he emphasized that “’mission’ is the reason for which the company stands, and should be distinguished from the ‘vision’ which is the process to fulfill it,” and asked students to look for the ‘mission’ of the company. Director Yoo also introduced the story of how the delivery app came in to place, explaining “Startups start from forming ideas about the existence of the company.”


Furthermore, Director Yoo gave 5 tips for job seekers. First, he recommended having a person who has a lot of experience and gone through the rise and fall as a mentor. He explained that “this person will be able to provide deep insight compared to people who got through in a short amount of time or those who have only succeeded.” Second, he emphasized the importance of not going “all-in.” He told students “It’s not easy to tell if the work suits your aptitude at first,” and “it’s good to keeping the old job while working in the new company, and transition when you have the confidence that the new job fill suit you.” Next, he recommended students to find growing parts of the industry and to make “Elevator Speech” a habit. He underscored “practicing delivering the main points and conclusion first to the decision-making person.” Finally, he asked students to say things clearly and simply so that middle school students would be able to understand. The special lecture concluded with a Q&A session.

In addition, Chairman Lee expanded on the topic of ‘the recent shift in trend of NCS based recruitment process,’ and stressed the importance of preparation time for debate interviews. He told students that “you need to ready for a number of possible cases at the time of debate, and debate interview is crucial to public enterprises.” He gave the example of the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service not considering math area in evaluation for administrative office and evaluation office, advising “It is a strategy to find areas that you can avoid your weaknesses while taking advantage of your strengths.”
