Comments and opinions
What makes Sinopia orientation counseling different from any other, is the fact that it allows you to understand what you really want to find in your academic/professional project. In doing so, it helps you clarify the direction you want to take and why.
The most useful thing for me is that it made me think about my passions and how to match them with real professional areas. It also gave the chance to discover jobs I did not know existed. I recommend these orientation sessions and I would tell people: “Do you still not know who you really are? Then you must go there and find your passions.”
I found these orientation sessions to be very helpful in order to deeply understand myself, to discover my inclinations and the professional area to engage myself in. Sinopia helped me identify my ideal academic path and my future career direction.
