Particularly during the 2013 vocational advice season, Hoa Sen University is introducing the program to students on its Vocational Website: http://huongnghiep.hoasen.edu.vn/. With its multiple choice form to be filled out by the students, this website assists them in determining what their future jobs may be that are appropriate to their interest, advantages, and situation. Also, in this website students and their parents are referred to the Campus Tour 2013 program which provides information on future development trends of some professional branches in the country and in the world. In addition, students and/or their parents can forward their questions about future occupations to this website. Specialists will respond to the questions and their advice will be forwarded to the students or parents.
