vision of the professional career world and what kind of
challenges that may face before choosing their majors.

completing psychometric tool ( Tamheed ) and the advising session.
2. The students will understand and learn about the major and the field
that related to their ambition ,and they will choose their career path upon
real experience.
• The simulation will be in two different parts:
• In this step students will observe and learn about the specific job
roles, and having the chance to ask questions
• In this part students will experience the specific career by using the
tools and have the chance to live the job as it is in reality.
