On the afternoon of May 15, the Career Experience and Development Center, located at No.462 of Wenyuan Road of Yinzhou District, started its trial operation, with the students from Ningbo Economic & Trade School, Kongpu Middle School and Zhuangqiao Middle School as the first group of testers.

With a total construction area of 7710 square meters, the center consists of the occupation tendency testing area on the first floor, which is further divided into occupation exhibition hall, occupation tendency testing room and occupation classroom, and the occupation experience halls on the second to fourth floors, where students can have a better understanding of each occupation in such fields as art, research, intellectual work and business, and thus figure out the suitable occupation for themselves.

With the integrated consideration of ambition, interest and potential, the report aims to provide some scientific basis and help the students in their high school or college application and their choice of majors in college
