I have always been interested in finding my dearest daughter Ji-min’s dream. Finally, I had the opportunity to fulfill my wish. On a warm breezy Saturday afternoon, I visited ‘Korea Job World’ that offers various work experiences with my wife, Ji-min, and our unborn second child Bok-man (birth name) still inside my wife. It was a day I will never forget: Ji-min’s dream grew an inch, and me and my wife’s happiness was fulfilled.
A year ago, I visited a work experience center in Jamsil, holding the hand of a physically challenged child of Seoul Jeongmun School. With that as a momentum, I have always thought about taking Ji-min to such place if she gets a little older. Just at the right time, I heard that Hyosung employees are provided with an opportunity to visit ‘Korea Job World’. Hoping to go with Ji-min, I immediately applied for it and was selected. So the whole family looked forward to it.
Since its opening in last May, ‘Korea Job World’ is visited by many people, because it provides opportunities for children and adolescents to explore different jobs and helps them choose their career path and occupation. Children can enjoy seeing and experiencing fun things at the same time in various spaces such as Career Design Center, Children’s Experience Center, Adolescents’ Experience Center, and Occupational World Center. It is also beneficial because children can experience the occupations of their interest in advance. Ji-min also went to explore various jobs for the first time among older kids, visiting experience spaces such as the fire station, police station, performing arts school, and fashion show.

Next she visited the police station. She seemed quite like a policewoman in a police uniform and cap. There were constant compliments from people around her, saying, “What a pretty police officer!” As her dad, I was flattered. She was quite skilled in using the nightstick in her hand. She directed traffic on the street by moving it up and down or from side to side.
I hope Ji-min and my unborn second child find their dreams. Many children, even after they grow up, wander around as they could not find their dreams, forced to accept the futures recommended by others. So the day in ‘Korea Job World’ was really special. Ji-min could not find a job that is just right for her because she is only four; but just experiencing the world of jobs was enough, because she showed interest in the experience. On our way home, she looked up at me and my wife and asked, “Are we going to come back again?” I think today will serve as a momentum for Ji-min to find a job that will make her heart race.
