Master of Public Administration (MPA)
When I majored in Pharmacy at the university, I recognized that many patients were poor or did not have reliable families. I realized “It is more important to prevent disease with ‘social safety net’ than to cure people with ‘medicine’.” Thus, I became a public official who could help the vulnerable with social safety net. To follow up on my resolution, I passed the Higher Civil Service Examination one year after I graduated from university and gained the certificate of pharmacist from the ministry of Welfare and Health. Even though I majored in ‘Pharmacy’ when I was an undergraduate student, I again studied ‘Law’ in college using my spare time while working as a public official. It has been 10 years since I started to serve my country as a mid-level official at the Ministry of Employment and Labor (MOEL). Moreover, I worked for the Assistant Secretary to the President for Employment and Labor at Cheong-Wa-Dae for one year, from 2012 to 2013. I participated in publishing “A White Paper on Employment and Labor of Korean Government (2008-2012)”. Also, I administered many committees including professors, experts, other stakeholders to discuss how to coordinate policies. I planned, implemented, and evaluated “Plans for Innovation Public Employment Center” in 2018, 2019.
