I thought resume writing, business networking and job interviews were no longer considered a challenge after six years of pre-MBA professional experience, but thankfully I didn’t have to find out the hard way! Joining various professional workshops and programs organized by the Career Office helped me understand and adapt to the new business environment and cultural context in Hong Kong. What makes these programs effective is because the Career Office is highly aware of the dynamic job market in Asia and ensure that we armed with insights that are applicable. I have not only successfully found an internship in Hong Kong, but successfully moved from the luxury to tech industry!
