As the Internet has become an indispensable part of life, so has digital marketing become the trend of the business world, and it is my goal to more deeply explore this particular subject area. To this end, I joined Fimmick, an agency that specialises in providing digital marketing solutions for clients to meet their business objectives through building online reach and engagement, customer loyalty, brand advocacy and etc. As an Account Executive, my primary responsibilities are to assist in the development of digital campaigns for my clients in terms of encouraging more target customers to take actions, both online and offline in order to optimise O2O (Online-to-offline) conversion.

Class of 2016, MSc in Applied Economics

When I chose to launch my career in CMEC Comtrans International Co., Ltd., I was prepared to embrace the corporate culture of ‘Value Your Trust Globally’ and the business operation as freight forwarders. An incredible amount of preparation is required to become familiar with the corporate environment. As an accountant, being able to work independently and with others in a team is essential. Questions that you need to ask yourself: 1) are you able to effectively carry out the individual tasks of the job?; 2) are you fully aware of your work duties? Some aspects of the job may require you to take up a leadership role while sometimes you need to take up a supportive role. Therefore, different communication styles are tailored accordingly. Even if you have not had much internship experience previously, you can still obtain valuable training when you join various workshops offered on campus and by playing different roles in group projects. Your experience can help you to develop strong interpersonal skills effectively for your future career as well. View more

Just like many other students who studied Economics and/or Finance, I hoped to enter the financial industry in Hong Kong after graduation. As one of the biggest and most famous financial institutions in Hong Kong, Bank of China stood out as the top company I wanted to work for. It is crucial to understand the industry and company well in advance as well as the skills and knowledge needed for the position you are looking to apply for.

Class of 2016, BCom in Accountancy

I chose to launch my career in Wells Fargo because its Management Associate Program offers a great platform to rotate across various businesses, and to gain experience from a bird’s-eye view. I am having my first rotation in Risk, Planning and Control and will start my second rotation on the trading floor soon. I believe having a good attitude is the most valuable quality at work. Employers also look for candidates who are proactive and willing to learn new things. My advice for fresh business graduates is to be true to yourself and never pretend to be someone else in the interview. Take it easy! View more

DHL is a world-leading logistics company with a good brand image. Its employees stand a good chance of experiencing different job rotations and expanding their network. It will be a great starting point to build up my career, and that is why I have joined DHL. Currently, I am working for Apple operations as a team leader for packing and dispatch team. I have been rotated for different operations like Adidas and Lego. As a Management Trainee, we need to be a fast learner and eager to accept challenges. If we are not passionate about our job with a can-do attitude, we could not survive and build up a successful career. More than that, Right First Time mindset is also an important competency for climbing up the corporate ladder in DHL. I would like to advise the business students who would like to step into the Logistics world to be proactive at learning and working. Do not focus on the salary only.

Class of 2013, BCom in Human Resources Management

After graduation, I decided to develop my career in the field of learning and development. With a clear goal, I applied to the training administration department of a local computer training company. I was accepted as a training officer to deliver computer training. In order to achieve better performance at work, I was keen on equipping myself with technical knowledge and delivery skills. I was involved in a variety of training classes, ranging from government to corporate training. I truly believe that practicing is the best way to sharpen my skills. To further develop my training and facilitating skills, I decided to join Jebsen & Co. Ltd. as a training assistant. Although some might question my decision on taking a lower position, I found this opportunity a great stepping-stone for me to engage with a family of premium global brands. At Jebsen, I am responsible for four Business Units, and each business unit operates with different goals and procedures. It was like working with four different companies at the same time. I was exposed to new and challenging opportunities, including a wide range of engagement projects such as Walk for Millions, Porsche 60th Anniversary Employee Event and Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. With the support of my colleagues and management, I was provided with valuable development opportunities, and was promoted as Organizational Development Executive. Serving as the “Onboarding” touch point of the Employee Value Proposition Programme, I designed the onboarding journey for all New Joiners, helping them adopt Jebsen’s culture, and expand their connections. With a broadened scope, the new position allows me to obtain wider exposure. Going through all the difficulties, opportunities and changes in my career, I have learnt that being proactive and striving for every opportunity are essential. My motto is “no matter if you are at mountaintops or in deep valleys of despair, be optimistic. It is the faith that leads to success!” View more

Class of 2012 , BBA in Human Resources Management

As a business graduate who majored in Human Resources Management, I focused on choosing a career that is people oriented. While MTR is a large and influential company that connects local communities, it also treasures its employees and is keen on developing their growth. We are therefore connected. I joined as a Human Resources Associate and was granted with various rotation opportunities and exposures to appreciate the Corporation from different angles. All the happy and fruitful rotation experiences were engraved in my MTR career. Upon completion of my trainee programme, I have been working as a Human Resources Development Officer in the Management Training and Development Department. Customer service training, managerial training and mobile learning are the major areas I focus on. Only 4 years of service years, I consider myself as a novice in the Corporation. There is still a long way to go in building a successful career. Being proactive and willing to work as a team player are some crucial qualities that most companies are looking for. Build up and develop your own competitive edge so that you can show how you can benefit and contribute to the company. “Success doesn’t come to you. You go to it.” - Marva Collins. View more
