“Hunt the hunter” workshop provides insight into job application

15 Sep, 2015
On 15 September 2015, the School of Business hosted a job hunting workshop titled "Hunt the Hunters", attracting over 80 students. 

The workshop gave students insight into the recruitment process from the employer's perspective, and tips to stand out from the crowd. The main speakers, Dr. Leo Ho and Mr. Teddy Chan, were both senior business executives with over 20 years of corporate experience. Dr. Ho now serves as an Adjunct Professor at the School. The main purpose of this workshop, as explained by Dr. Ho, is “to help students better equip themselves for the corporate world in the future”. 

This event marked the beginning of the upcoming series of workshops, all of which will form an integrated career development programme. The content will include personality test, CV writing and mock interviews. Students were mostly excited about the MBTI test, which is a personality test used worldwide for matching one's personality type with specific job categories. "Only love what you do can you do it well," said Dr. Ho. "That's why finding out what you like is especially important.” 

Participants were keen on joining the workshop in hope of getting some useful job search advice after graduation. "We will graduate in just 10 months. Knowing what works and what doesn't in the job application process definitely helps,” said Chen Jianlang from MScAAF programme.

The School had hosted workshops on the same subject in the past years. Riding on previous successes, we will continue to invite trainers to conduct one-on-one career coaching in the following semester.
