Why recruit at HKBU
One of our fundamental roles is to ensure that potential employers can connect with our students. We have designed a number of activities that enable organisations to market yourselves and engage in meaningful conversation with your future employees.
Prospective employers who want to discuss these, or would like to suggest new ideas to meet our students should not hesitate to contact us.
Schedule Company Presentations
An on-campus company presentation is the ideal vehicle to reach out to our students in a format that facilitates a meaningful conversation between your firm and prospective employees. It also directly contributes to your on-campus branding.
Arrange on-campus Interviews
Conducting on-campus interviews allows your firm to have in depth discussions with students interested to learn more about the opportunities you can offer to prospective employees.
Collaborate in Delivering Skills Workshops
Contributing to skills workshops helps our students learn skills you deem important for your organisation, and enables you to meet with students already interested by the nature of your business.
Advertise Job Openings
Employers are invited to post jobs on our University’s e-portal.
