Elaine Chan Class of 2019, BBA in Marketing
Internship Trainee, Hong Kong Airlines

Being a big fan of aviation, having the opportunity to work at Hong Kong Airlines was a dream came true for me. As an Internship Trainee in the Human Resources Department, I was responsible for arranging training and staff development programmes for staff. Since Hong Kong Airlines is one of the fastest growing airlines in Asia, this working experience exposed me to a very dynamic environment with first-hand knowledge of the rapidly-changing market landscape of the industry. I think having a good working attitude and interpersonal skills are crucial to developing a career in the aviation sector, just like the customer-service industry at large. My tips on landing on your dream job are to actively take on relevant internship opportunities and building useful contacts in networking events organised by the School, alumni associations or other external organisations.
