Michelle Chan Class of 2018, BCom in Human Resources Management
Part-time Administrative Assistant, Swire Resources Limited

Having the opportunity to intern as an administrative assistant at Swire Resources Limited, a reputable leading giant in brand management, retail and distribution company in Greater China, thrilled me a lot. With over 250 outlets operating in Hong Kong, Macau and mainland China, the company offered me first-hand knowledge and exposure to the operation of human resources in a huge conglomerate like Swire. During my internship, I was responsible for handling employment contracts for new joiners, processing personal data and preparing reference letters. Managing a large amount of confidential and personal information requires a detail-oriented attitude and high accuracy level. Through this experience, I believe taking on more relevant internship opportunities is the best way to embark on your career in the human resources industry, as they would form a solid foundation for one to acquire industry knowledge and gain practical work experience at an early stage.
