Course Aims

This course helps to prepare and bolster the prospects of students in their future employment search amidst a highly competitive job market that demands not only knowledge-intensive skills acquired at university, but prior work experience. Hence, in this course, students will be able to apply their knowledge, oral presentation, research, writing, and critical thinking skills in a workplace setting. Students will also develop further skills not always emphasized in university education, such as initiative, teamwork, workplace social and networking skills, being able to interface with strangers from very divergent life experiences and being exposed to very different norms and values, and general familiarity with a professional environment. The internship hosts will be drawn from a wide variety of governmental, intergovernmental, nongovernmental, media, business, and other organizations in both Hong Kong and abroad — as befits the international, normative, and thematic diversity of our Department of Asian and International Studies.
