"We are very impressed with the student development services at CityU. Nowadays, the scope of career counselling in the mainland has been widened. Graduates can select their preferable employers and vice-versa, as a result, graduates are more proactive in seeking jobs. Through the visit, we obtained valuable advice and inspirations for the future development of career counselling of our university,"L said Ms Cathy Xie , Career Counsellor of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Instead of emphasizing solely on securing jobs, career guidance will be broadened to include students' whole person development. "We will focus on both student development and liaison with prospective employers," added Ms Xie. Ms Tan Yuxu , supervisor of the Career Education & Placement Centre of the Shanghai University of Finance & Economics agreed, "We aim to start as early as possible, it is important to help student think about their own development and career path once they are admitted to universities."
"With thorough discussion and sharing, the exchange activities also enhanced CityU's understanding of the work of our counterparts in the mainland," said Mr Raysen Cheung , Senior Career Counsellor of the SDS. SDS also looks forward to further cooperation with mainland universities on various student development projects.
