About 100 students and scholarship recipients from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) gained valuable insights meeting with business leaders from different fields at a roundtable sharing on 6 October.
The Executive Roundtable Forum on Millennial Employability was the kick-off event for a series of training sessions for Golden Key Club members in 2015–16.
Guest speakers include Ms Rita Chan, Regional HR Director (Asia), Jardine Lloyd Thompson Ltd; Mr Trevor Tam, Managing Director, Goldman Sachs (Asia) L.L.C.; and Ms Priscilla Wong, Principal Consultant, EPC Consulting (Beijing).
The speakers shared their experiences and observations in hiring and working with the millennial generation during the 45-minute roundtable discussion.
The forum was facilitated by Dr Andrew Ma, Executive Director of Chorev Consulting International Limited.
The Golden Key Club, founded in April 2015, provides a unique platform for CityU scholarship recipients across different disciplines to bond and work together and further strengthen their competitiveness in career development.
Two subsequent training sessions will further equip CityU students for the workplace before their graduation. The first series, “Developing the Employability Key before Entering into the Workplace,” was held on 19 October. The second, “Sharpening Your Keys—Bridging the Mindset Gap and Social Capital Gap for the Millennial Generation,” will be held on 12 November.
