With the objective of broadening students’ perspective towards the world of work and developing their qualities and potentials towards a specific career field, the BANL program committee has organized the Industrial Mentoring Scheme (IMS) to our students.
This year, we have invited nine alumni from banking & finance industry, government sectors, and business consulting firm to act as our industrial mentors. At the IMS kick-off meeting which held on 2 March 2019, the mentors shared their industrial experience and job seeking tips to the mentees.
One of the mentees, Janice Fung, said “I am glad that I had an opportunity to join the Industrial Mentoring Scheme. After chatting with my mentor, Ms. Mani So, I understood more about the working environment in the banking industry, especially in the risk management field. She shared her working experiences with me, including what she encountered at work and how she applied the knowledge learned in CityU to her job duties etc. Through her sharing, I identified my career goal more clearly. I hope to keep in touch with Mani so that I can learn more from her!”
