Students meet record number of companies in Business Career Fair

The 2019 edition of the Business Career Fair attracted a record 35 companies, including S&P 500, multinational companies and startups. A wide spectrum of industries including banking, fintech, IT, accounting, property, retail, hospitality, and logistics were present at the September fair. This was a great chance for our students to meet recruiters, understand first-hand what was on offer, and maybe even land an interview on-campus.

In her opening remarks, Dr Isabel Yan, Assistant Dean (Career Services) said, "The annual Business Career Fair is a big event for our students to have a dialogue with recruiters and get to know more about various industries in the business world. It is very encouraging to see that the number of participating companies has been rising over the years. We sincerely hope that our business partners can continue to support and employ more of our local students."

Professor Albert Ip, Convenor of the Business Career Development Advisory Committee, commended CityU students for their good quality. He said, "We are glad to learn from recruiters that CityU students are talented, have good attitude and show leadership attributes at work. These good qualities are essential in the business world today. As the biggest business school in Hong Kong, CityU works closely with our corporate partners to address their talent needs."

This fourth annual edition of the fair was organised by the Business Career Development team of the College of Business.
