2022 Internship Highlighs

Alliance Construction Materials - Woo Shiu Hong Bonton

Firstly, upon handling the HR routine duties, I can familiarize with the hands-on experience in this business field, which significantly broadened my horizons and allowed me to learn beyond textbooks. I can apply my knowledge and skills to practice, which further deepens my understanding of HR concepts. Secondly, I have learned that thorough preparation is crucial before a project occurs since rehearsal or potential risk management is the key to success. Thirdly, I have gained greater confidence and better communication skills after arranging interviews with candidates and answering HR enquires through phone calls. Lastly, I understood the importance of teamwork because effective collaborations among team members can greatly increase the efficiency of task achievements and goal attainments. 

Bank of Singapore - Chan Hei Kan

HR operation in the real world is much the same as what we learned in class. What I gained from this internship is not limited to those technical skills but also soft skills. At school, you can choose your friends and group mates. You may not be required to work with your negative polar people if you want to. However, you need to work with people who have different work styles. To me, being a good team player is not just strength. It is an essential element in the business world. This internship allows me to contact colleagues from different departments, both front and back office, and work closely with the Singapore HR team. I master how to actively listen and understand the other’s point of view. Also, I absorb the ways of effective communication through the practices of my teammates.



Urban Renewal Authority - Joann Chan

My internship in URA offered me hands-on experience to reach clients, handle HR tasks independently, deepen my understanding on the company structure of a quasi-governmental profit-making statutory body, and give me opportunities to expand my horizons through working with other interns on assigned projects. The opportunity to present to Managing Director was precious and inspiring when I listened to other group’s presentation. Teammates and supervisor in URA are encouraging and helpful to inspire me through real-life situations. I have plenty of chances to utilize my vast working experience and creativity, as a young and new teammate.


Hong Kong Trade Development Council - So Lai Chun

The internship was an unforgettable opportunity to work in HKTDC. I learned more about HR operations like their company procedures and culture. Besides, I learned much more HR-related knowledge while working in an actual business situation. While writing policy guidelines for the HR department, I feel valued by my supervisor and boss as this policy will implement as a guideline for them to follow. Finally, I also uplift my software skills like word and excel. I always use this software in my daily work like mail merge or vlookup to enhance my work efficiency.


Urban Group - Gemma Tse

Through assisting with various tasks, I have learned and strengthened many new skills and knowledge.  Overall, I consider this internship as a perfect chance for me to get to know different parts of HR and figure out my future career path. On the other hand, this internship also allows me to expand my personal network and strengthen my interpersonal skills. Joining the internship course and working in the Urban group is a priceless and meaningful experience for me.

Ernst & Young (EY) as one of the big 4 professional accounting firms in the world, holds the mission of building a better working world. EY aims to provide the insights and quality services which help building trust and confidence in the capital markets and in economies the world over. I am in the CBS - Talent Team- Campus recruitment team, and worked under multiple recruiters in order to help them with campus recruitment process and events. After this internship, I have a deeper understanding on campus recruitment process. From how to screen organizational-fit candidates, the appropriate manner to answer the enquires from candidates, to the selection of the final candidates, I have a more comprehensive understanding on how a professional HR should be.

China Citic Bank International - Kwong Wing Nam Sophia

The nature of my internship is categorized as financial services. During my tenure in the program, I have been appointed to the Risk Management department and conduct different credit proposals.

I have also provided comprehensive training on credit processing flow and approval on the retail lending business in Hong Kong.

Most remarkably, this internship makes me know the structure and operation of a large corporation, which is an irreplaceable and meaningful learning experience for me.


Polar Air Cargo Worldwide – Ko Man Kin

Over the last seven months working at the firm, I’ve become skilled in using data visualization software (mainly, Tableau and PowerBI) and programming VBA code in Excel. I'm adept at areas such as report generation, logistic planning, and Excel automation. Now, I have a more thorough understanding of the cargo airline industry and its business model. Gaining experience in preparing reports and carrying out projects will be the cornerstone of my future career development.


New Zealand Trade and Enterprise – Ng Tsz Hei

Honestly speaking, this was the most valuable internship I had ever done. This was my first job related to retail and trade marketing.
