As the Greater Bay Area (GBA) initiative develops it offers an increasing range of career opportunities for Hong Kong's recent graduates.
To help the city's younger generation understand the labour market and career paths available, the Chamber organized a webinar on "GBA Career Prospects and Important Tips for Youth" on 1 June. Three speakers – Catherine Tsang, Partner, China Tax and Business Advisory Services at PwC China; Betty Lam, Head of Human Resources, Hong Kong at HSBC; and Shawn Chen, Director of Strategy, Coordination & Execution at UMP Healthcare Holdings Ltd – shared their insights and personal experience of working in the Mainland GBA cities with an online audience of students.
Besides explaining some of the cultural differences between workplaces in the Mainland and Hong Kong, the speakers advised students to improve their communication skills. This would help them adapt to the living and working environment across the border, and also prepare them for the move out of education and into the world of work.
