To create an opportunity for students to make better and informed choices for their future careers, our Careers and Further Studies Team organised a career expo on 23 March. With the unyielding support from Zonta Club of the New Territories, our students were engaged in a person-to-person dialogue with experienced professionals from various fields: architecture, environmental consultant, innovation and digitalization, nursing and therapy, public affairs and corporate communications, to name but a few. Followed by the keynote speech at the hall, there were 20 venues opened for students to meet the guest speakers in person.
Ms Nancy Chan, alumna of SHCC, gave a keynote speech on vision and core values of life-planning. In her message, Ms Chan reminded the audience that journey in life isn’t always smooth but with challenges, hardship, love and heartaches. She believed that Christian values can help overcome challenges. These founding principles aside, sound education background, international exposures, overseas work experience, language capabilities, and soft skills, play an integral part in one’s development. She recommended that students get involved in short-term summer jobs, volunteering work in NGOs to nurture one’s empathy. She also suggested keeping abreast with technological developments and digitalization.
But for the support of Zonta Club of the New Territories, we would not have been able to have more than 20 guest speakers to share with our S4-5 and voluntary S3 participants. Special thanks go to Mrs Beatrice Wen and everyone who worked behind-the-scene on the Saturday.
