Horror Stories from a Former Campus Recruiter
Why do professionals you ask for name cards from never seem to have any to give you? How hungry or full should you go to a networking event? Mr. Glenn Loh, a former campus recruiter and program director for graduate programs, has seen many cases of what NOT to do, hiring many junior talent into organisations like UBS. During this session, Mr. Loh will share real stories of deal-breaking and deal-making moments he has witnessed in the job application process, from resume screening, phone interviews, online tests, as well as a typical group interview or assessment centre. A human resource professional with combined 20 years of experience in financial, automotive and publishing industries, Mr. Loh now serves as Executive Director at The Hunting Ridge Group. Students of all years are welcome, especially if you are interested in applying for competitive management trainee, management associate, or graduate development programs. Dinner will be provided. Please register in Symplicity.

Writing for the Workplace
Communicating in the workplace can be very different from doing so in an educational environment. Many fresh graduates often find their well-honed ability to write prose is less suitable in a setting that demands concise, bottom-line messages delivered crisply on-the-spot. In this workshop, students will learn how to apply the Minto Pyramid Principle to adjust smoothly to working-environment demands. Students who will be writing business reports, executive summaries, emails, and backgrounders for client projects, internships, or future jobs are encouraged to attend. Please RSVP on Symplicity.
