2013 SEM Student Career Trip in Guangzhou
July 11, 2013
CDC reached the employers in Guangzhou that recruit SEM students in the past years and set up a career trip with six top companies at the beginning of July, 2013. Over the week from July 1st to 5th, nearly 30 SEM students including undergraduate, master, and MBA visited P&G, CGB, GF Securities, Pearl River Investment, Dongfeng-Nissan, and Guangzhou Pharmaceutical Holdings Limited. It helped the students deepen the understandings of business and career in FMCG, real estate, banking, securities, pharmacy, and automobile. More importantly the field study enhanced the communications between the students and the prospective employers outside Beijing, which makes the SEM graduates’ career locations more diversified.
During the visits, the companies’ leadership and SEM alumni talked to the students about their business, career growth, and working environments which the students should consider in job hunting. It also built the images of those companies while they present their advantages in market and developmental strategies. The companies wish to have more such events to meet the students so that they can talk to the prospective employees directly.
One of the students comments, “This 5-day career trip is helpful for us to broaden our vision and clarify our career goals. In addition, it let the students dialogue and reflect with each other which enhances our friendship. We do wish CDC will arrange more such field trips”.
By far CDC has arranged such career trips in Shenzhen, Shanghai and Guangzhou in the past three years. CDC will continue to work with the employers to build more such events that help companies and SEM students know each other.
