【How to Enable Yourself to Stand Out in Interviews】
As our 2023 International Mentorship Program (IMP) catalyzing collaboration between corporates and students unfolds, here's a quick snapshot of our second workshop themed "How to Enable Yourself to Stand Out in Interviews." Over 140 students and teachers from 25 countries attended this event. Three renowned representatives from enterprises and chambers of commerce provided an overview of their organizations and shared their career development stories entailing opportunities and challenges.
Our guests expressed the importance of highlighting a candidate's selling points with a deep understanding of their strengths and to whom they are presented. Students also learned that "value" is a critical component to be discussed in an interview, making the interviewer feel that you care about your and the company's future.
