During the MBA, a combination of resources were available through the career office which supported me in getting my current regional role at Apple. Apple was one of the companies we met during the Singapore Career Trek. It was a great opportunity to chat with people across different teams, to learn about their business and to experience the company culture first-hand. The career office later organized a recruitment event with Apple on campus in Hong Kong. I took that opportunity to connect deeper with a few managers and asked them detailed questions about the role and the business. I was able to demonstrate my strong interest, fit and enthusiasm for the position, and was given the opportunity to proceed with an interview on the spot.
