With 5 years of experience in the financial sector prior to joining HKUST MBA, I was looking to explore and move into other industries or functions. The workshops and consultations hosted by the Careers Team helped a lot as they provided me with the knowledge and framework I needed to explore my options. Joining the Human Resources Management Associate Program at Citibank has been the perfect choice because it involves working with people across teams and seniorities which is one of my passions. There is a strategic element to it as talent is by far the most important resource that any organization has. Working for an international and diverse company such as Citi has provided me with opportunities to work across different geographies and functions within HR.
