Career Services at HKUST was extremely valuable. It helped me choose between several job opportunities. Many of the pros and cons of the jobs seemed to balance each other out. Making a decision was not easy. The coaching provided at career-related workshops helped to clarify my thinking. It also taught me strategies for pursuing professional development that will be of great benefit for the future.
