The COVID-19 crisis has caused an unprecedented disruption to our lives, especially for our graduating class of 2020. The crisis has deprived them of invaluable opportunities to learn and experiment in the classroom, broaden their horizons through global exchanges, and engage in meaningful interaction with their peers. Many of them are troubled over their career prospects after graduation.
We ask your help now to get through this difficult time together as an HKUST community. Our alumni are exemplary leaders who have weathered all sorts of crises, from SARS to the dot-com bubble burst to numerous financial crises. We thus appeal to you to help our newest cohort navigate through this latest challenge by joining HKUST UNITED, an initiative to connect current students and fresh graduates with alumni from diverse fields of expertise who can support their career development. We are looking for alumni to offer:
- Career advice
- Internship / job opportunities
- Startup support
Please let us know if you can help with any of the above by filling in our online registration form or simply by replying to this email with "YES, I’d like to help" and our staff will be in touch with you to follow up. We understand that jobs / internships may not be available right now, but we would appreciate if you could still give us a show of support by filling out the registration form and selecting the option to let us know once your company begins hiring again. Please also help spread the word to your friends and let us know if anyone you know would like to hire HKUST talents. For any program inquiries, please contact us at email@example.com.
HKUST is an extraordinary community of alumni, students, faculty, and staff, and together we will overcome these challenges and bring HKUST to even greater heights. Thank you for your support.
