The QFIN Program offers individual and group career coaching, training and advice. A number of career training workshops covering all aspects of the job hunting process will be held in the first semester and early in the second semester. These will equip students with a complete set of skills and techniques, from identification of leads, to CV writing, interviewing and job hunting strategies. There will also be practical coaching and drilling such as mock interviews, sharing sessions with the alumni and industry professionals, mentorship and buddy programs and so on.
Students are strongly encouraged to take part in these career activities early on in their studies to gain a clear picture and good understanding of the expectations and challenges of finding a job or an internship.
Through the internship program, participating companies provide full-time on-the-job training to students through their normal operating activities. Participating students may take leaves of absence for one or more semesters to enroll in this program. Internships provide valuable opportunities for students to gain exposure to the professional environment over and above that offered through class and related activities. Internships can take place in Hong Kong or overseas, greatly enhancing the quality of education provided by CUHK and improving students’ competitiveness in the job market.

The QFIN Program has established a strong network with the industry both locally and internationally. The positive experience of taking on QFIN interns has made companies more willing to make return offers to our students upon graduation.
