Speed Networking Event with Chinese Employers

Posted on: 4 October 2017 in Careers

We recently ran a speed networking event for students at our London Campus, providing them with an opportunity to hear from and network with employers who are specifically interested in recruiting students for their China office.

Employers included KPMG, Nu Skin, Hays Recruitment, E-Global and Wind Financial Information.

Over 90 students attended from the Liverpool and London campuses. The day consisted of an employer panel where they shared about their graduate opportunities and tips on the recruitment process. This was followed by a time of speed networking.

Student Lan Tian said: "The speed networking was a great opportunity to meet employers face to face and ask questions. In the past I was very nervous talking to the employers but talking to them in small groups made me feel more comfortable and I went away feeling more knowledgeable about what employers are looking for."

Kathy Chen from Nu Skin said: "This event has been very different to previous University events we have attended. The speed networking was innovative and provided students with a non-conventional way to engage with us and ask questions. It was also a beautiful setting."

Maria Forrest, Overseas Graduate Recruitment from KPMG China said: "The ‘Speed Networking’ event for careers in China was superb! A great way to meet lots of top students and answer their questions in small groups. I am confident that it will bring about many applications and I would definitely attend this event again."
