Career Preparation Programmes

The SDO will arrange the following workshops for students to better prepare them for their job hunt, for example:

 

  • Resume and LinkedIn Profile Writing
    • A Resume is a record of your skills, experience and achievements to show to employers in the first stage of the job-hunting process. In the workshop, you will learn how to develop a targeted resume for specific positions and organisations and build the foundational sections of an effective resume. The workshop will also cover how to create a successful LinkedIn Profile that will facilitate your online job search.

About Employment and Internship for Non-local Students  

  • Non-local students (excluding exchange students) of full-time, locally-accredited local programmes at degree level or above, whose study period is not less than 1 academic year, may take up part-time on-campus employment for not more than 20 hours per week throughout the year, and off-campus summer jobs during the summer months (1 June to 31 August) without any limit on the hours worked and the working locations. Students, however, are not allowed to rollover unused hours of part-time on-campus jobs from 1 week to another. 
     
  • Students are also allowed to take up study / curriculum-related internship / placement arranged and endorsed by the Institute. The duration of such study / curriculum-related internship / placement is up to 1 academic year, or one-third of the normal duration of the full-time study programme, whichever is shorter. 
     
  • A “No Objection Letter” (NOL) will be issued to eligible non-local students upon approval of entry applications. These students are in general not required to make separate applications in respect of part-time on-campus employment and summer jobs. The NOL for taking up part-time on-campus employment and summer jobs will remain valid throughout the currency of the student’s limit of stay at the same institution for studying the same approved programme. However, the NOL for taking up study / curriculum-related internship will normally be valid for 1 academic year and while the student still remains studying the same programme in the same institution in Hong Kong. In case of need, the student is required to apply for a new NOL for taking up internship in the subsequent academic years through the Institute. If students transfer to another study programme or switch to another institution, the student’s eligibility for study / curriculum-related internship, part-time on-campus employment and summer employment will be assessed afresh. A new NOL, if applicable, will be issued. In case of loss, damage or defacement of the NOL, students may request the Immigration Department for the issue of a new NOL and notify the Institute.
     
  • All non-local students admitted to take up studies in the HKSAR are subject to conditions of stay stipulated by the Immigration Department. They shall study only at the specified school, university or other education institution and undertake the courses of study as may be approved by the Director of immigration. They shall not take up any employment, whether paid or unpaid, or establish or join in any business.
