How to be Tougher in these Tough Times

Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/Scholars.SpringBoard

Markets have continued its sluggish trend lately. Since the beginning of this year, we have seen many foreign sell-side houses closing or scaling down in Hong Kong – the key Asian market for international investors. Singapore is similarly shaken by the turmoil. Week after week, we can hear whispers of firm closures.

During this challenging period, senior people are applying for more junior positions, which makes entering the industry ever more challenging for fresh graduates and career switchers.

However, amid this storm, Scholars’ Village continues to offer a silver lining for those tough men and women who are determined to ride the storm. More recently, we have updated our Facebook page with a few WoW notes on how to stay in good shape for any window of opportunity that may open for you.

On May 22, we will hold an exclusive sharing session with finance professionals on “How to be Tougher in these Tough Times?” – what you need to do NOW to prepare for that job interview or informal chat.

At this exclusive sharing session, Scholars’ Springboard will also be announcing a couple of potential internship opportunities, where priority is given to those present at our event.

Seats are first come first served, and limited. Please register by 17 May. Details below.
