Despite recent market turmoil, SpringBoard TM has continued to fill front office roles for our success stories and share front office career information with you and other members of the SpringBoard community. This time round, we have specially organized a Career Networking Workshop to share and discuss how you can shine in the finance industry with your personality.

Led by Mr Tolmas Wong, Director, Private Clients Services at CIMB Securities, the workshop will discuss the challenges of different roles in the finance industry, and give you insight on which roles your personality may be more suited for.

After the workshop, you are invited to mingle with our guests who are experienced professionals in the industry. This offers you the opportunity to get up close and learn from a potential future colleague or supervisor.

You will learn more about how you can shine in the finance industry – regardless of whether you are in the front, middle or back office. You will know more about how the finance industry works, in particular the interactions across the front, middle and back offices and how you may find your best job fit within.

You will also get to mingle with guests from the finance industry and gain an insight into the work and life of finance industry professionals.
