Amazing India

AIESEC provides international internship opportunities for its members. Most of them do it during the summer or winter break, some of them even take a gap year to make it. The USA, Europe seems to be a popular choice when you come to the place for internship. But have you ever thought of doing your internship in India? Jackson Chan (year 2 Phy Comp) went to India, Jaipur for an internship last year. When I ask about how is India, he just smiled and said, " India is amazing! Nothing is impossible there!"

It is the free meal provided by the company.But the taste is...

Then amazing things happened. I saw the driver took out a 'napkin' and climbed out from his seat moments!!

On the AIESEC Joint-U Induction, we have met new AIESECers from other universities. We understand how AIESEC operates by analyzing the case of a global corporation, IKEA. Five major groups of the structure are found: Incoming group, Outgoing group, External Relations, Human Resource management (Talent Management) and Information Management and Finance Group. Hence, AIESEC follows the path of the global corporation and keeps on running and even expanding to other countries. ALL OF US ENJOY THE HAPPY MOMENT OF INDUCTION DAY!

Hey AIESEC! The AIESEC Touch 2010 attracted many potential members! To let students in BUHK know more about our core work and core values, we introduced AIESECÕs structure, vision and International Internship Programme through dancing, playing games and sharing.

ItÕll be a great way to meet the members and pass on your wisdom!

Once AIESECer, always AIESECer!

Workshop With

ricky & Mark

On 27th, November 2010, we are very excited to have a workshop prepared by our almuni: Ricky and Mark on HOW to prepare ourselves for future-when people and opportunities meet. Ricky and Mark were our Vice President and Marketing Officer in AIESEC in HKBU during 1990-91 respectively. They are now the general managers of two international companies. AIESEC is a platform for us to equip ourselves. They shared with us their past experiences in AIESEC and how these valuable experiences contribute to their career aspiration. They taught us how to “start with an end” and the concept of “P.I.E.” (Performance, Image, Exposure). During the panel discussion, our members raised questions and exchange ideas with Ricky and Mark. We did learn a lot from these valuable experiences which is extremely useful for us in the future interviews, meetings, and networking events. Mark (right) is the Associate Director at Procter & Gamble China Ricky (left) is the General Manager at TSL Jewellery, Hong Kong and Macau Retail

Our members Kelly and Maggie were very interested on them and asked them some questions after the workshop, Let's have a look.

Q: What is your most impressive experience in AIESEC? Ricky: Well, I was a freshman when I joined AIESEC. I participated a training camp held by AIESEC South Korea, delegates from all over Asia Pacific joined the camp, they were mainly from Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, South Korea and of course Hong Kong.We had on-site visits of some local corporations, We knew more about the model and structure of those companies. Q: How did AIESEC help you to equip yourself ? Mark: Thanks to the internationalism of AIESEC, I’ll be less fear to work in the future. AIESEC holds an array of international conferences and activities every year. In addition, it invites reputable people to give talks and shares their keys to success. Students from all over the globe get a chance to gather together. By joining the activities held by AIESEC at the University, I was able to meet with people of different nationalities, thereby widening my horizons. This experience of internationalism was my stepping stone to work efficiently with partners from varied cultural backgrounds in society. Moreover, it's professionalism allowed me to equip myself with skills at holding events and leading members in the University.

Q: General ly, AIESEC er s in Hon defer their g Kong is study for a not willing one-year ov you think? to erseas intern ship.

——AIESECers from the world working in Hong Kong

This year, we have quite a lot of AIESECers from the world working in Hong Kong as management trainees for the AIESEC internships. Five of them even work for our school, the business school of the Hong Kong Baptist University! (I bet students who take the course 'Business Communication' should see them a lot!) Because they are working at our school, our members have a lot of chances to chat, hang out and interact with them. We become really good friends no matter where we come from! They are leaving soon, Let's see what they want to say!
