MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT The Hong Kong Polytechnic University was the first tertiary institution in Hong Kong to have incorporated a mandatory Work-Integrated Education (WIE) component into the undergraduate curriculum. This pioneering initiative was introduced in 2005 to enhance the all-round development and professional competence of our students facing an ever-changing and increasingly competitive business environment. Our University will mark its 80th Anniversary in 2017. Building on its proud legacy and steered by the vision to excel in partnership for the betterment of Hong Kong, the nation and the world, our students can now practise their WIE learning in 29 countries and 10 locations on the Chinese mainland. In 2015/16, 1,166 students benefited from this initiative in a wide array of industries and sectors. This booklet showcases not only their eventful experiences but also how the University fulfils its promise for education - “Opening Minds • Shaping the Future”. We are committed to equipping our students with professional skills and knowledge, as well as a broader and deeper understanding of the world, with a view to nurturing them to become competent talents who will contribute to the development of our society.

Timothy W. Tong, Ph.D. President The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

MESSAGE FROM THE INTERIM DEAN OF STUDENTS Over the past eight decades, PolyU has put emphasis on practical training and application-oriented education in order to meet the needs of society. We are proud to be the first university in Hong Kong to incorporate Work-Integrated Education (WIE) into a mandatory component of the curriculum, nurturing professional competence in all-round students. In the summer of 2016, an approximate of 1,200 students participated in various offshore WIE programmes. These WIE opportunities cover a wide range of industries, such as business sector, the Government, social welfare and educational organisations. I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the support from our industrial partners. PolyU will celebrate its 80th Anniversary in this year. To uphold the motto “To learn and to apply, for the benefit of mankind”, we are committed to offering valuable opportunities for students to experience a real-world working environment in Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and overseas. I hope you enjoy reading these students’ stories which play an essential role in the student life to enhance their employability and prepare themselves better for future challenges.

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF CAREERS AND PLACEMENT SERVICES Since its inception in 2012, the Office of Careers and Placement Services (CAPS) have provided over 4,500 offshore Work-Integrated Education (WIE) opportunities in diverse industries. Given the ever-changing employment landscape, students are expected to be adaptive to work environments soon after they graduate. Through WIE, students apply the knowledge they have acquired to the workplace with impacts and values to employers while CAPS have been providing extensive services to students to equip them to be work-ready. We offered over 1,000 sessions of career advising and mock interviews to students in 2015/16. Highlighting the essence of “impactful learning”, WIE has extended not only its geographical locations to 29 countries and 10 locations on the Chinese mainland but also sectional placements. Five sectors listed in this book have recorded a double-figure growth in the number of offshore placements while the sectors of “Marketing, Advertising, Design and Media” has skyrocketed with 220% growth in this year. The achievement of WIE is a collective effort. I am pleased to present this book which showcases our students’ accomplishments and positive feedback from employers. I look forward to the continuing support from you in the expansion of the WIE Programme.

Melina Lai (Ms) Director of Careers and Placement Services The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

ABOUT THE WORK-INTEGRATED EDUCATION Upholding the motto, “To learn and to apply, for the benefit of mankind”, PolyU puts emphasis on practical training and connecting classroom theory with workplace applications in order to meet the needs of society. All students in our undergraduate degree programmes are required to complete a mandatory Work-Integrated Education (WIE) component as a part of the curricular requirement since 2005. WIE is a work-based learning experience through internship that takes place in a real life work environment which is relevant to the student’s chosen profession. CAPS assist students in fulfilling WIE requirements through offering summer internship opportunities in Hong Kong, Mainland China and from around the world. To encourage students to take on a meaningful offshore WIE placement which may not be remunerated, students can apply for Offshore WIE Sponsorship to cover part of the costs incurred such as passage, accommodation, and travel insurance.

LIANG Tzu Yu BBA (Hons) Accountancy Canadia Bank

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Together with six other interns from different universities, I had a fruitful and valuable internship experience in Canadia Bank in Cambodia this summer. I was assigned as a Customer Service Officer at the main branch and at the Management Department. I provided quality customer and translation services to customers who speak Putonghua. At the Management Department, I drafted proposals and gave suggestions to increase the company’s productivity. At the same time, I wrote reports by analyzing data from different branches to the senior managers. My good performance on the final presentation brought me positive feedback from my colleagues. I learnt the Cambodian culture and to be more independent and confident after engaging in this internship programme. My friend and I (front row, first left)

MA Congying BBA (Hons) Accountancy Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Shanghai, China I was assigned to Settlement Department and Corporate Finance Department. At the Settlement Department, I drafted a reply to JP Morgan Hong Kong. During this process, I was given an opportunity to contact the leading multinational banks and got to know the procedure of international settlement. When I was in Corporate Finance Department, I assisted in handling the loan contracts with some companies and administrative staff. After accomplishing the duties, I think I have more knowledge of the procedure and document format for corporate loan in China. Before the internship, I thought auditing would be the perfect path for me. However, this internship experience told me that commercial banking is also a good choice.

My major duty was providing customer services at bank lobby and handling telephone enquiries. I am happy that my colleagues thought I was very responsible and careful when dealing with customers. In fact, I did not have much experience in handling complicated customer enquiries, so I needed to ask my colleagues for help and had to work harder than the others before starting a task. I met my supervisor on the first day and he comforted me a lot. Also, my colleagues used to encourage me and share their experiences with me.

I worked in Shanghai Headquarter of the People’s Bank of China, the central bank of China, which is located in Lujiazui Finance District. I worked as a counter helper for Foreign Debt Division. As I was not familiar with banking system, I was first assigned to assist in general office work. After getting known more about the bank, I was given more tasks to do, for example, making phone calls, replying to enquiries, and providing customer services. Also, I was a gatekeeper to monitor confidential information which required me to record some outdated materials. The things we have in books are usually theories; they are quite different when I experienced in the workplace. This experience helps me prepare for my future career.

My accomplishment was to apply my knowledge of macro programming to develop a programme which replaced manual verification work. Before having this proramme, the staff had to check data manually which was time consuming and had high error rate. Therefore, I decided to design a programme which could verify the data automatically. My friends and I (first right)

There was a clear intern plan for me when I came to the placement to serve as a marketing specialist. I was first briefed the diesel generating set, including principles of mechanics, sales processing, competitors, and market conditions. After that, I learnt ”The Incoterms® rules”, which is a set of three-letter trade term reflecting business-tobusiness practice in contracts for the sale of goods. Then, I learnt ICC Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (UCP 600). The rules are applied to the documentary credits when the credit shows that it is subject to these rules. I also did marketing research and data analysis to find out the potential customers and present to my supervisor. The experience at Tellhow helps me develop directions for my future career.

I helped in analysing the behaviors of MI travelers in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan and comparing the competitive force of tourism in certain countries to those MI travelers. It was so challenging to handle such a great amount of data. I also prepared tourism newsletter, publication and PowerPoint for AVIAREPS Business Event Proposal and Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) European representative. As there was no official deadline set for the tasks in AVIAREPS, I learnt to solve problems independently and ask questions at right time. Participated in a cocktail session

SI Wing Yan BA (Hons) Chinese and Bilingual Studies Wakasaimo Honpo Doya Lake Honten

Hokkaido, Japan

To summarise my 10 weeks of internship in one sentence, it will be “You never get a wider view of the culture you like unless you live in it�. I mainly worked at its ramen restaurant. This was my first time to work at catering industry. Besides providing courteous services to customers, I had to set tables, prepare ingredients, ensure sufficient clean utensils for the chef and all meals uplifted are accurate and in good condition. I did learn to be multi-tasking, especially during peak hours. I also worked at the souvenir shop by providing translation assistance for the foreign customers. My manager asked me to communicate with potential clients from Malaysia. I could demonstrate my knowledge gained from university and provide value to my employer. My

Had great fun in the Okinawa aquarium

Leonard KUNG BBA (Hons) Marketing Okinawa Kariyusi Beach Resort Ocean Spa Okinawa, Japan Okinawa Kariyusi Beach Resort Ocean Spa is at the North of Okinawa. It is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever visited. As one of the staff in the beach, I was responsible for guest reception, such as introducing the beach to visitors, handling payments and providing service to visitors. When there was enough staff in the beach, I would be the assistant in marine area. The atmosphere there was like a carnival. My job was to bring happiness to people. It was a beautiful experience for me. This internship had an impact on my future career planning. After the internship, my Japanese improved a lot! Also, I would consider working in a Japanese company in the future. My colleague and I (second right) 26 Work-Integrated Education 2015/16

CHAN Chong Tat BA (Hons) Chinese and Bilingual Studies Chaptel Hotel Hangzhou

Hangzhou, China

In this summer holiday, I applied the knowledge gained at school to make impacts on the company. It was my first time to work in a hotel. I was quite excited to be a short-term butler. I had to provide room and counter services, daily delivery and translation services. I usually worked from 11:30am to 8:00pm. I even had to serve customers alone if there was no other staff on duty.

It was good to be a butler

As the original version of some publicity materials was not good, I was assigned to revise the Chinese to English translation. I was appreciated by my supervisor for my passion and effort given at work. My version will be used thereafter. I become more confident after this internship.

Employers’ feedback Wakasaimo Honpo Doya Lake Honten Sylvia (SI Wing Yan) is a good team playe r in the restaurant.

YU Maichao BSc (Hons) Information Technology China Unicom

Shanghai, China

During the internship, I was lucky to join the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 on behalf of China Unicom; I helped with the logistic support in this international event. After the event, I helped the Director of Shanghai Unicom to analyse the trends of the latest mobile technology by doing desktop research. Also, I summarised the products of China Unicom displayed in MWC 2016 with a bilingual report for the senior management. After the internship, I discovered my interest and strengths. I enjoy planning and providing innovative solutions. At the same time, I realised the importance of being responsible to my work. I believe that every university student should pursue some internship experiences in order to explore themselves.

Nanjing, China

The first impression that the company gave me was large-sized, well-organised, and systematic. The core business of Nari covers a variety of fields, from software programmes to hardware. During the internship, I was arranged to work in the integrated workshop and electrical workshop and thus have a general understanding of the working processes of different kinds of products in Nari. Among all the work I was involved in, I was most proud of successfully repairing some malfunctions of feeder terminal units (FTUs) when debugging them. I tried to test a machine with a specially-designed bell, suddenly, two pins got sparked. To find out the problem, I dismantled the cover of the machine, looked into the inner part. Finally, I found out that two lines were connected in a wrong way. With this valuable experience, my problem solving skill was strengthened. This internship inspired me a lot to devote myself to this industry.

At the beginning, I had to do a research on the topic of OpenStack and how the docker can be enabled within the OpenStack environment. This topic was completely new to me. I now understand more about the OpenStack cloud operating system. The second task was translating the OpenStack user guide from Chinese to English. This was quite challenging as I was quite new to the Chinese language. The task enabled me to learn some Chinese technical terms and improve my Chinese proficiency. In the last few weeks I was given the task to study and implement materials on GitLab and Jenkins on Docker running on CentOS7. This internship has given me an opportunity to observe and learn from the way how a world leading technology company operates. I look forward to using the experience I obtained from this internship to improve and prepare myself for my further studies and career.

Having worked at the annual exhibition at Marina Bay Sands Expo in the first week, I knew the company better, met many guests, and built up relationships with my colleagues. Then, I was assigned to Department of Operations, Finance, Sales (Enterprise), Product Management, Presales and Global Service Management. With my marketing background, I assisted in conducting research to compare the products in the markets and preparing sales proposals.

I worked as a system tester. This internship supplements my knowledge with practical experiences. I developed a smart grid integrated network management system for the company, installed and tested the operating system (Linux) by the security monitor (SecureCRT). Also, I installed various databases (KingbaseES, Oracle database, MySQL database) and applied Toad to Oracle and MySQL. Eventually, the newly installed database would closely integrate the on-site manufacturing process with workflow. It can minimise error and enable the implementation of enterprises management cycle. The enhanced system, which I helped with, could check the status of manufacturing orders and generate production performance report timely and efficiently which lets the senior management get the whole picture of the production performance.

My job was to listen to and edit audiobook soundtracks and make sure that they were in good quality. I also designed icons for the audiobooks which would be displayed in the app; once those icons were clicked, the audiobooks would start playing. I was also responsible for retrieving anchor’s contact information on the internet so the company could contact them for helping out with voice-over. The CEO and her husband started up this company with an aim to provide quality education materials to children. Their belief drives me to spread the spirit of philanthropy in my future career.

I was assigned to handle a research on the topic of optimisation of shoes delivery and shoes packaging for the company. I gained much more than I expected. I did the project from the beginning on my own, including formulating a work schedule, selecting useful data, and familiarising myself with different departments and the front-line staff so that I could analyse the current problems for the company.

I visited Temple of Heaven (Tiantan)

I have successfully helped the company solve its logistics problems such as shoes packaging. My suggestion of having the products packed by net pockets instead of ropes was highly appreciated by my supervisor. He said that it was a creative idea which could improve the efficiency and save the operational cost. The front-line staff was also happy about the improvement since they thought the new packaging was more convenient and no harm to their hands. I even got the best project research award. I gained the Best Project Research Award

CHANG Dealon BBA (Hons) Global Supply Chain Management Kerry EAS Logistics

I was assigned to Integrated Logistics Department of Kerry EAS Logistics. My supervisor gave me and other two interns (from The University of Hong Kong and Harvard University) a special project. We had to produce an internal promotion video about staff motivation and pride to work in Kerry. The audience was the top management and general staff. We drafted scripts (10-15 minutes), arranged the details of the video, sought quotation, and contacted the production house for details. But, our supervisor requested us to revise the first proposal before 4pm after a meeting with him at around 11am. We could finally complete it before 3pm. (That was really challenging!) After that, we held several meetings with the production house for the filming process. I am grateful to my supervisor – Mr Zachary LI. I learnt to make decisions from the perspective of the company. I am so delighted that I could work here where gave me a fruitful summer and an unforgettable work experience.

After receiving new orders, I needed to record orders, verify payment, and pack and send the products to customers. I was also responsible for the promotion of the new Spring/ Summer items by organising photo shoot for those products. Also, I had to create a new season catalogue and other promotion materials for our website, social media platforms, and magazine advertisements. Moreover, as my company took part in two trade shows which were organised by the Australian Gift & Homewares Association (AGHA) and Frontline Australian Buying Event (FABE), I had chances to help design the company booth and do follow-ups to the venue set-up. The internship allows me to apply the photo editing skills that I learnt at school. I hope to develop my future career in this industry.

I have learnt from my supervisor how to respond to senior executives via different correspondences including email and Skype. Finally, I made a success with 20 tickets sold out. Since our company would like to invite guest speakers from prestigious institutions for the summit, I conducted a market research on top universities and international schools.

When I encountered challenges, I solved it by surfing the internet or checking books before I sought help from my supervisor. Hence I am quite proud that my research was on track. It was delivered on time and with quality. I was truly grateful for this internship opportunity.

In this two-month internship, I completed four tasks. Firstly, I promoted Medical and Aromatic Plants (MAP) EXPO which to be held in March 2017. I generated a guest list and prepared invitations to them. Secondly, I initiated a Member Visiting Programme with an aim to evaluate our services from members’ perspectives. I visited members’ companies on behalf of the Chamber and conducted interviews with CEOs. I analysed the information collected and prepared the report for my supervisor. Thirdly, I helped the Chairman to re-establish the connection with the associations in Hong Kong. Lastly, I coordinated a gathering for all Hong Kong interns working in the Netherlands. As I am majoring in English and minoring in Marketing, the Chairman complimented me on my handling of projects and having a sense of business. It is my great honor to receive his compliments.

LEE Wai Hung BSc (Hons) Hotel Management BBA (Hons) Accountancy HKSAR - Legislative Council Secretariat

Hong Kong

The internship is an ample opportunity to interact with members of different political parties. The experience was truly remarkable. During the six-week internhsip, I was attached to Research Office and Council Business Division. The preparation work of pre- and post- committee meeting documents have deepened my understanding on various local issues and policies. I participated in internal departmental meetings and observed committee meetings. They let me understand the professionalism of the Secretariat and the constitutional functions of the Council. The experience was meaningful and inspiring. It was not just about political matters but also attitude to life. Overall, the internship is far more than acquiring hands-on working experience. It has further increased my awareness of public affairs.

Hong Kong

I worked as a quantity surveying intern at West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA). My job was to monitor the cashflow forecast of different construction projects and the record of payment to Civil Engineering and Development Department. It is a unique experience because I could realise my dream to contribute to the construction industry. I have become prudent and precise in handling big construction projects. Besides, my communication skills have been improved through working closely with my colleagues who advised me a lot on my career planning and skills. The experience made me become more professional and brought positive impacts to my future career. My colleagues and I (front row, second right) 50 Work-Integrated Education 2015/16

Hong Kong

I experienced a lot at Tsuen Wan District Office under Home Affairs Department. I involved with an ad-hoc duty in arranging a one-day visit to Tsuen Wan by Mrs. Carrie Lam, GBM, GBS, JP, Chief Secretary for Administration. I had to make sure the visit was perfectly smooth. I also arranged meetings with different parties including Tsuen Wan District Council members, elderly, teenage group and some residents. I also supported the Tsuen Wan Youth Programme. I was responsible for designing publication materials, organising orientation and mentor-mentee meetings. I realise that as a civil servant, you have to balance the interests of different stakeholders. The mission of being an Administrative Officer impressed me most and I would consider AO as my future career.

Jinan, China

I participated in the WIE internship programme this summer and was assigned to work in Jinan TIME Group which is the biggest and a dominating stated-owned testing machine manufacturer in China. During the internship, I learnt to design a circuit for driving DC motor with using Proteus EDA. Besides, I had a deeper understanding of the Ether CAT industry field bus. The last part of learning was to manipulate welding robot in person. That was challenging, but at the same time, I enriched my knowledge with fundamental procedures in manufacturing robot and several robot solutions. This is a great chance for me to be an intern at TIME Group which definitely helps prepare me for my future career.

I am so proud of being a trainee in Knauf, which is a manufacturer of plasterboard. My colleagues took me to a visit at a factory in Debar called Knauf Radika. They showed me the production line in the factory from making plasterboards to shipping to other countries. I also had a chance to visit the gypsum mine underground and witnessed the process of mining and explosion. Working in Macedonia is challenging, but also eye-opening. As I communicated with my supervisors, colleagues, and other trainees in English, my communication skills improved a lot. During the internship, I attended different activities organised by IAESTE Macedonia like International Evening. Also, I had a chance to attend a traditional wedding in Galicnik and visit other cities.

I applied the accounting concepts and theories I learnt at school when I was doing account entries. Also, I made use of some marketing strategies when planning promotion schedule. What I learnt at university could really be applied in the workplace. My colleagues thought I was a capable helper in the office. Working in TDC Milan Office is really a wonderful and fruitful experience to me.

New York, US

As a Media Intern, I played a crucial role in this international, multi-cultural, and sporting event. To be in charge of the press tent which served as the only coordinating centre for the volunteers between the “waterside” and “landside”, I had to identify whom was given the permit to get onto the dragon boats and who the press was among a flood of people. To facilitate the workflow, I initiated a method to distinguish between volunteers and the press by providing labels to them. As a leader of the press tent, I realised the importance of communication between the organiser, the press, and all the stakeholders. Without communication, the event could not be so successful.
