Foreseeing the challenges the graduating cohort will encounter during the current economic downturn, HKBU recently launched Project SEED to help students get better prepared for employment and unleash their career potential by engaging the support of BU community leaders. The online SEED Talk was one of the Project SEED initiatives. By engaging community leaders and inspirational professionals with rich knowledge from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, the Talk series aim to instill in both HKBU students and young alumni a positive attitude towards life, improve their competency in job-hunting, and provide them with a broad scope of outlook as they chart their path for a fulfilling and rewarding life.
