“CAREER WITH GERMAN”

At the beginning of the new year 2019, the Goethe-Institut and the German Alumni Association Hong Kong are launching a new event series – the German-Hong Kong Alumni Talk. Four times a year we will invite Hong Kong alumni, i.e. former scholarship holders from the German Academic Exchange Services DAAD, the Goethe-Institut, or other German foundations or funding institutions and German learners as well as general public who are interested in Germany, to an expert discussion on current social-political, economic, cultural or education topics at the Goethe-Library. For each discussion there will be a Hong Kong-based German expert and a German-speaking Hong-Konger.

The first expert discussion, titled “Career with German”, will take place on 5th March from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM with support from the German Chambers of Commerce Abroad in Hong Kong. Wolfgang Ehmann, the general executive of the German Chambers of Commerce in Hong Kong, will give an overview on the current situation of the Hong Kong job market and the local presence of large companies from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Together with another guest, Kaikang LE, the general executive of Beurer Far East Ltd, they will discuss career chances in Hong Kong at German/Austrian/Swiss companies for graduates as well as at job opportunities in Germany. Other relevant topics will also be addressed, such as what additional qualifications could boost a career and what difficulties Hong Kongers face when searching for jobs in Germany. 
 
Our moderator is Timothy Wong, a graduate of the HKU’s German Program and is now working in the German Consulate General Hong Kong, responsible of the press and public relations.
 
There will be a Q&A session at the end of the talk. German snacks and beverages will also be provided.
