First years, did you know that the Career Center has a program exclusively for you called Fyrst Contact? Well, we do, and it is an amazing program. This program connects first-year students with companies and employers who are interested in engaging with first years. Fyrst Contact is offered online and it is more of an information session versus a recruitment session. Some of the companies who participate are looking for interns and will provide that information during the session. You can view and register for these sessions through CareerConnections.

As one of the most glamorous and exotic destinations in Asia, Hong Kong is a special administrative region located on the southern coast of the People Republic of China. The name Hong Kong translates into “fragrant harbor” traditionally due to the natural sweet water and the incense factories that would lie on the banks.

Occupied by the British and Japanese for a long time, it officially became independent in 1997 and is nowadays considered one of the most important financial centers and expensive cities with a GDP of 412 billion dollars. Hong Kong is also one of the most densely populated places on the planet with a characteristic architecture featuring Cantonese and colonial traditions.
