ii. Career-related Experience
“I feel grateful for taking part in this programme. I am thankful for grasping this opportunity, and I benefitted much from it.
First, I’ve learned more about myself, such as my MBTI personality traits, my ideal job, and so on. These allowed me to get to know myself better and use them as a resource when looking for subjects to study at university and jobs that match my interests and personality.
Also, I have learnt about the basic information of various industries, such as the entry requirements, the usual work routine, the industry’s current status and situation etc. It enabled me to learn more about various jobs and reconsider which industry I want to enter in the future.
Socially, because the scheme included students from various schools, I could meet new peers with similar interests and preferences, therefore expanding my social circle.
To me, frankly, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I will never forget the joyful moments we spent together during the program.” – Participant from MS2T
I have always thought about a career in the aviation industry and I am thankful to the school for giving me another chance to visit the HKIA. Although I already knew most of the things we learnt today, the visit to the airside was definitely still exciting and inspiring. I hope the school can arrange trips like this more frequently in the future.
I really enjoyed this visit because it gave me a new perspective about the aviation industry. I didn’t realise that there are so many job opportunities provided in the industry, and it certainly gave me a deep insight into the industry, especially the procedures involved in the taking off of planes. It made me feel very interested in the industry and I will consider working in the industry in the future.
I have known more about the airport as well as the different kinds of job related to it. One of my dream jobs is to work in the airport but actually I didn’t really know what I would have to do if I worked in the airport. But from today’s visit I have learnt more types of work that I didn’t know before and more details about airplanes.
I think this was a wonderful experience because I could see how the entire aviation industry works, which I am very interested in. It was great to find out about the side of the airport normally unknown to the public. The guide on this tour was very nice and informative. Overall I like this visit a lot and I hope school provides more events like this.
This was a memorables experience. I learned about different subjects and knowledge today, for example surveying and different kinds of design. I hope that there will be more chances to visit different schools and learn more about them.
Even though the disciplines that I visited weren’t the ones I am really interested in, I still managed to reflect on my possible career options. I am quite happy with the visit overall.
