CFAA Welcomes Consul General Mr. HONG Lei

Program Description:

– Have you been nervous about how to connect with recruiters at recruiting events? No idea how to tell your story or get the information you want?

– After retrieve contact information from a recruiter/business professional you want to connect with, have you ever wonder how to follow up with them?

– When you finally get an interview, have you ever wonder what kind of communication skills you need to ace the interview?

– After interviews, have you ever thought about how to follow up with your potential employer? How to properly ask questions while you are waiting for the final decision?

Most of us have encountered these challenges during job searching, and we realize that communication has always been one of the most difficult parts in this process. For every question you may have during your job searching, we hope that we could help you to find a proper answer. Chinese Finance Association of America (CFAA) invites you to explore these topics together with a panel of outstanding and experienced professionals from various industries in a highly interactive panel discussion. We encourage you to share your stories and questions with us in advance through our social media message boxes, CFAA email or at the event.
