About Us

The 21st century knowledge-based economy requires employees who are lifelong learners, capable of planning their lives and careers with confidence and intention as well as responding and adapting to change. We believe the key to success in the modern workplace is not just about finding the right job, but becoming the right worker, friend or life partner. The definition of career has shifted from a pathway to finding an ideal occupation to the inclusion of the sequence and variety of work roles, paid and unpaid, as well as life roles, leisure activities and learning throughout a lifetime.

The Career Center at HKUST is dedicated to helping you explore, plan and prepare for your career. Whether you would like to find out your career interests, plan for further studies, understand the trends and prospects of your favorite industries, develop your career competencies, obtain up-to-date job information for internships, part-time or graduate employment, get prepared for the competitive job search process or need advice on making tough career decision, we are here to provide you with resources, services, programs and assistance along the way.

We strongly encourage every student to make good use of our resources and services at different stages of your university education. Do visit our website regularly and join our programs.

At the same time, we are committed to building strong partnership with prospective employers for talent development and recruitment. If your company is interested in hiring from HKUST or exploring possible collaboration with us, please feel free to contact us.
