Why does Internship Matter?

The importance of internships just simply cannot be ignored or taken lightly. In today’s highly competitive job market, good jobs are high sought after and only candidates who manage to stand head and shoulders above the rest will be chosen. That said, attending a good university well-connected with local and global corporations is the first step to pave your career path. While pursuing your study at HKUST, you MUST NOT OVERLOOK the importance of an internship because it empowers you to get ready with an impressive CV, hone your soft skills required in the workplace, build professional network, chart your career path and help you land a graduate offer.

  • Type of Internships

    Internships can be paid or unpaid and may take various forms:
    - part-time during the term;
    - full-time during the term (you have to apply for study leave in such situation); and
