Overview

This company visit and career workshop is an exciting initiative that aims to equip civil engineering students with the skills and knowledge for successful job hunting and to bridge the gap between aspiring civil engineers and industry professionals. Two essential components of job hunting, CV writing and interview skills, will be covered in the workshop. Attendees will be able to learn the tips of writing their CV in a precise and concise manner, techniques in preparing cover letters as well as interview skills for civil engineering jobs.

Through engaging presentations, discussions on industry trends, and interactive sessions with experienced engineers, students will gain practical insights into daily operations, project management, innovative technologies, and sustainability practices. This event could inspire university students with a firsthand understanding of how a reputable civil engineering firm operates.
