The WEC team not only provides training courses and 1-on-1 career consultations, but also invites corporate partners and industry experts to present job opportunities and share their career insights with students. By keeping students up-to-date and engaged with the rapidly changing job market, support students to become more resilient and adaptable when transitioning from academic learning on campus to roles in competitive industry fields.

We take students on company visits and field trips to familiarise them with the work environment, day to day operations and organizational structures of companies across a range of industries. This is also a great opportunity for employers to gain exposure, build deeper connections with potential recruits and attract future talent.
