He used data to show current economic development and market forecast on global talent demand and supply.

She shared her insights on how to get prepared in such a competitive and volatile era and encouraged students to develop themselves gradually. She suggested that when facing uncertainties in the macro-environment, students should not focus on things that they couldn’t control but on the capabilities that they should/could build.

Based on her own career journey and management experience, Frances shared her insights on the key characteristics, skills, and qualities a successful HR consultant usually presents. She recommended students to participate in corporate internships,extracurricular activities as much as possible to gain knowledge.

Second is how to analyze information by looking into a company’s continuous performance as well its value and management philosophy.
