The SAAS Career Fair was successfully held on Thursday, March 16, 2017. The Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science organised this career fair specifically for BSc(ActuarSc), BSc (Majors in Decision Analytics, Risk Management, and Statistics), and MStat students, with an aim to connect the industry and students in an interactive environment outside offices or classrooms. We were extremely honoured to have 11 companies/organization with 48 representatives altogether participating in the career fair, some of whom also happen to be our alumni! They have given our students tremendous insights into the industry, allowing our students to have a better understanding of the opportunities they could grasp and be more prepared.
In addition, we were also extremely honoured to have invited Miss Jessica Ting to give our students a talk titled “What is Financial Risk Management & its career opportunities in banks?”, as part of the Career Fair. The talk was without doubt another student attraction.
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all the participating companies and persons, as well as voluntary student helpers, for their time and effort, and dedication to our students. Their support to our students has meant a great deal. With the enthusiastic response from the participants, we are certain that our students have gained much from the informative and inspiring interactions with the passionate representatives.
