DHL HR Professions inspire SDSC students to understand themselves better for career development
Does personality matter in your career development? Everyone has different personalities, and according to the characteristics and strengths, different people would find some jobs more suitable for them. Hence, choosing a right career path will not be difficult if you're already aware of your personality traits.
With the students’ positive feedbacks in the first talent development workshop (CV Writing and Interview Skills Workshop), the Department of Supply Chain and Information Management and the School of Decision Sciences co-organized another professional training workshop (Personality Test and My Career) with DHL again for SDSC students. It was successfully held online on 30 May 2022 and attracted over 30 SDSC students to join.
The guest speakers, Mr Anthony Wong (Vice-President of Human Resources in DHL Express Hong Kong & Macau), and Ms Nicole Lau (Senior Human Resources Manager), provided career development guidelines for our students who completed the personality test before the workshop. The workshop included interaction with interesting videos, examples and self-discovery via a personality test review for students on linking their personality traits to their career selection and development.
Through a series of demonstrations, explanations and interactions, students got well prepared for their career plan and gained better understanding of how to work with people with different personalities. In addition, the speakers provided analyses on how their personality traits manifest in their work preferences. This enhanced students’ self-awareness on their strengths and weakness, such that our students would become more professional and happier in the workplace. Positive feedbacks were received from our students after the workshop.
