Comments from Students
With the hard work of our teachers, we were lucky to get the chance to participate. In the in-depth communication with the HR from the commercial bank, I got a lot of information about industry dynamics, departmental functions and job recruitment information and we can see that the financial institutions are also very keen to recruit talents who can combine tradition with big data. The precious advice from the HR could be beneficial to our further development and sharpen our skills.
