The Cambridge University alumni community in Hong Kong has grown to a considerable size. In order to consolidate our resources, build a strong community network and to continue the process of enlightening each other, we propose to create a mentorship program that will connect experienced alumni with the undergraduates and recent graduates of Cambridge University. Through a series of activities from drinks, dinners to a grand annual event, people can share their experience, advice with one another. Many local Hong Kong universities have similar programs that are welcome by the students and alumni alike. It is our belief that our Cambridge alumni community can greatly benefit from such scheme.

Cambridge mentorship program summer 2009 Part 1
We had our 1st session of the mentorship program on Sat 11 July, the topic was CV and interview workshop. I spoke along side with Stan, Herbert, Karen and Becky. Herbert had kindly prepared a structured discussion framework to share with the attendants (students and young alumni alike), we all chip in on our stories and advice. The response was great and we over-ran for by 1.5 hrs. So glad that we have found the right format since last year to host such event, both the attendants and speakers told me that they enjoyed and learned a lot :-)
1 down 3 to go.
