Cheng Yu Tung College (CYTC) aims to nurture students not only in College life learning, but also provides opportunities on internship program during summer recess. CYTC collaborates with Chow Tai Fook Jewelry Group Limited (CTF), the company under CYTC’s donor, to conduct an internship program for CYTC students since 2015. This year was the 4th year and the internship program last for 6 weeks. The numbers of interns increased from 8 to 9. Our residents Lin Baining, Wong U Lam, Zhang Yi, Xu Jieling, Wang Ziqi, Cai Ruhan, Li Chufang, Ye Zhaoyi and Lei Wengsan were interviewed and successfully selected by CYTC academics and HR colleagues from CTF. The internship period was from May 21 to June 30, 2018.

To carry out this internship program effectively and have a better communication between CYTC and CTF, College Interim Master Dr. Lee and the 9 interns visited the headquarter of CTF in Shen Zhen and jewelry factory in Shun De on May 20 to 22. Then 9 interns were assigned to different Project Management Teams. After 6 weeks of internship, they were trained well and almost like a regular staff of CTF. College Fellow Diane Lu and Tang Yu Ming went to the conclusion report meeting with CTF supervisors, listening to the reports and reflection from CYTC interns on June 27. Our students gave a thorough project report and they said they learnt how to be attentive on every detail, how to communicate with internal divisions and external working partners, and how to facilitate a morning sharing, etc. We were grateful that CEO and other functional heads came to the meeting too. The CEO of CTF Mr. Wong Siu-Kee highly praised and appreciated the hardworking attitude and the creativity that CYTC interns had. Mr. Wong also commented on their work and gave them some useful suggestions for life.

CYTC thanked CTF about the internship arrangement and their warm care of CYTC interns, being like brothers and sisters to them. The internship program became more thorough and mature than before. We definitely look forward to the internship program next year.
