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 3rd year and the internship program last for 6 weeks. The numbers of interns increased from 4 to 8. Our residents Cao Ying, Huang Qihua, Zhou Jiahang, Yang Zihan, Li Hanwen, Wu Xuming, Qian Zixin and Ma Beiping were interviewed and successfully selected by CYTC academics and HR colleagues from CTF. The internship period was from May 22 to June 30, 2017.
To carry out this internship program effectively and have a better communication between CYTC and CTF, the Resident Fellow Ms. Diane Lu and the 8 interns visited the headquarter of CTF in ShenZhen on May 22. 8 interns were assigned to the Human Resource and different Project Management Teams. After 6 weeks of internship, they were trained well and almost like a regular staff of CTF. College Master, Prof. Chung Ling and Fellow Diane Lu went to the conclusion report meeting with CTF personnel, listening to the reports and reflection from CYTC interns on June 30. 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. The Deputy General Manager of CTF Executive Office Rainbow Yuan highly praised and appreciated the hardworking attitude and the creativity that CYTC interns had. All the division heads also had comments on their work and gave them some useful suggestions for life.
Master Chung 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 last two years. We definitely look forward to the internship program next year.
