At HKTDC, you don’t expect to be taught on what you are supposed to do. It is a place that you’ll experience hands on in different roles and keep on trying until you learn what is the right thing to do to promote Hong Kong globally. International exposure, rotational training and tremendous job satisfaction aside, TDC is something more and it is a career for life.

I am so grateful of the fruitful experience provided through tremendous opportunities to work on various international trade promotional events as well as exposure in overseas posting. It is challenging but sure a great journey which does not only groom the executive trainees in all aspects, and also equips us with skills for promoting Hong Kong globally.

The ET Programme offers exceptional international exposure. You will have the opportunities to work with colleagues, partners and customers worldwide, right from the first day and throughout your HKTDC career. I myself travelled to overseas markets such as India and Kazakhstan to promote Hong Kong, within less than a year after completing my 3-year posting in Japan. In view of the diversified market and job nature, trainees are expected to learn fast so as to deliver results quickly. It is through this rigorous and rewarding journey that turns trainees into competent executives with a global vision and exposure.

In HKTDC, you will enjoy rich learning experience and understand about diverse industries in Hong Kong. During the three-year programme, we were given full support, resources and help to achieve more. From promoting Hong Kong's strengths, organising overseas roadshows, to taking up new and challenging projects, every task made me know and grow my potentials. Yet, it is just the beginning of my exciting journey.
