CareER’s First Student Starts Internship

Monday 18th November

CareER (Care in Education and Recruitment) (a support network for higher education students/graduates with disabilities which Louisa co-founded) has facilitated its first internship for hearing-impaired graduate member, Mavis So. Leading Hong Kong law firm King & Wood Mallesons has offered Mavis a four-month, part-time, paid internship with the Human Resources Department.

Click into CareER (Care in Education and Recruitment) to see Mavis’s experience in her first few days at work. A recent graduate from City University of Hong Kong, Mavis had been struggling to find employment. This internship gives her office experience, enables her to earn a wage, hopefully boosts her confidence and at the same time allows her enough time to continue looking for a permanent step onto her career ladder of choice. Feedback from the company is positive so far, with Mavis  exceeding expectations in terms of productivity and adaptability.

Get in touch if your company can offer an internship for a student/graduate with a disability who may be finding it difficult to gain employment in Hong Kong.
