Cathay Pacific holds Career Expo for Hong Kong students
16 Jun 2001
Cathay Pacific Airways today held a career day for 900 Hong Kong graduates at its global headquarters Cathay Pacific City at Hong Kong International Airport. The Cathay Pacific Career Expo showcased the many different career opportunities available for students including pilots, cabin crew, management trainees, customer services officers and engineer trainees.
The participating students were from Form 5 or above. At the Career Expo they were first given a presentation introducing Cathay Pacific, followed by a tour of the company’s headquarters complex. The students were then invited to learn more about the various jobs in Cathay Pacific through an exhibition held in Cathay Pacific City's internal street. The various booths were manned by current jobholders who shared their work experiences with the students.
Cathay Pacific's Director Personnel William Chau said: "As Hong Kong's home carrier, we are delighted to be able to provide rewarding careers for many Hong Kong people. Holding an event like the Cathay Pacific Career Expo helps us to tell Hong Kong graduates about the many positions we have available and helps us attract individuals with high calibre and dedication."
In addition to holding the Cathay Pacific Career Expo, Cathay Pacific undertakes a wide range of community events at its headquarters. The airline hosts regular tours of Cathay Pacific City for school children and community groups. These tours for school children serve to introduce young people to the world of aviation and give them an insight into the many investments Cathay Pacific has made in Hong Kong. Since the opening of Cathay Pacific City in 1999, the airline has played host to more than 5,000 students.
