Job Hunting Workshop for Anthropology Graduates

On March 24, 2014, a Job Hunting Workshop for Anthropology Graduates was held by the Postgraduate Students' Society of Anthropology Department(PSSAD). Four previous CUHK anthropology postgraduate students-- ZHONG Wen, Jo YUNG, Amy HO and Astrid CHANG came and shared their working experience with participants. After a short speech of each speaker, the workshop were divided freely into four groups so the speakers could talk freely with participants and answer their questions on career lives of anthropology majors. Around 30 MA and MPhil students joined the workshop and enjoyed this great opportunity to find out more about their future.
