Our annual flagship career event, Setsail 2021 Virtual Career Conference in Computing and Engineering 啟航2021:就業視像研討會 will be held on 14-Apr-2021 Wednesday afternoon.

The virtual conference is about more than job opportunities. It includes talks about company culture, work-life balance, desirable attributes of employees, and other valuable tips that will help you getting ready for real employment.

We are very honoured to have 4 major IT employers in Hong Kong to speak to our students. They touch upon different specialties in the thriving local IT sector, including solution providers, product developers, communications and networking, system integration, cybersecurity, etc. Students will be exposed to the first-hand sharing of the many career possibilities available.

There will be a technical keynote on low-code development given by experts in the field. The topic is about a strong trend that will make a great impact on the IT industry in the near future.

In addition, an OU Computing CHing 師兄 graduated in MSc and BSc will share his remarkable journey since graduation that involved mobile application development, setting up his business in educational software, KOL platforms, and social networking sites.
