Harry’s career advice:
What attributes are you looking for when recruiting new staff?
Attitude and culture. We look for those like-minded colleagues who have a work-hard attitude and respect towards their own background and those of others.
What advice would you give to CBE graduates who are navigating the current job market?
Amidst the high unemployment rates, there is an opportunity for people who can bring in new perspective to the market. As a student, it can be hard to know your own strengths or weaknesses, which is why platforms like the CBE MomentuM and Professional Development program or the CBE Internship program and their respective mentors, will guide you to find the best version of yourself. I’ve had a mentor since my CBE days, whom I still visit whenever I’m going through a difficult time.
