Attendees Feedback:
“I was impressed by the activities especially the role play of a hiring manager vs an employee. I learned a lot about what the contract consists of and what I can negotiate in the offer so that both sides have a win-win situation (company benefits as a whole as well as the new hire). I also enjoyed the self-assessment where I learned about myself and how self-monitoring can help me deal and communicate with people in U.S. corporate environment.” Yvonne Wu

“All the different activities were tied in to each other so that you can apply what you learned immediately. As a freshman, I really enjoyed the teamwork activity as it helped me understand the importance of working in a group and collaborating with others but also how certain individuals might be more influential or argumentative than others even though they may not have the best solutions. To get to the best result as a team, everyone’s perspective should be considered and equally valued but it’s how you give your feedback to the group.” Emma Chen
