The kick-off event of the “Career Readiness 2023” seminar series, an exclusive series tailored for VinUni students, was successfully held in a vibrant manner at VinUni on November 7th.

Workshop “From Zero to Hero” was successfully held at VinUni.

Career Readiness Series is an exclusive program for VinUni students. This series adopts a fresh and pragmatic approach to provide you with the knowledge and skills essential for excelling in your professional life.

The event was a resounding success with entrepreneurs, VinUni’s leaders and nearly 100 participants across 4 Colleges and all cohorts. The atmosphere was charged with enthusiasm as VinUni students had many questions for our esteemed Guest Speakers. We hope this has been a memorable and insightful event for all of you.

We want to extend our sincere appreciation to President, Provost, Professor Wong Kok Seng for attending the event, to our distinguished guest speakers whose invaluable insights and personal journeys enriched the event. We also want to express our gratitude to VinUnians – the engaged and enthusiastic audience for your active participation.

Having the chance to share and reflect on their past journeys, our accomplished Guest Speakers eagerly shared their experience in finding dream jobs and application process, navigating their careers, professional development and advice for VinUnians. Here are some highlight quotes from our Guest Speakers:

⭐Ms. Tran Thanh Huong (ESG Principal & Business Controller at Nokia Vietnam): “Being a management accountant was not my first dream, but I was persistent with my job, viewing myself as the partner of the business. Gradually, I developed a liking for it as my work added meaningful value to the business.”

Ms. Tran Thanh Huong – ESG Principal & Business Controller at Nokia Vietnam.

⭐Mr. Pham Kim Cuong (Founder of CoHost AI Inc.): “I wanted to get away from the shadow of my parents and challenge myself to try new things. Working at Airbnb (a no-name startup at that time), and founding my own company was part of those challenges.”

Mr. Pham Kim Cuong – Founder of CoHost AI Inc.

⭐Ms. Luu Hong Anh (Industry Manager at Google Singapore): “ You can’t be a hero forever – the hero can reverse back to zero as he or she takes on a new challenge. Where I am working now, we are often challenged with new initiatives.”

Ms. Luu Hong Anh – Industry Manager at Google Singapore.

Looking ahead, we’re excited to provide a glimpse into our second workshop, focused on the critical skills of crafting effective CVs, writing compelling cover letters, and mastering online assessments. This workshop is tailored to benefit those seeking to apply for internships, work placements or full-time jobs.
