Career Navigator
4 July 2015



Invitation to CityU Convocation’s “Career Navigator”

Embracing the caring spirit to nurture the young generation, the CityU Convocation is organising a Forum entitled “Career Navigator” at 2:30pm on 4 July 2015 (Saturday). The event aims to help aspiring alumni and graduating students to navigate the labyrinth of career path and life philosophy.

The Convocation is privileged to have invited Mr Simon Ma (馬興文先生), a contemporary master who crosses over music, art, design and various domains, to join the Forum and unveil his compelling career stories as well as wisdom on his life philosophy that leads to his tremendous success in the art kingdom.
