2023 Professional Networking 职海引航

About Professional Networking

NZCSA’s Networking event series was first held in 2015 and has become one of our annual flagship events. It has attracted positive response from more than 400 participants every year for its effectiveness in helping students and businesses connect with each other and producing positive outcomes for all stakeholders.

Purpose of Professional Networking

As one of NZCSA’s annual flagships events, Professional Networking aims to provide an opportunity for students to communicate with industry professionals and help students address their questions regarding the recruitment. We hope that through participating in our series of events, students will be more familiar with the company culture, able to identify the most suitable careers, and well-equipped with a variety of hard and soft skills.
