Exclusive event for MSc KM students & graduates
The KM Career & Challenges Series
KM as a Career - An In-Depth Dialogue with the Professional
Is KM a profession? Can KM be a career? What kind of works a KM manager is supposed to do in reality? What will be the expectations? What is the prospect of being a KM manager? Are these the answers you are looking for if you are a KM student or graduate, or if you want to develop a second career? If these are your questions too, this is an opportunity you can't lose.
We have invited some of our KM graduates with solid experience in the KM profession, and also experience in our MSc KM course in this activity. They will tell us their stories, and will have an in-depth interactive dialogue with us, with focus on:
- Market recruits KM professionals with special skills (IT, HR, admin, etc), what are the right mix?
- The happy moments and the challenges as a KM professional
- What that's not taught in the class? How to bridge the gap?
- Future outlook of KM career in HK
