MANCHESTER DEBUNKING APPLICATIONS REPORT
Date: 27th September 2017
Venue: University of Manchester
This event was organized by MACFIS and MSSM. MSSM helped us in logistics and marketing. Due to the lack of time for marketing, the turnout rate was not high. We have a total of 11 people who attended the talk, and 4 MACFIS committees were there to help out. Most of the participants were freshers.
Registration started from 2pm until 2:15pm. Nik Marina (Scotland Regional Director of MACFIS) started the event by introducing about MACFIS. After that, Hau Jian (President of MACFIS) talked about networking and grooming tips and Jane (Secretary of MACFIS) conducted a CV workshop. Participants were asked to practice handshake with the committees. Also, all the participants were asked to imagine they are at a networking event and talk to the person next to them to practice their networking skills. We had a very engaging networking session right after that.
We received positive feedbacks from the participants and they found that this event was very informative. This event has certainly allowed them to prepare themselves for internship and job applications. Overall, this event was indeed a successful one.
