[Vietnam] In partnership with FE Credit and the International Alumni Job Network (IAJN) a "Careers in Finance" event was held in HCMC, Vietnam on the 5th July, 2018.
Over 50 Vietnamese international student graduates of universities in Australia, UK, US, France and Canada attended the information and networking event at the Saigon innovation Hub in the heart of the city.
After a brief introduction from Shane Dillon (Founder of IAJN) the attendees interacted in an inspiring presentation from Ms. Van Thuy Tuyen An (Head of Talent Acquisition Department) from FE Credit who communicated the wide array of career opportunities in the finance sector and that any type of graduate can find a meaningful and rewarding career at FE Credit.
Following on from Ms. An, next to speak was Marc Djandji, CFA (Head of Institutional Sales) at Rong Viet Securities. His talk was full of valuable insights into getting a job and the reality of being an investment analyst and both buy and sell side broker that have been gained from his extensive career in the securities sector in Vietnam and Canada.
An overarching theme to both presentations was the importance of developing a professional network to give you an edge in both getting a job and then being able to perform and excel in your career.
The event concluded with 45 minutes of professional networking and introductory interviews with FE Credit and Rong Viet Securities who both had talent acquisition people at the event.
