Sisi Zhang was next to present and she offered the students a wide range of advice in terms of how to make the best of their time at university, getting involved in internships in order to add more value to their early resume and the importance of networking to build strong relationships with other professionals.

Guest speakers share information about their careers and jobs, including roles and responsibilities, background and professional experiences, and talk about prospects of the profession in the future.”
