Introducing our very first training workshop on Intercultural Communication.
Are you an international student looking to secure a role in Singapore after graduation?
Are you unsure what to do, where to start and how to go about your job search?
Are you looking for insights to the business environment, cultural norms, and communication skills needed to successfully land a job in Singapore?

Sounds relatable? - Then this training workshop is for YOU!

The trainers, Mr. Kenneth Leow and Ms. Peggy Zhao, will help to bridge your gaps in the knowledge of business context and intercultural communication, and help you overcome the cultural barriers.

You will be gaining the following insights from the workshop:

  • Understand cultural differences in interpersonal communication and workplace etiquette between Singapore and China and the common challenges faced by students from China.
  • Learn and practice techniques and processes to communicate effectively in a multicultural environment, during interviews and in the workplace.
  • Understand the business environment in Singapore and the critical differences between the business environments in Singapore and China.
  • The trainers will also touch on how to leverage communities and networks in Singapore to find opportunities.

Peggy will be covering three areas – business conditions in China, types of job opportunities available and tips on how a Chinese could “win” the job and succeed in building a successful career overseas.

Please note that Peggy’s session will be conducted in Mandarin towards the end of the training workshop (Q&A format).
