Attitude and Problem Solving Competencies are the Key Successful Factors

Being optimistic towards China’s growth potential, I have decided to join Bank of China (HK)’s Graduate Programme (was called the “Officer Trainee Programme”) when I graduated. With two years’ hard work, I was nominated to join the Management Trainee Programme (MT), and am very excited to have become one of the representatives in the Standing General Meeting with the Deputy Chief Executive of the Bank, which is far beyond my expectation.

Being the Bank’s Management Trainee has meant a lot to me – I enjoyed plentiful of learning opportunities, particularly I could join some remarkable projects of the bank, like the launch of offshore RMB businesses. From 2009 onwards, the launch of the offshore RMB policy has brought tremendous amount of opportunities to the market, but at the same time, a lot of challenges did come along. Indeed, it was a brand new business, and there weren’t any predecessors or prior experiences that we could refer to. Started it from scratch, our team tried to build up the entire offshore RMB business workflow, which has latter become the market standard. Throughout the entire process, I have learned profoundly about the overall operations of the bank and larger financial market. Such experience has been remarkably useful to me when I conducted sales pitches later on, and enabled me to grow professionally.

Attitude and problem solving competencies are the key successful factors. This is the sincere advice I would like to give to all graduates who want to join our Bank. Regardless you are a new joiner or a department head, for sure you would face various kinds of challenges during your work; here, steadfastness in willing to take up challenges, upholding the can-do and sacrificing spirit, are the cornerstone to success.

And now the regional expansion into the South East Asia market has become Bank of China (HK)’s new business development strategy. This is definitely a golden opportunity, we all look forward to your participation!

Embrace the Challenge. Grasp the Exciting Opportunities.

I joined Bank of China (HK) right after my graduation from the university. Despite graduating from the degree Programme of Business Administration, the complexity and diversity of banking industry was far beyond my imagination. Gratefully, if I was a blank page back then, the drawing page is now filled with colours.

My career blossomed at one of the branches. Upon completion of several job rotations at frontline, I was able to consolidate and grow insights towards towards the retail products and service models. I was then nominated by the Bank to be one of the contestants in the “Outstanding Financial Planners Award”, hosted by “the Hong Kong Institute of Bankers”, in which I obtained the “Gold Award”. I was later being selected to join a three-month exchange Programme in Shanghai and Qingdao, which excitingly deepened my understanding towards the financial industry in the Mainland, far earlier than my peers.

Then I made some significant moves in my career by turning myself from frontline to teams in the middle office, shouldering responsibilities on strategic development, product analysis and customer acquisition. All these have vastly enriched my exposure. Given the borad business platform of Bank of China (HK), our colleages do enjoy a large room for career enrichment through internal hires and promotions – discovering and developing potentials. Embrace the challenges; you’ll see all the exciting opportunities ahead.
