    Why do recruiters ghost you? ft Mandri Hettiarachchi

    Why do recruiters ghost you? ft Mandri Hettiarachchi

    Ghosting can feel like making a 'knock knock' joke but nobody asks you "Who's there?"



    Although a hard pill to swallow, getting ghosted by recruiters is EXTREMELY common, and we're sure it's part of the arc of succeeding in your job search.



    We're pleased to have invited Mandri Hettiarachchi, Capital Placement's very own Global Partnerships Associate, to help us deep dive into the prospect of getting ghosted by recruiters, and how we can distinguish them as mistakes we can rectify and factors that are not quite in our control.

    Fast track your career with leadership skills: a guide for young professionals ft Droston Tang

    Fast track your career with leadership skills: a guide for young professionals ft Droston Tang

    Do you consider yourself a born leader or a made leader? 👀



    The demands and rate of growth expected from an intern are increasingly more in the modern work culture, where more young professionals are entrusted with more responsibility and accountability.



    This also opens the door to cultivating the skill of leadership at an early stage of your career. Like any other soft skill, leadership can be an acquired asset for leveraging a better trajectory for your career.



    We're excited to have invited Droston Tang, Business Professional and Youth Leadership Mentor, to share his experience with achieving leadership and how can young professionals approach the concept of leadership early on in their careers.

    Inside Intelligence: Decision-making for career growth ft Karen Kim

    Inside Intelligence: Decision-making for career growth ft Karen Kim

    As young professionals thrive in the new career setting, being assertive and making planned decisions can seem increasingly challenging.

    Firstly, you’re just getting started. You are unsure of what floats, what is difficult to implement, and figuring out where you can draw the line when implementing each action.

    However, the general idea of decision-making is vital for interns and new professionals since the current working environment encourages everyone to be owners of their actions.

    To discuss the prospect of leadership and decision-making during the sunrise phase of your career, we are very excited to have invited Karen Kim, CEO of Human Managed, a platform dedicated to facilitating and improving decision-making.

    Taking a step forward in sustainability as Gen-Z ft Anthony Bennett

    Taking a step forward in sustainability as Gen-Z ft Anthony Bennett

    How was your experience of 2020 and the global pandemic?



    Well, we all have a unique answer to that, don't we?



    As unprecedented and widespread as it was, historically there have been many challenges that we face as a global community in terms of climate change, health epidemics, social and cultural development, and more.



    Sustainability is not just initiating a few 'good deeds' to reverse some of the negative impacts on the globe but is an approach that can shape a better future for everyone.



    We are pleased to have invited Anthony Bennett, CEO of Reboot The Future, a company committed to sustainable efforts through campaigns, education and leadership programmes, to speak on sustainability and what it means to the Gen-Z community.



    Anthony shares his insights on the importance of having active conversations around sustainability, and how the young generation can make their mark in altering harmful global actions through sustainable habits.
