On Saturday 14th November 2015, as part of MAW the YPSN held a career talk at the Maritime Museum to an audience of over 30 people including student “ambassadors” as well as members of the general public. YPSN members Tia Poole of FP Marine, Joanna Au of Ince & Co., Caleb Cheng of Pacific Basin and Samantha Shum of BS Shipmanagement, & YPSN co-founder Tabitha Logan, led the discussions on what makes shipping an exciting and rewarding career choice. The audience listened attentively to the speaker’s backgrounds and what attracted them into the shipping industry as well as their career progress and future aspirations. To further thank the efforts of the student “ambassadors”, on Thursday 26th November, the YPSN with the kind help of HIT, took them on a tour of HIT Container Port Terminal in Hong Kong to witness up close how container cargo is moved in and out of Hong Kong harbour every day. It was a unique experience that all the students thoroughly enjoyed! This is the second year the YPSN has held career talks at Maritime Awareness Week which has received praise by both the industry and Hong Kong schools alike.
