Inspiring secondary students for future career planning

At ExxonMobil, we believe in inspiring and engaging future generations, helping them get ready to shape the future for themselves, as the world of work is rapidly changing both in the job market and the workplace.

They also discussed some of the changes in the workplace in the past and present, and the value, attitudes and skills needed for future career success.
Also speaking at the talks were a few junior colleagues, including Coby Wong of Hong Kong Marine & Blending Operations, Wynne Leung of Hong Kong Public & Government Affairs and Eugene Lau of Hong Kong Commercial Vehicles Sales.
