Organised by AmCham Vietnam, HCMC Chapter, with the aim of connecting university students and fresh graduate with our AmCham members/non-member companies, the Networking Night: Rise From Your Failure will be a once in a lifetime chance for university students/fresh graduate to truly connect and chat with our speakers, experienced employees as well as AmCham Scholar Alumni working in different organisations to widen your network and form a better career vision.
Throughout the event, our speakers, who are young successful business man and women, will be sharing their inspiring stories of how they found their passions, grasped the chances and run their own businesses. This will not be a focus on their achievement but their struggle on the journey to define themselves.
Who should attend this event?
If you are a university student or fresh graduate in the recent two year, who are finding your answers in career and/or life path and vague about what you are expected to learn to be competitive in a professional working environment. This networking night will not be another success-sharing event but an occasion where our successful young entrepreneurs will truly share with you difficulties and challenges they faced during their time in university and importantly how they overcame and turned it into their opportunities.
If you are already an employee, with working experiences and from any industries, interested in connecting with Vietnamese young people for fresh inspiration and would like to share your experiences as well as connect with our speakers and the community of talented AmCham Scholar Alumni, the event will be a great occasion for you.
