Joining Hang Seng Bank as Summer Seed is definitely a worthwhile investment in my career path. The Programme provides students with extensive opportunities to network and interact with business leaders. We had valuable opportunity to present to business heads towards the end of the Programme, where I shared the key deliverables and challenges during my internship, as well as insights to the Bank. The opinions from Summer Seeds are valued and we are provided with lots of support, resources and chances to shine.
With guidance from mentors, care from colleagues and training from instructors, Summer Seeds sprout to life as plant. I joined Hang Seng as Management Trainee upon graduation from university. My Summer Seed experience encourages me to speak up and express my thoughts proactively and confidently. I also develop team spirit which is the core value at Hang Seng. With enthusiasm, I will continue to exchange innovative ideas with colleagues, and leverage on technology to transform the Bank internally, thereby offering customers with cutting-edge products and services.

I joined the Summer Seed Programme and was attached in Corporate Banking department in 2014, in which I met a lot of friendly and supportive mentors and colleagues. During the 10-week Programme, I gained valuable hands-on banking experience. I was also empowered by Senior Management and thus had the opportunity to take up challenges and new initiatives. At the same time, I was given adequate guidance and advice along the way that assisted me to excel during the time. Indeed, I enjoyed the supportive working culture so much that I decided to join the Commercial Banking Management Trainee Programme upon graduation.
The knowledge and experiences gained during the Summer Seed Programme have brought me competitive edges that I was successfully admitted to the Management Trainee Programme in 2015. These experiences certainly helped me adapt to the ever-changing commercial world easier. The spirit of “keep challenging myself” learned from the Summer Seed Programme encouraged me to take up a completely new role in Strategic Planning and Corporate Development after more than 3 years of Commercial Banking career. I am now involved in driving new initiatives for the Bank, and have the opportunity to participate in challenging projects.
Summer Seed Programme is a good start for students to start a professional banking career and there are many opportunities here at Hang Seng Bank waiting for you.
