Forum: Mandarin in the Workplace

Bridging the gap between university and a career is a testing time, and often your early career can bare little relevance to your degree subject. But for those of us who have spent the time and energy learning Chinese as a second language, what are the options for using it in the workplace? 

The aim of this event is to support recent graduates and final year students with Chinese language skills and to give them insights into how to make the most of their language abilities in the workplace. The event will be run as a forum with a panel of professionals who are currently using Mandarin in their work and have been invited to share their experiences, hints and tips on how to find a job where you can use your Mandarin. 

This will also be a useful networking opportunity to meet other university graduates/final year students with Chinese language skills, as well as to find out more about the Chopsticks Club and its work in connecting the UK-China network. We are delighted to be collaborating with the British Council on this event, who will be present to share their insights into this topic and offer advice to those present. To make this event as beneficial as possible, we request that attendees please submit up to 3 questions in advance for discussion during the forum.
