Elysian Professional Career Planning 

Proudly Presented by Elysian Executive Solution

We are proud to present ourselves as the first headhunting company in the world to conduct a “financial industry workplace training” tour in well-known universities in the UK.

 

Since the beginning of this autumn, the University of Cambridge, Oxford University, London School of Economics and Political Science, Imperial College London, King's College London, The Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have held lectures for university students interested in the development of the financial sector. The training seminars in Hong Kong and UK were very well received by students.


“Is an investment banker’s life like Jordan Belford’s in The Wolf of Wall Street?”
 

“Is it true investment bankers can earn HKD2 million per year?”
 

“I’ve heard investment banking offers no work-life balance.”
 

“You have to be very good at maths to be an investment banker.”
 

“Top-tier investment banks are only interested in hiring students from top-tier regional universities and you have to have a minimum GPA of 3.5, right?

As one of the most experienced and specialised recruiters in the investment banking and asset management fields in Hong Kong, we’re privileged to be in a unique position. Our network provides us with deep insights into the discrepancies that can exist between university course content and the demands of a practical workplace. Through this programme, we’re able to confidently bridge the gap between candidates’ expectations and reality, providing students and junior professionals with invaluable insights from a spectrum of roles, to deliver a rich and full picture of the financial world.

 

In life there’s no one perfect job, but there will be one that’s perfect for you. Join us for an enlightening opportunity to learn from those in the know, take control of your ambition and become the master of your career journey.
