    Summer job

    I will complete my 3rd year of Bio-chemistry at McGill university at Montreal, Canada. Since i am a HK resident i would like to get a summer job opportunity in any field of science, medicine or management. Salary not important, since i am looking to gain experience for one and a half months.
    I speak excellent english, and am responsible, creative and have leadership qualities.

    Honestly speaking you are starting a bit late to look for a summer job and/or a paid internship and/or an unpaid internship to gain experience.

    However, move forward in your quest ... just means that you have to work extra hard to play catch up.

    What you will need: Get your resume in order, have a kick butt opening/introduction letter, contacts - typically obtained in a number of ways.

    I would contact the various Chamber of Commerce's to see if they can put you in touch with companies seeking interns and/or companies that can use your budding skill sets

    Second, working simultaneously target the alumni of your school presently in HK and see if they have opennings ... if not be prepared to create your own position that fits/suits the needs of their organization.

    Next, continuing to work simultaneously, cold contact those professionals and/or companies in HK you have identified through your career research and propose to them a job/internship for the summer. This means present them with a solid job/internship description in which you can do for them. You do so by identifying a possible support role or a means of fulfilling a gap they may possibly have within their organization. Also ask if you could shadow a few prefessionals to gain an understanding.

    I am offering all of this having assumed you have spoken with the career development center at your school --- if you haven't done this .... DO IT!

    Keep your head high and stay motivated!
    Best of Luck!
