BSc QFIN, Year-3
A few months ago, I felt lost using ChatGPT to amend my CV and practicing interview skills in front of a mirror - only to receive numerous rejections. I desperately wanted to escape from this darkness, so I sought advising from Mr. David Boyd-Thomas, an English Communicaton Tutor. He provided me with guidance on crafting a CV and preparing for interviews that aligned with current Finance job market. Thanks to his assistance, I managed to secure an internship and emerged from what was the darkest period of my life.

Not only did Forrest give me a lot of useful advice regarding different aspects of my U life, such as going exchange and setting academic goals, he also is my friend who encouraged me when I was down. We had many great times together. I’m grateful to have such a responsible and helpful advisor in HKUST!

My advisor is a patient and extremely helpful advisor. He not only helped me a lot with academic difficulties, but also with career and exchange advice. He didn’t mind me bothering him with tons of emails and appointments which made me feel secure in my freshman years and the exchange experience.

Transitioning to university seemed daunting at first; tracking study pathways and different opportunities while being in a completely new setting. Thankfully, having an academic adviser by my side was exactly what was needed to stay on track and keep everything in check. My advisor consistently made a generous effort to help out and provide motivation at times!

I am grateful to my SBM advisor, Ray. I am always relaxed, secured, and delightful in my sharing with him. No matter a casual sharing or seeking for some advice on countless aspects, he is willing to listen to me with a sincere heart. Self-understanding and personal insights are also gained via the communication with him.
