As a graduate in Accounting & Finance most would have joined an accounting firm to “learn their trade” & qualify as a chartered accountant. But when the opportunity to qualify in one of the premier banks in the country arose, I knew it was an opportunity too good to pass up on.
Stepping into the bank for my first day, I was pretty nervous. But my colleagues who are both very helpful and friendly instantly put me at ease. Based in Finance & Performance Management division I am given the opportunity to work on some of the banks leading initiatives. With the guidance and support given by my experienced colleagues I find my self not only learning the “trade” but also contributing to the banks efforts. This is both satisfying and rewarding.
Working here at Hong Leong bank has not only given me the opportunity to learn the business but it also gives me the opportunity to improve my proficiencies in problem solving, inter-personal skills and other abilities. This is because in an industry which is highly competitive we are constantly challenged to improve. As the saying in Hong Leong goes “If better is possible, good is not enough.”
