GES New Graduates 2021

Graduate Employment Survey (GES) is carried out every year by CEDARS-Careers and Placement to collect information on destinations or employment of the graduating class. 

Graduates of Class of 2021 are invited to participate in GES 20211. Your response is critical and valuable to the University for reviewing HKU students’ educational outcome. The GES information will serve as useful reference for different parties including your Faculty / Department, current and prospective students, as well as employers. Your support would be much appreciated.
