The first set of talks -- Career Talks for Secondary Students -- will be jointly presented by the Hong Kong Public Libraries (HKPL) and the Hong Kong Learning Community College. Four senior executives from the private sector will share their valuable working experience and brief students on career prospects and entry requirements for their respective fields.
