AGSM MBA students recently participated in the 4th annual University of California International Business Consortium (UCIBC) Career Fair, held on February 29, 2008 at UC San Diego. Though open to domestic students as well, the event was geared primarily toward bicultural and bilingual MBA students. Among the companies represented at the fair were Sony, Visa, Deloitte, and US Airways.

“It’s one of the best opportunities for international students to connect with employers that have the ability to sponsor,” said Monica Martin, Director of Career Services at AGSM. “It’s the only medium we have for these students. There’s no other event locally or even in Southern or Northern California that’s expressly geared toward international students.”

Martin was impressed by the turnout of first year students, who showed the dedication to drive or carpool from as far as Palm Desert. “To have driven all the way from Riverside on a Friday…I’m very proud of them,” Martin said, who had coordinated sessions to prepare the students for the career fair, in which they practiced their elevator pitches and learned how to dress properly for meeting company representatives. Thirty-nine AGSM MBA students attended this year’s fair, an increase from the 21 that attended last year’s.

Kai Chung, a current AGSM MBA candidate who attended the event, said, “As an international student who is not familiar with the rigors of job application, I found the UCIBC Career Fair to be a very valuable experience in honing my job application skills and building up my confidence in expressing my views to the participating companies. I even secured an ‘on-site’ interview with a globally-renowned consultancy firm while at the career fair.”

One of the career fair’s success stories is Yuko Nishiyama, who landed a job at Deloitte Tax LLP after attending last year’s career fair at UCLA. “I did not know at all how to find a job in the United States as an international student,” Nishiyama said. “If I had not gone to the fair, I would not have found a summer internship and ultimately the permanent job at Deloitte.”

“I would not hesitate at all to recommend all future batches of MBA students to go to the UCIBC Career Fair,” Chung said. “Not just for the job opportunities the fair provides, but more importantly, the invaluable experience of engaging the participating companies in a meaningful discussion.”

日本汽車產業的生死關頭

Yahoo!奇摩汽車 Press L

在以發達的公共交通為重要標誌的成熟經濟體中,汽車產業是否註定衰落?步歐美市場後塵,日本汽車市場已經停滯。在過去10年的年度銷售量始終維持在450萬輛上下,小型車銷售則與70年代持平,37年前的年度銷量甚至比今天還高出6.5%。巨大的日本工業心臟在2007年儼然處於半停頓狀態,幾家工廠不是半做半歇就是徹底停工達數週之久。這也讓人不禁懷疑,去年10月的東京車展是否已成為大和汽車產業的最後一支舞?

日本工業心臟停止跳動?

經濟學家會告訴您日本是一個有著「堅實根基」的國家!日本是世界第二大經濟體,有著創造財富的製造業基礎、富支持力的學院派金融結構,以及3.8%的9年來最低失業率。但是這個亞洲島國卻尚未完全走出經濟停滯、通貨膨脹和政治醜聞的陰影。

身為日本支柱工業,日本車廠們感到憂心忡忡,因為即使有堅實的經濟基礎支撐,日本國內車市卻還是死水一潭。10年來的新車銷量到450萬輛就無力上攻,幾乎是日本特產的小型車銷量仍停留在70年代的水準。37年前所有車型的總銷量比今天還高出6.5%,幾近飽和的汽車保有量使得日本國內市場只能依賴換車需求。結果是大日本工業心臟在2007年暫時停止跳動,幾個組裝廠不再全天運營,或者徹底停工達數周之久。這幅情景在美國或歐洲早已見慣不怪,可是誰會想到竟連日本也變成這樣。

中獎機率低也是種好處,不過一但被中了金額變得很低,猜想就沒有什麼人想買了。
