Young Professional Talks#1 | China still a Career Accelerator

24 Gennaio 2022


What are the top skills to leverage for a career in a commercial role in China?

Is China still a career accelerator?

Are there opportunities for young professionals in your company?


These are just a few of the questions addressed by our speakers during the Young Professional Talk #1 held both online and in Beijing on January 20th 2022. We asked Germano Rollero – GM Greater China Etihad, and Daniel A. Mape Moreno – Global Account Manager, Air China about their daily work and career perspectives in China. The dialogue was moderated by Sarah Orlando – CICC Board Member in Beijing. 

Despite the uncertainty brought about by the pandemic, the China market – they commented – will remain important for young talents.
