    So Wa Wei – Internship in Marketing & Communications – and Paralympic record-holder

    So Wa Wai, Hong Kong sprinter, current world-record holder in the Men's 200m T36 sprints. So did an internship with Adecco Hong Kong to gain further experience in the labour market. He was off to a fast start, focused upon planning a big Win4Youth event for clients, associates and employees: “My success on the track has been all about setting goals, planning and preparing for success with the help of a great team. And this is my approach now at Adecco. Of course, I’m learning new technical and business skills needed in a corporate environment. However I’m finding that my skills as an elite athlete such as determination, communication abilities, know-how about the world of sports as well as my discipline and determination will be beneficial in my new role of winning colleagues, associates and clients, and getting them involved to clock-up kilometres, network and raise funds.”

    “So is an asset to our team and organisation – not only as an elite athlete but as a great ambassador and colleague who has shown how to go beyond limits. His positivity and energy are inspiring everybody.”

    - Audrey Low, Country Manager at Adecco Hong Kong
