The Joint-Institution Network for Student Success (JINESS), funded by the Hong Kong SAR Government’s Quality Enhancement Support Scheme (QESS, is a large project pioneering innovative solutions for job seekers and recruiters. It was jointly established by five local self-financing higher education institutions, namely Caritas Institute of Higher Education, Centennial College, Chu Hai College of Higher Education, Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (formerly Hang Seng Management College) (Principal Applicant) and Tung Wah College. JINESS aims to develop a “one-stop shop” by way of an interactive platform for both students and employers in offering solutions to searching career opportunities and recruiting talent respectively.
JINESS serves as a platform to heighten public and employers; awareness of the talent pool available from graduates and students of the self-financing higher education sector; it also aims to broaden students’ exposure to experiential learning opportunities.
A career portal “JINESS” has been built to facilitate employers in recruiting talent and to empower students for career success; it also offers career programmes for students to engage in career development and extensive networking with students from other institutions, companies and organisations, alumni and faculty members, to name but a few.
