Events

We host a variety of events throughout the year for our members and community.  Since our association’s formation, we have been extremely active in the community, creating events for business training opportunities and networking for some of Washington’s most active business leaders and members to participate in.  Our numerous charity events give back to the companies and organizations that support the Chinese American community. I strongly encourage you to join us at our events, and stay tuned with the latest happenings by subscribing to our monthly newsletter and checking our calendar of events!

Some of our Events:

Resume Workshop

The Resume Workshop creates a platform to help students critique and polish their resume with the professional advice of local recruiters, as they prepare for their first steps out in the business society. The workshop also highlights various local business owners and professionals. The panelists are seasoned professionals in the community, with many experience in recruiting and reviewing resumes.

The workshop included presentations, question and answer sections, and all panelists were able to break into small groups and spend one-on-one time with each student in order to give the best and most accurate critiques.

HKBAW recognizes the importance of empowering its student members and young professionals to confidently approach business opportunities by pooling the organization’s resources in order to best prepare them for their future careers and ambitions.
