HK DE Graduate Support Scheme

As one of the core sectors of Hong Kong’s vibrant creative industries, the digital entertainment (DE) industry has been changing rapidly in the past few years. DE companies are more and more technology driven. The prevalence of social media and mobile platforms have driven new way of operation and development. It is not easy for companies to recruit new talents who can meet their technical needs and cope with the new business environment. On the other hand, it is also getting more and more difficult for fresh graduates to get a job in the industry since they normally lack the relevant trade experience which is an essential requirement by many DE companies.

The Hong Kong Digital Entertainment Association (HKDEA, the Organizer) is pleased to launch the 2nd Hong Kong Digital Entertainment Industry Fresh Graduate Support Scheme (Support Scheme) with staunch support and generous sponsorship from Create Hong Kong (CreateHK) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The Support Scheme has the following objectives:

  • To subsidize and encourage local digital entertainment companies to employ and train fresh graduates and nurture the latter to become new blood of the industry;
  • To facilitate local fresh graduates in reaching potential employers for entering into the industry and be advised of the prospects in the digital entertainment industry; and
  • To foster the development of the digital entertainment industry with more abundant supply of digital talents working in the industry
  • For graduates interested to develop your career in the digital entertainment industry, please complete a short Questionnaire to let us better understand your view.

The Support Scheme opens for applications on 15 January 2016, more details on http://gradsupport.hk
