    Cheuk Pow – STA Graduate 2007-08

    “It has been a great opportunity for me to join STA as a Finance Graduate. In the past months, I have been in the business planning and analysis section where I have assisted with the preparation of the budget for the 2009 financial year. This has given me a valuable insight into State Transit’s business focus. The working environment is fantastic and I have had the opportunity to visit a number of depots and regional offices. I regularly attend meetings with a variety of professionals involved in planning and analysing our business. State Transit has also organised a series of workshops for the graduates to attend to equip us with various skills for our relevant positions.”
