Career Planning

Holy shit! It's the terminator, we're all going to die/have limited career options in the future.

It’s been at the forefront of scaremongers’ A boards for years, you’ll know the kind – dirty faced, distant look in one eye, laser focus in the other, shuffling around urban retail developments using their own urine as both a means to stay clean and repel pigeons. 604 more words

香港理工大學「理大企業家」採訪

Willy 經常在不同場合分享他的 digital marketing 心得,但你知道他成為 digital marketer 背後的故事嗎? Willy 接受了香港理工大學「理大企業家」的採訪,以下是他的故事…
———————————————————-
賴志偉在 2008 年創業的時候,連他自己也沒想過他的公司竟能影響整個香港數碼廣告生態圈。事實上,他比別人看得遠、看得準。在數碼年代,廣告行銷工作已不可能局限於傳統渠道,Fimmick 另闢蹊徑,果然闖出了一條康莊大道。誠如他所說,成功是經驗的累積。在創辦Fimmick 前,他的經驗 是這樣累積過來的……

2000年科網泡沫爆破,IT 自然成為大學的較冷門和最容易收生的科目。那年,打算從事電腦行業的賴志偉選讀IT高級文憑課程,到了 2002 年畢業後,卻找不到相關程式編寫工作。在同學引薦下,他在一家經營中港電話服務的公司從事市場推廣工作了半年,由於對銷售工作較有興趣,於是轉投一家甚具規模的日資公司,負責卡務部的推銷工作。

可是,他才入職沒幾天便發生了「沙士」事件,客人拒絕他登門造訪,整整三個月裡,他只能按着上司給的電話清單,逐個電話打去推銷。既是「cold call」,自然得到冷待,賴志偉笑言這幾個月成為了他意志磨練期。

在卡務部期間,賴志偉工作積極主動,為了爭取訂單,可以不眠不休地準備標書,更向上司提議賣卡之餘兼賣解決方案;為了龐大的訂單,十幾個晚上通宵達旦工作,到廠裡額外做了不少本份以外的工作,以確保訂單如期完成。結果,他的努力得到上司認同,甚至獲邀到日本總公司。總公司的先進數據處理基地令他大開眼界,讓他認識到何謂「可變數據」,更在他心裡埋下創業的種子。

回港後,他和一位供應商朋友偶然聊起可變數據技術。沒想到這位朋友對可變數據技術既有認識,也有興趣,更提議將來一起合作創業。當時,賴志偉並不看好卡類產品市場 的前景,故早已有離開的打算。離職後,由於他的供應商朋友還未作好準備,所以他先加入一家銷售電郵系統的公司工作,直到 2008 年時機成熟的時候,他和那位朋友創辦了以可變數據為技術核心的印刷公司 ── Focus Imaging 。 30 more words
