• Now ask one of you neighbors how
much he/she expects/wants to earn.
• Please raise your hand if you
expect/want to earn more than your
neighbor.
How much would you expect or want to
earn?
• What make you “worth” more than your
peers?
• What make you “worth” $$$?
• Is it your knowledge?
• Is it your ability to solve complex
problems?

Imagine that…
• Bitcoin is a digital currency. Doing a money
transaction using Bitcoin costs much less than
using a bank.
• It is gaining popularity.
• You are asked to write an report to analyse the
potential impact of Bitcoin on the banking
sector.
• What do you know that your boss can’t get
it directly from the
Internet/Google/Wikipedia?
• If your boss can get it directly from the
Internet, why would he/she pay you $$$ to
43
What are Employers looking for when
hiring staff?
• Besides good economic knowledge &
analytical skills:
• Communication skills (verbal and writing)
• Team work skills
• Ability to adapt to new challenges
How will you do in a tutorial?
