Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you want to know about us and the program...

Eligibility

1. I do not have any textile or fashion background. Will this affect my application?​


We do not favor students from a specific background or degree. We care more about your personality, your beliefs and most of all, your long-term ambition. Since TAL Apparel provides our MTs with comprehensive training and career develop​ment, industry background is not a pre-requisite, but a passion in apparel products is definitely a big plus!

We believe, there would always be good days and not so good days at work, but if you love what you do, you would be able to rise above the challenges!




2. I am not a fresh graduate, am I eligible for the program?


We welcome recent graduates with less than one year of full-time work experience.




3. I am studying abroad now. Will my application be considered?​


Definitely. We welcome overseas students to apply. Chinese language proficiency is a plus but not a must.

While the recruiting process would start in March, it is possible to arrange early interviews and admission for overseas students who are coming back to Hong Kong during term breaks, or have interviews conducted over video-conference.




4. I do not have right of abode in Hong Kong. Will TAL still consider me?​


TAL Apparel welcomes applicants from all nationalities​. In fact, we do have several non-local students joining our program.

At TAL Apparel, we care about your long-term development. Even after graduation from the MT program, MT graduates will be kept under close monitoring to ensure specific development plans are in place and the right cross-functional exposure is given.
