Shania was one of the speakers at the international Metropolis conference in The Hague. Given her charisma and outstanding flair and skills as a presenter, as well as her in-depth knowledge of both the the broader local and global challenges for the target group in question (i.e. the labor market integration of international students), she truly constituted one of the highlights of the symposium. Given her expertise and convincing, thoughtful communication, IQ decided to develop an international good practice sheet about Entry Point.

I had a pleasure to work with Shania for a couple of years in mutual projects aiming for international talent attraction and retention. Shania developed the EntryPoint mentoring programme and managed to create one of the most successful tools in bringing international students and companies & other organisations together in Finland. Shania is a hard working professional who always commits to her tasks with passion. I am happy to recommend her for tasks requiring systematic thinking, project development skills and managing vast networks

Shania’s brilliant project and event management skills, organizational wizardry, vast knowledge of different business areas and exceptional people skills have made an enormous impression on me. I have had the privilege to witness all of this twice in the extensive EntryPoint cross-cultural mentoring programme, which Shania has been in charge of. Her approach is always respectful, kind and happy. She has the gift of making everyone she meets feel special. I believe the mentoring programme’s success is largely due to Shania’s versatile competence and her networks, and I also believe Shania would be an asset in any organisation looking for a person with exceptionally good people and organizational skills.

Shania Shin is an outstanding student in the international Master’s Degree Program for Adult Education which I lead at University of Helsinki. She has consistently performed extremely well in the courses and I have seldom met a student who could match the intellectual quality, enthusiasm and focus of Shania. The results of Shania’s Master thesis is of great practical and also theoretical importance.
Shania Shin has started in December 2014 to operate as a part of our network in South Korea as an expert. Her job is to lecture degree programs in South Korean business and our customers' needs, and we also consult her to South Korea-related operations. I am convinced that Shania has the skills and the desire to promote Finnish companies' success in the Asian operations.
Shania is a personable individual that gets on well with both Finnish and international people around her. I also know her as very purpose-driven and positive can-do attitude person. She has strong passion for learning about Finnish business culture and being integrated into Finnish society. I think Shania’s working experiences and studies can add value to Finnish firm’s growth in the global market.
