Last Sunday, UiTM teamed up together with TalentCorp to organized a career fair on the campus grounds to give students an insight about the working industry. Unlike every other Education fair that is held yearly in malls, this event prepares each individual about the challenges in work and how to overcome it through real life interaction with corporate representatives.
The event was indeed a success being supported by so many interested parties, students were even more than willing to sacrifice their weekend to attend this beneficial and educational fair. I
Instead of facing the world as a fresh graduate without any experience or idea of where to start, MediaCorp has took the initiative to prepare their future leaders (which is us! haha)
Dato’ Sri Wahid, the Minister in The Prime Minister Department who officiated this event sharing his thoughts during a dialogue session held at SFCF.
“The success of our Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) depends on having the right quantity and quality of talent, to support Malaysia’s priority sectors to move up the value chain and continue growing. Malaysia certainly has a strong pipeline of young talent. TalentCorp and UiTM are hosting this SFCF to provide exposure and attract our young Malaysian graduates to pursue an exciting career with the fast growing shared services sector. We certainly believe it is a win-win proposition – through a career in shared services, our young graduates will enjoy an international experience from right here in Malaysia and at the same time, our graduates can play their part in contributing to the success of the industry and Malaysia’s transformation. “ -Dato’ Sri Wahid
As part of its strategic thrust to scout out young Malaysian talents, as well for building public awareness on the available career opportunities under the 11 National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs), Talent Corporation Malaysia Berhad (TalentCorp) hosted a Sector Focus Career Fair (SFCF) today at University Teknologi Mara (UiTM).
