Engineering Students Explore Internship And Employment Opportunities At SFCF USM

SEBERANG PERAI, 20 November 2014 – Talent Corporation Malaysia Berhad (TalentCorp), in collaboration with the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), today hosted the final Sector Focused Career Fair (SFCF) of the year at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Nibong Tebal campus, focusing on the engineering sector.

SFCF USM aims to educate the public, particularly students, on the career paths available under one of Malaysia’s priority sectors and provide opportunities for participants to meet with over 50 prospective employers including Agilent, Celcom Axiata, Freescale Semiconductor, MARA Aerospace & Technologies, Prasarana, Schlumberger Seismic Manufacturing and Sime Darby. And with over 2,000 students expected to attend today, the career fair also provides a platform for participating employers to scout for potential talents from universities in Malaysia.

 "TalentCorp’s collaboration with MIDA for SFCF USM is to ensure we expose our young Malaysian engineering talent to the jobs of the future with our leading high technology industry players," said Johan Mahmood Merican, CEO of TalentCorp.

 "The SFCF brings industry along with the available career opportunities closer to the university, and helps them engage and share their aspirations directly with our students," said YBhg Professor Dato’ Dr Omar Osman, Vice Chancellor of USM, in the spirit of fostering greater industry academia collaboration as called for by the Prime Minister in his Budget 2015 speech.

Graduates and undergraduates will be also able to explore internship and employment opportunities through activities such as Coffee Talk and Career Talk sessions, which enable participants to engage in a relaxed atmosphere with corporate leaders and senior human resource representatives of participating companies.

 "Through events like SFCF USM, we aim to engage our young talent on the rewarding career paths available to them, and to also guide them on how to be industry-ready and improve their employability," said Mr V. Rajendran, HR Director of TORAY Group (Malaysia).
