Interest In Jobs At Home Draws Crowd To Career Fair Down Under

Melbourne, 29 September 2014 - TalentCorp together with 25 employers from Malaysia participated in the GRADUAN – MASCA Australia Recruitment Drive 2014 in Melbourne on Saturday 27 September 2014, which attracted about 1,400 Malaysian undergraduates studying in Australia.

A variety of leading Malaysian employers were actively interviewing and recruiting Malaysians here, including the likes of Petronas, SapuraKencana, Prudential, Ekoworld, EY and Pharmaniaga. ”Corporate leaders engaged with Malaysian students to explain that whilst starting salaries were higher in Australia, their longer term career prospects were better served working with leading employers of Malaysia,” said Johan Mahmood Merican, CEO of TalentCorp.

”Intel has invested in Malaysia since 1972 to build a diverse business encompassing manufacturing, design and shared services. Likewise you should invest in building a career in Malaysia given the richness and diversity of opportunities”, said Chris Kelly, Head of Intel Malaysia Design Centre, when engaging Malaysian students in Melbourne.

Participating employers were clearly those committed to recruit young Malaysian graduate talent and invest in their future development, ”Like AirAsia X, you mustn't be satisfied being a 'jaguh kampung' and be willing to take on the world and succeed as a Malaysian” advised Azran Osman Rani, CEO of Air Asia X, who also spoke to students at MASCA Victoria’s Malaysian Aspiration Summit 2014 student conference.

The Recruitment Drive will continue in Sydney on 30 September 2014. For more information on the Sydney Recruitment Drive, visit:
