Malaysian Professionals In The Middle East Get Oil & Gas Update

PETRONAS and TalentCorp host networking dinner to build ties and boost development.

Doha, 20 June 2014 - Malaysian professionals living in Doha were last night briefed by Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS), Malaysia’s leading oil & gas giant, on the diverse career opportunities now available back home, following a Networking Dinner co-organised by PETRONAS and Talent Corporation Malaysia Berhad (TalentCorp).

The event is part of a Professional Networking and Recruitment Series planned under TalentCorp’s international Outreach and Engagement sessions in the Middle East. The outreach session will carry on today in Doha and will also take place in Dubai on 21 June.

The Networking Dinner took place in the Hotel InterContinental Doha, and brought together more than 100 Malaysian professionals. The session explored the scope for collaboration and professional opportunities that are available in Malaysia. The evening also provided a good opportunity for the diaspora to be apprised with the latest updates on Malaysia’s Economic and Government Transformation Programmes.

“Malaysians in the Middle East are a sought after asset, particularly those in the oil & gas industry. As Malaysia aims to move up the value chain in order to realise the goal of being a high-income nation, it is imperative that we connect with the talent to highlight the opportunities in Malaysia and how they can contribute to the nation’s development,” said Johan Mahmood Merican, CEO, TalentCorp.

TalentCorp’s Outreach and Engagement sessions create a platform where returning Malaysians can interact with leading companies that need their skills. This allows employers to tap into a wider talent pool to meet their growing industry needs.

The Outreach and Engagement sessions also help to establish channels for Malaysians to contribute from abroad, and potentially initiate conversations that lead to new ideas for cross-border business and professional opportunities.
