TalentCorp And UiTM Hold Sector Focused Career Fair On Career Opportunities In Shared Services And Outsourcing

Shah Alam, 12 November 2013 - As part of its strategic thrust to optimise Malaysian talent, as well as facilitating awareness among the public of the career opportunities available in priority sectors 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). The event, which ends tomorrow, was officiated by YB Senator Dato’ Sri Abdul Wahid bin Omar, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department.

SFCF UiTM was a joint effort between TalentCorp, Graduan, MDeC and UiTM. The focus areas for the fair were Shared Services and Outsourcing (SSO).

Dato’ Sri Wahid shared his thoughts during a dialogue session at the SFCF that “Malaysia’s socio-economic development has to progress in a strategic and sustainable manner to achieve the vision of a transformed economy. Among the measures needed to achieve this is comprehensive planning through formulating effective policies, developing programmes through outcome based approach, strengthening human capital towards elevating efficiency and professionalism, and establishing organisational capacities for effective services delivery. Economic growth can be achieved through more efficient services delivery, and the different companies exhibiting at this career fair today are proof that the Shared Services and Outsourcing industry will be a key focus area to propel Malaysia forward.”

According to Johan Mahmood Merican, CEO of TalentCorp, “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."

SFCF UiTM is supported by more than 30 companies, including AIG, DHL, Electrolux, Frost & Sullivan, GlaxoSmithKline, HP, IBM, LaFarge, Sime Darby and PwC.

“UiTM’s vision is to establish its reputation as a premier university of academic excellence, able to produce dynamic individuals of world-class standards and globally competitive with sound ethical standing. Here we aim to enhance the knowledge and expertise of the next generation of talents in all fields of study through professional programmes, research work and community service based on moral values and professional ethics. In this globalised world, we welcome such initiatives as this sector focused career fair as it provides our students with a solid platform to explore critical industries like SSO and to contribute towards Malaysia’s growth,” said Professor Dato’ Dr. Abdullah Mohammed Said, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Student Affairs, UiTM.

The SFCF provides an opportunity for graduates to meet with CEOs and senior HR representatives of participating companies, while providing a platform for companies to scout for potential talent from universities in Malaysia. Several critical industries are in need of top talent, and the undergraduates are able to use this opportunity to better understand these developing sectors in Malaysia. The companies also have the opportunity to educate the public about industry developments, sectoral branding and increase understanding of the SSO sector.

The two-day event included Career Talks and Couch Corner Slot. Career Talks is a platform developed for the young generation to engage with prominent industry leaders while the Couch Corner Slot was designed for the visitors, especially students, to interact with the companies in a relaxed atmosphere.
