I was sitting out at the veranda one evening, watching the orange dusk closing down the horizon when I overheard my nieces were talking about choices whether to pursue their dream for tertiary education or going for a dream career and continue to study later on when their financial support is stable enough. Could have taken years, but studying and pursuing knowledge have no age limit, right?
Financial burden have always being the main concern when pursuing a higher tertiary education. Whether it’s local or oversea. Perhaps, decided to work first and continue study later on wasn’t such a bad idea after all.
However, for post graduates who have just finish their study and is actively looking for a good opportunity into career world, here’s something just for you.
What is this GRADUAN® ASPIRE?
Well, it is a highly anticipated career and networking fair. First conducted in Kuala Lumpur in 2011, and has since been receiving enthusiastic response from talents and industry leaders alike, attracting thousands of visitors annually. There, job seekers as well as those wishing to pursue their post-graduate studies have the opportunity to meet, interact and glean first-hand information from renowned corporations and institutions in their chosen fields. More than that, talents are also given greater industry exposure and a chance to impress prospective employers with their skills set through the many exciting programmes held throughout the fair.
Recognizing the potential to unearth and inspire even more talents, GRADUAN ASPIRE extended its reach to East Malaysia last year. Its debut in Kuching saw more than 5,000 talents learning more of the opportunities available to them, whilst some of the country’s leading corporations including Nestle, Shell, Alliance Bank, Maybank and PETRONAS were able to source for the most promising talents in Sarawak to join their organisations. The inaugural GRADUAN career fair in Kuching was also highlighted by an Inter-varsity Battle that presented participants with a challenge to globally market Sarawak’s unique foods and products.
