What would you get when you bring some of Malaysia's leading corporations and top talents together with exhilarating activities? A stimulating day of networking and talent matching, of course! That is exactly what is in store this March at the GRADUAN ASPIRE BORNEO CAREER FAIR, to be held in Kuching, Sarawak for the second year running.
GRADUAN® ASPIRE: 5 years on
A highly anticipated career and networking fair, GRADUAN ASPIRE was first conducted in Kuala Lumpur in 2011, and has since been receiving enthusiastic response from talents and industry leaders alike, attracting thousands of visitors to its booths 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.
Recognising 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.
Bigger and bolder
This year, the GRADUAN ASPIRE BORNEO CAREER FAIR returns to Malaysia's Cat City with an extended list of participating exhibitors and partner institutions; featuring 30 prominent corporations including ASTRO, CIMB, Maybank, Shell, Sarawak Energy & NAIM along with partnership with 13 renowned education establishments such as Sunway College, Swinburne University of Technology, UNIMAS and UiTM Sarawak.
The fair will also once again incorporate the sensational Inter-varsity Battle where five short-listed teams compete on centre stage, this time to present a winning pitch to promote Sarawak tourism on an international scale. Other highlights of the 2015 GRADUAN career fair include an exclusive talk by an industry leader on making the right choices for a successful future, as well as a lucky draw to win exciting prizes such as a GoPro camera and iPod shuffle.
Save the date
With offers of unparalleled access to some of Malaysia's biggest corporations and institutions as well as exhilarating activities to boot, the GRADUAN ASPIRE BORNEO 2015 is surely one of the most engaging career fairs ever to take place on Malaysia's Eastern shore. It is an occasion not to be missed, most especially for talents wanting to stand head and shoulders above the rest!
Organised by GRADUAN, the GRADUAN ASPIRE BORNEO 2015 will be opened to the public on 14th March 2015, from 10am to 5pm at the Pullman Hotel in Kuching, Sarawak.
