1. Raising awareness of employer branding among students, particularly in IPTAs*
Industry Engagement Zone (Ind-E-Zone)
- Designed to be a dedicated area within university campuses, Ind-E-Zone is a one-stop career information centre which will connect students to industry-relevant content and educate them on internship and career opportunities within Malaysia’s key industries.
- The centre also offers a range of activities such as industry engagements, networking sessions, career talks (C-Talks) and sharing sessions to help young Malaysian talent secure a career of choice.
Semester break programmes

2. Connecting employers to select group of students for internship and recruitment purposes
MY ASEAN internship
- A collaboration between the Ministry of International Trade and Industry and TalentCorp to increase awareness of Asean among youth in Malaysia.
- High achieving Malaysian students in public and private universities in Malaysia and abroad will get the opportunity to do internships with leading Malaysian employers at various Asean locations, while Asean students in Malaysian universities will be able to intern in Malaysia.
Sector Focused Career Fair (SFCF)
- A collaborative effort between TalentCorp and local universities, the SFCF is an industry-specific career fair, which focuses on employment and internship opportunities in Malaysia’s top economic sectors.
- Both participating companies and universities gain from SFCFs as these fairs provide opportunities for employers to reach out to undergraduates from specific sectors across various campus.
3. Enhancing student participation for employer initiatives, especially by IPTA students
- TalentCorp has been partnering with CIMB since 2013 and has seen an increase in participation every year.
- The CIMB ASEAN Stock Challenge is a regional stock trading competition organised annually to give university students from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Cambodia the “hands-on” experience with cross-border trading in four major Asean stock exchanges.
