Datuk Seri Mustapa Bin Mohamed speaking to students at the myASEANinternship Market Day on April 21, 2016.
The myASEANinternship programme is back, bigger and better than ever, following its successful debut last year which saw 40 of the region’s brightest youths embarking on once-in-a-lifetime internships with 12 “ASEAN champions” including AirAsia, Axiata, Maybank, Nestlé and General Electric.
This year, the programme looks set to build on its early success by offering 100 internship placements with 24 organisations including the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI).
A collaboration between MITI and Talent Corporation Malaysia (TalentCorp), myASEANinternship gives high-achieving young ASEAN talent a head start on exploring international career opportunities from right here in Malaysia.
Through the programme, Malaysians studying locally or abroad undergo internships lasting a minimum of eight weeks with leading Malaysian employers at various ASEAN locations, while ASEAN nationals in Malaysian universities are able to intern in Malaysia. myASEANinternship is also open to fresh graduates within six months of graduation.
To cater to the overwhelming interest, a myASEAN Market Day was organised on April 21, 2016 at KL Sentral, Kuala Lumpur. This provided applicants the opportunity to meet, impress and earn a spot with one of the myASEANinternship employers.
