Due to the limited opportunities for undergraduates to get to know their potential employers as highlighted in the TalentCorp-WorldBank survey, students are not always aware of their career options.

To address this, TalentCorp and local universities initiated a collaborative effort called the Sector Focused Career Fair (SFCF) in 2012.

Today, SFCF focuses on key sectors namely oil and gas, electrical and electronics, ICT (information and communication technology), telecommunications, biotechnology, finance, accounting, healthcare, tourism, FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) and education.

Both participating companies and universities gain from SFCF as it provides the opportunity for employers to reach out to undergraduates from specific sectors across various campuses.

The career fair also serves as an avenue for graduates to explore possibilities of internship or employment through direct engagement with employers. In return, companies have direct access to interviewing prospective talent, and to collate a database of student resumes.

The greatest beneficiaries would be the undergraduates themselves who are part of the organising team for these events on campus.

Student leader Satra Nur Izman from Universiti Malaysia Sabah:

“Being an organiser of SFCF was useful in preparing me for employment. I also built my self-confidence and soft skills through this experience.”

Jude Leonard of Nilai University on SFCF:

“I have improved my leadership capabilities, people management, delegation and communications skills – vital qualities that enable me to be successful in my future career.”
