With the participation of leading companies from various industries this year, University Life Manager Haslina Malek expects a good turnout of both Curtin Sarawak’s students and alumni as well as members of the public who are keen to advance their careers.“We are looking forward to a great response this year to compliment our huge success in attracting a large number of employers from the different industries. Our partners are definitely on a lookout for talents and we encourage all to make it a point to visit our fair to network with them,” said Haslina.
She attributes the success to the intensified networking efforts of the Career & Alumni Office and the two schools.
“Many of those who visited the Curtin Career Fair in the past have benefitted from the contacts made with the participating employers and successfully gained employment with them. A number of our students were offered positions even before they graduated. And as many of the companies are either located outside Miri or are local companies with branches or subsidiaries elsewhere, the potential for employment in other locations, including overseas, is great,” she added.
She also said that, for Curtin Sarawak’s students, the Curtin Career Fair offers the platform to network with some of the university’s leading industry partners. Final year students, in particular, can take advantage of the fair to secure employment upon graduation or to network for future reference.
