In the final days of high school over 15 years ago (gasp!) and with the dreaded SPM results looming (yes I know it sounds like forever ago), I harbored a small (& wishful) thought of maybe, just maybe and a little bit of you-never-know attitude of going to Pratt Institute in New York to study something in design (but i couldn’t draw to save my life). Yeappp, I had some mighty big dreams.
Needless to say, once reality hit (in the form of the parental (s) saying no way no how) so I chose to explore options. I picked a local college; with the provision it would be an ‘arty’ school and proceeded to bury myself in the world of Mass Communication focusing on Film&TV. Many years later, after a stint overseas and back again I finally figured out what I want to do for the rest of my life; and it has almost nothing to do with Film or TV… wish someone could have pointed it out once I finished local college..
These days not only do you still have uni / college fairs or roadshow to attend; there are career and networking fairs to help you kick-start your future in the corporate world. The one and only #graduanaspire is a highly anticipated career and networking fair; first conducted in Kuala Lumpur in 2011. When the whole idea of career networking began to take flight, GRADUAN ASPIRE extended its reach to East Malaysia (specifically Sarawak) last year. Its debut in Kuching saw more than 5,000 young ‘uns learning of the opportunities available to them, and taking into account some of the country’s leading corporations like Nestle, Shell, Alliance Bank and PETRONAS were able to secure some of Sarawak’s finest to join their organisations.
Not only is there absolutely total access to some of Malaysia’s biggest corporations and institutions, the GRADUAN ASPIRE BORNEO 2015 will be one of the most integrated career fairs of all time in Sarawak. There will be over 20 corporations from all industries; including LAFARGE, NAIM, INTEL, PRESS METAL, BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCO and so many more. Seriously, such greatness is NOT TO BE MISSED!
Date : March 14, 2015 (Saturday)
