Career Exhibition 2011
In the early morning of 22nd February 2011, throngs of students filled in the Conference Room hall in IIUM’s Cultural Activity Centre eager and anxious to find out what the working world has in store for them. The IIUM Career Exhibition 2011 was officiated by Y. Bhg. Prof. Dato' Sri Dr. Syed Arabi Idid, Rector of IIUM on 23rd February 2011. It was 9am but the atmosphere was less than quiet, it was a calling of future for these students as thousands of questions were fired and replied answers can be heard from all sorts of direction.

There were 15 participating companies promoting their brands such as SHELL, PROTON, CIMB Group, PERODUA, Ambank Group, UMW Group of Companies, MMC Corporation Berhad, SCICOM etc and Biz Connexion Sdn Bhd just can’t miss the opportunity to be a part of this career fair. Hundreds copies of GRADUAN, POSTgraduan and Careers in the Capital Market were handed out to the keen graduates which saw them impatiently flipping through the guidebook and holding on to them as if it was their only life-line. :)

There were also opportunities for the students to talk to potential employers regarding the current job market and at the same time surveying available job prospects. The event which lasted for 3 days saw exhibition booths by participating companies providing valuable career-wise information along with a walk-in-interviews held by certain participating companies. For those who aren’t sure of their career destinations, a career clinic was held in order to help job seekers in identifying their career interest and also job-related personality types.

It was all good fun when GRADUAN met with the job-hungry faces, knowing that we have indeed provide all the details, tips, tools and advice essential for the students in handling future job applications and interviews.

Sooooo, for those in USM, come and meet us on the 4th – 6th of March where your career future is only a ‘book’ away. ;p
