Sector Focused Career Fair [Career Awareness]

Finally, someone to help us optimize Malaysian talent! TalentCorp and UiTM held a Sector Focused Career Fair on career opportunities in shared services and outsourcing last week on the 12 - 13 November 2013 at Dewan Seri Budiman Universiti Teknologi Mara to facilitate awareness among the public of the career opportunities available in your choice of sectors under the 11 National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs). The event was officiated by YB Senator Dato' Sri Abdul Wahid bin Omar, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department. 

SFCF UiTM was a joint effort between TalentCorp, Graduan, MDeC and UiTM. The focus areas for the fair were Shared Services and Outsourcing (SSO). 

Dato' Sri Wahid shared his thoughts that "Malaysia's socio-economic development has to progress in a strategic and sustainable manner to achieve the vision of a transformed economy. Among the measures needed to achieve this is comprehensive planning through formulating effective policies, developing programmes through outcome based approach, strengthening human capital towards elevating efficiency and professionalism, and establishing organisational capacities for effective services delivery. Economic growth can be achieved through more efficient services delivery, and the different companies exhibiting at this career fair today are proof that the Shared Services and Outsourcing industry will be a key focus area to propel Malaysia forward."
According to Johan Mahmood Merican, CEO of TalentCorp, “The success of our Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) depends on having the right quantity and quality of talent, to support Malaysia’s priority sectors to move up the value chain and continue growing. Malaysia certainly has a strong pipeline of young talent. TalentCorp and UiTM are hosting this SFCF to provide exposure and attract our young Malaysian graduates to pursue an exciting career with the fast growing shared services sector. We certainly believe it is a win-win proposition – through a career in shared services, our young graduates will enjoy an international experience from right here in Malaysia and at the same time, our graduates can play their part in contributing to the success of the industry and Malaysia’s transformation."

SFCF UiTM is supported by more than 30 companies, including AIG, DHL, Electrolux, Frost & Sullivan, GlaxoSmithKline, HP, IBM, LaFarge, Sime Darby and PwC.
