Sector Focused Career Fair @ UiTM

[Sponsored Post]

Are you a fresh graduate looking for a job?
Are you unsure of which company would suit you the most?
Or are you someone in the workforce, unsatisfied with your current career, but don't know where to venture to?
Or a student, pondering over your career alternatives and pathways lies ahead of you?

If you answered "yes" to one of the question above, head on to Sector Focused Career Fair (SFCF)!

What is SFCF?

Basically, SFCF is an effort initiated by TalentCorp Malaysia to educate and spread the awareness on career opportunities among students and fresh graduates in Malaysia. SFCF acts as a great platform for visitors to discover their desired career path in depth.

I was really lucky to be invited by NuffnangMY to attend the recent SFCF which was strategically held at UiTM Shah Alam on the 12 & 13 of November. It was definitely an eye-opening experience which I'd like to share with you all here.

Various Talks and Forum were scheduled throughout the two days exhibition for the benefits of visitors. Unfortunately, I did not get to attend the talks as I had to catch the 12pm bus back home.

There were a total of 29 participating companies in Shared Services & Outsourcing sector exhibiting at SCFC on that two days. Here are the list of companies:

1. Affiliated Computer Services (ACS)
2. AIG Shared Services
3. Atos Origin Services
4. Averis Sdn Bhd
5. BASF Asia-Pacific Service Centre
6. Brandt International
7. BT Global Technology
8. Convergys Malaysia
9. Cuscapi Outsourcing
10. DHL Asia Pacific Shared Services
11. e2Power (OCBC Bank)
12. Frost & Sullivan GIC Malaysia
13. Getronics Technology
14. GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (GSK)
15. Hewlett-Packard Multimedia (HP)
16. Hilti Global IT Asian Compentence Centre

24. Miki Shared Services
25. Symphony BPO Solutions
26. WorleyParsons Business Services
27. Xchanging Malaysia
28. CPA Australia
29. ACCA
Each company has a booth set up inside Dewan Sri Budiman
Upon entering the hall, you'd have to register yourself. After registering, you'll be given complementary GRADUAN 2013 magazine!
After that, head on to the exhibition area! 
With such an array of companies at SCFC, job seekers will definitely be able to pick and choose their desired company that fits their needs and wants.

SFCF helps visitors to get to know their prospective company better , as visitors are given the opportunity to receive one-to-one consultation by senior personnel from the participating companies. Visitors can also exchange their point of view, as well as learn more about the real life working experience and what to expect in the workforce.

Some visitors were also seen sending in their resume on the spot. 
After enquiring , most companies tend to give out little freebies such as pens and notebooks too!
Talks schedule at the Couch Corner aka Beanie Corner! I really liked the concept of using bean bags as it makes visitors feel more "connected" to the speaker as it creates a relax & laid back atmosphere.
 And it also serves as a comfy resting spot when there is no talk going on!

Before you leave, flaunt your knowledge at TalentCorp's ICQ (Industry Career Quiz) booth! Visitors just have to answer questions using the iPad provided as fast as possible. The top scorer will walk away with a 16GB iPad!

This was a fruitful event indeed. Don't worry if you have missed out on this SCFC. The upcoming SCFC will be held on the 4th and 5th of December at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.

Subsequently, keep yourself updated for any upcoming SFCF by following their Facebook page or website!
