Students filling in forms during last year’s fair.

MIRI: The 2019 Curtin Malaysia Internship and Placement Fair will be held at the campus this Sept 25 and 26.

Students and graduates of Curtin Malaysia, as well as students from other institutions and working adults looking to advance their careers will get to meet the representatives of 26 companies seeking to connect with job-seekers at the annual event.

Job-seekers would be able to find out more about the companies, career opportunities offered, internships, management programmes and placements of part-time and full-time jobs.

Those attending are advised to bring along their resumes, transcripts and other relevant documents for ease of on-the-spot job interviews.

Formerly known as the Curtin Malaysia Career Fair, it is organised by the Career and Alumni Services section of Curtin Malaysia’s Department of University Life. The fair will be open from 10am to 4pm on both days at the university’s Recreation & Event Centre (Heron 3). Admission is free.

The fair is one of the biggest and much-anticipated events in Curtin Malaysia’s yearly calendar of events, drawing from 20 to over 40 companies from both East and Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei each year. Over 900 job-seekers attended last year’s event and it is hoped that more will attend this year.

For job-seekers, it is a great opportunity to engage with a large assemblage of potential employers in one place, or simply to find out more about employment in various industries.

Meanwhile, for the participating companies, it is an opportunity to promote their companies to a wider market, in addition to attracting potential employees from Miri and other locations.
