There are many potential talents in Malaysia. However, a lot of them were left undiscovered due to the lack of opportunities to progress and soar in a specific career. To optimize the Malaysia talents as well as facilitating the awareness among the public regarding the career opportunities in priority sectors under the 11 National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs), Talent Corporation Malaysia Berhad (TalentCorp) has taken the strategy to host a Sector Focus Career Fair (SFCF) last week (12th November 2013) at University Teknologi Mara (UITM).

This event was officiated by YB Senator Dato’ Sri Abdul Wahid Bin Omar, Minister in the Prime Minister’s department and it was a joint effort between TalentCorp, Graduan, MDeC and UiTM. Shared Services and Outsourcing (SSO) was the main topic during the fair.

During the dialogue session at the SFCF, Dato’s Sri Wahid has shared his thoughts regarding Malaysia’s socioeconomic development. He voiced out that in order to achieve the vision of a transformed economy, measures need to be taken such as formulation of effective policies, development of programmes through outcome based approach, strengthening of efficiency and professionalism and establishment of organizational capacities for effective services delivery. The Shared Services and Outsourcing will be a “key” to move the economy of Malaysia forward.

On the other hand, CEO of TalentCorp,  Johan Mahmood Merican stated that the success of Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) is very dependent on having the right quantity and quality of talents. The SFCF was aimed to provide more exposure and attract the young yet talented Malaysian graduates to pursue the exciting career in the rapidly growing shared services sector. Shared services can bring along a “kill two birds with one stone” impact as it will not only allow young graduates to enjoy themselves in an international experience right here in Malaysia but also allow them to contribute to the success of the industry and Malaysia’s transformation.

More than 30 companies have supported the SFCF UiTM programme. Some of the notable companies include AIG, DHL, Electrolux, Frost & Sullivan, GlaxoSmithKline, HP, IBM, LaFarge, Sime Darby and PwC.

In addition, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Student Affairs of UiTM, Professor Dato’ Dr. Abdullah Mohammed Said has shared with the public regarding UiTM vision in establishing its reputation as a premier university of academic excellence. UiTM has the target to enhance the knowledge and expertise of talents in all fileds via their professional programmes, research work and community service programmes. Regarding this sector focused career fair, he stated that it has acted as a solid reference and resource for their students to discover critical industries such as SSO.

It is not often that the graduates can meet with CEOs and senior HR representatives of a few renowned companies. However, the SFCF has granted the graduates with this golden opportunity as well as providing a route for the companies to scout for potential talents from universities in Malaysia. The undergraduates were also able to learn more regarding the developing sectors in Malaysia while the companies were able to educate the public regarding industry developments, sectoral branding and ultimately, regarding SSO sector.

The two-day event has involved Career Talks and Couch Corner Slot. Both of these have allowed the younger generations to interact with the industry leaders and the companies under a comfortable atmosphere with informative inputs.
