UUM ONLINE: As means to provide input on the possible venues for practicum and preparation for careers which students of Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) can pursue in the field of their choice, the Career Development Centre (CDC), Student Affairs Department organised a two-day UUM Career Fair 2018 at the Foyer of the Sultanah Bahiyah Library recently.
The carnival afforded UUM students who will graduate this November with the opportunity to look for job placements.
Amongst the agencies which participated at the carnival were The Agency Group, Graduan, Job Malaysia Kedah, Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Berhad (PUNB), Public Gold, The Recruiter Employment Agency, ASK Resources, Continental Tyre Malaysia, ViTrox Corporation Berhad and Public Mutual.
The UUM Career Fair 2018 received encouraging response from both UUM students and its future graduates.
According to a final year student Ms. Nurul Asyikin, the Career Fair proved to be very helpful to students especially to those in their final year.
"With the presence of the walk-in booths, students no longer worry about filling in their resumes wrongly as they get the much needed advice on matters regarding resumes from the representatives of the respective agencies," she said.
The launching ceremony of the UUM Career Fair 2018 was officiated by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Student Affairs and Alumni (HEPA), Prof. Dr. Abdul Malek Abdul Karim.
