Talent Corp SFCF 2013

I was glad to be invited by Nuffnang with fellow Penang bloggers to attend Sector Focused Career Fairs (SFCF) which was held at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) last Sunday. Well, it was a two-day event organized by Talent Corporation Malaysia Berhad (TalentCorp) hosted by USM, together, to increase career awareness among the public on the 5th & 6th of October. 

In fact, I was quite looking forward to check out the fair as I'm an undergraduate too :D 

The exhibition was held at Dewan Utama Pelajar from 10am-6pm and there was a registration booth where we could get all those information pack and notebook.

We were guided by a friendly guy staff, who is one of the students of USM. He then did a quick briefing. We got to know that SFCF actually focuses more on Science, Healthcare and Social Sciences Sectors. Besides, the career fair provides a platform that directly connects companies to potential graduates through walk-in interviews.

32 companies participated in this event. The companies also have the opportunities to educate the public about industry developments, sectorial branding and increase understanding of niche areas for science, healthcare and social science sectors. The main objective of theirs non other than providing easy access to career paths for the fresh graduates in the respective fields .  

We roamed around and visited some booths. 

The most interesting and crowded booth was this ICQ Quiz. Why? Because the top scorer with the fastest answering speed and got the most corrected answers stands a chance to win an iPad away! The rule was to answer TEN questions and each question has to be answered correctly not more than 10 seconds.   

Trying my luck here! hehe.. And guess how much did I score? DENG! 6 out of 10. Haha! Not bad la ok. The questions were quite hard though:/

Serious faces of Camy and Constance concentrating on their quizzes 

Moving on, we left to the career talk held upstairs. 

And, we discovered the Couch Corner Slot! It was designed for the visitors, especially the students, to interact with the companies in a relaxed atmosphere. They could sit together and chat with the key persons from the industry casually.

No doubt, sitting and chatting at the bean bag is much more comfortable :D

Once again, thank you Nuffnang and TalentCorp for giving me this chance to attend such a beneficial event! It was a great get-together with the Penang bloggers too.
