GRADUAN ASPIRE Career & Postgraduate Fair 2016 @ KLCC

I was in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur last weekend when I bumped into one of the coolest and most creative flashmobs I have ever seen at the main entrance of the mall. Then it came to my knowledge that the dancing mob was a teaser done by the  GRADUAN® team in conjunction to the upcoming GRADUAN ASPIRE Career & Postgraduate Fair 2016.

If you haven't heard of this, GRADUAN® ASPIRE 2016 is the nation’s most exciting career networking event with over a hundred of employers and universities making their presence in this prestigious event. I was there for GRADUAN ASPIRE Career & Postgraduate Fair 2015, feel free to read more about my experience there.

I saw the large crowd was gathering around the entrance, with cameras coming from every angle. Thumbs up to Alam Wakaka and Alamak Dance Trooperz as well as the GRADUAN® ambassadors for the hard work! 

Here's the full video of the flashmob that you should check out!

Being the 6th installment of the career fair, GRADUAN® ASPIRE returns in a bigger scale this year. Themed “Fly High,” this year’s exhibitors include Maybank, Celcom Axiata, UEM Group, Malaysia Airlines, Dell, Exxonmobil and Nestle, as well as the International Islamic University Malaysia, Taylor’s University, Curtin University, Multimedia University, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, University of Malaya and many more.

In fact, it is more than just a career fair. It also features an interesting array of activities which will help you keep up with the changes in career trends in Malaysia such as ASPIRE+, ASPIRE500 Conference, ASPIRE Lounge, Agents Race, contests and lucky draws.

Pn Elia Talib, Managing Director of GRADUAN® always believe in providing the opportunity for employers to understand what talents think of their presence, and bring them closer to one another. This is why every year GRADUAN® incorporates new elements that are relevant to fresh grads and professional job seekers.

The exclusive ASPIRE+ Corporate Luncheon made its debut last year, where I was honoured to be able to meet over 200 hand-picked working professionals (min. 3 years experience) and mingle around with 30 leading CEOs and corporate senior management in this invite-only event.

This year, some of the top CEOs who will be there are Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Group CEO of AirAsia; Sridharan Nair, Managing Partner of PwC Malaysia; Benyamin Bin Ismail, CEO of AirAsia X; Badlisyah Abdul Ghani, President of Chartered Institute of Islamic Finance Professionals; Mukhtar Hussain, CEO of HSBC Bank Malaysia Bhd; and many more.

Indeed it was an amazing experience to gain exclusive insights in accelerating my careers by understanding how to stay relevant in the current market with the changing of economic landscape. If you have the chance, don't hesitate to join them this year! 

Apart from that, the Favourite ASPIRE 500 Conference is another highlight of the 2-day career fair, where 500 talents from universities and colleges annually seize the opportunity to be inspired by top Malaysian icons.

This year's conference panel includes Nazrin Hassan, CEO of Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd; Leon Foong, General Manager of Uber Malaysia Sdn Bhd; Goh Ai Ching, Founder of Piktochart; and Ashran Dato’ Ghazi, CEO of The Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre (MAGIC).

They will share their experience and expertise in order to shape Malaysian talent into a more advanced and productive workforce in “The Digital Age”.

GRADUAN® ASPIRE 2016 will be opened to the public on 28 and 29 May 2016,
from 11am to 6pm at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. Don't forget to mark the date!
