As a soon-to-be fresh graduate, looking for your first job can be exhilarating. Yet, the reality many fresh graduates face when trying to get a foot in the door is that the real world is highly competitive, you often have a small window to make a great impression and you may not know where to start.
The Work Readiness Boot Camp is a proactive approach to exclusively support our graduating students in transition from a graduate to workplace professional in this competitive job market. Through this boot camp, various employer presentations, guidance sessions, professional development and hiring activities conducted are tailored to assist the students in conquering the real-world challenges, acquiring the essential skill sets which will not only make them industry ready but also prove to be beneficial in the long run.
Additionally, University of Nottingham Malaysia has partnered with Heriot-Watt University and Xiamen University to bring the industry experts from various industries to gather one roof to boost the students’ potential in a forum entitled “Upskill for Better Career Readiness”.
