KUALA LUMPUR: Graduates from the Financial Sector Talent Enrichment Programme (FSTEP) performed distinctly better and met the needs of the employers, said its head Lee Khee Joo.
He said a study, commissioned by FSTEP to assess the performance of its graduates from Batch 4, 5 and 6 at their workplaces compared with graduates directly recruited by the respective financial institutions, showed that the employers preferred FSTEP graduates. He said the FSTEP programme was effective in preparing entry-level executives for their working lives in the financial services industry by inculcating good working attitudes, behaviour and related soft skills.
“The employers have unanimously agreed that they are satisfied with FSTEP graduates as not even one employer had indicated otherwise in the survey,” he told Bernama here yesterday. - Bernama
