BUSINESS students from Taylor's Business School (TBS) were recently treated to a “Jobstreet Campus Roadshow” organised by Jobstreet.com to recruit potential graduates for the job market.
The roadshow was organised in anticipation of the Malaysia Career and Training Fair which will be held at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre next month.
Events for the roadshow, jointly organised by TBS Aiesec Club and Jobstreet.com, also saw the participation of prominent companies such as Maxis, Hong Leong Bank, Celcom, PriceSolutions and HSBC.
HSBC presented a career talk and conducted on-the-spot job interviews for graduating students from the University of Technology, Sydney, business degree programme, while other students walked away with free gifts from sponsors, such as Wrigley's Cool Air Chewing Gum and Jobstreet.com Career Guide.
TBS Career Resource Centre will be organising its second Career and Employment Fair for its students by the end of the year.
Said TBS Career and Education Counsellor Alicia Ch'ng: “We hope that through this event, our students would be able to receive assistance and advice in a wide range of areas relating to their career interests.”
Over the past year, the centre has also organised seminars, workshops, industrial fields trips, internships, job placements and recruitment drives for its students.
Sharing and caring
TBS's Circle K Club launched its first charity event for the year by visiting Rumah Amal Cahaya Tengku Ampuan Rahimah (Ractar).
About 30 students involved in the “Sharing and Caring Project” had earlier organised a three-day fund-raising drive to collect donations for the orphanage.
Circle K Club president Aldy Adrian Andrew said: “We have identified a few organisations that are in need of help and have decided to start off this community project with Ractar which currently houses 59 children ranging from five to 20 years old.”
Through the funds collected, the club has bought basic necessities such as soap, detergent, washing powder, toothpaste, shoe whitener and food for the children.
“These items are vital for the children's daily lives,” said Aldy. “We have also collected second-hand goods for the children, such as curtains and clothes.”
The children were treated to a meal by TBS students, taught to make bookmarks and collages in an art and craft session, and awarded prizes for the best artwork designs.
Acting as big brothers and sisters, Circle K Club members also gave the children a motivational talk to encourage them to study hard and explained the route to higher education to those in secondary school.
Formed in 2001, Circle K Club aims to create passion for community service.
TBS students will hold a Young Entrepreneur Charity Bazaar on April 15 at Wisma Subang Jaya from 9am to 3pm. A variety of activities will be conducted, while proceeds from the sale of goods will go to the Good Samaritan Home for charity. For enquiries, call 03-5637 1150.
