SECOND-year Accounting & Finance student Chan Cal Vin was thrilled beyond words when one of the “Big Four” accounting firms at the recent Taylor’s Business School (TBS) Career & Employment Fair offered him an internship.
“My active involvement in student organisations and extra curricular activities may have contributed to my successful application to PricewaterhouseCoopers.
“I still can’t believe this actually happened as it has been my dream to work in the firm,” added the 19-year-old.
The one-day event was aimed at maximising students' employability.
It also allowed them to explore career options with leading corporations and develop their own network systems.
The event proved to be an eye-opener for students as they visited the booths of a range of companies such as the CIMB Group, Genting Bhd, Accenture, KPMG, Deloitte, MISC, Ernst & Young, Citibank, Nielsen, Job.DB.com, DiGi, OSK, GE, TIME and Manpower.
Among the other activities conducted during the event were career aptitude tests and career theme games.
Talks were also held on a number of topics. These included Dr Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.
