IF you are planning to study in New Zealand, did you know you could be given a one-year post study work visa upon graduation?

Come listen to Kiwi Studies and Migration Advisory student consultant Lau Chin Wee who will speak on opportunities in New Zealand from 3.15pm to 4pm at the Star Education Fair 2016 today.

“Many people may not be aware that graduates with New Zealand qualification are given a one-year post study work visa upon graduation,’’ he said.

He added that if they manage to find a job relevant to their qualifications within the duration of their post study work visa (Open), they will automatically be entitled to a post study work visa (employer assisted).

There are a whole range of talks to attend today, from Psychology - career of the future, Quantity surveying: nurturing construction professionals for digital revolution in the construction industry?, Career pathways with a law degree, Loan from PTPTN, Other Interesting Careers, Study and Work Overseas, and Engineering — at the stage area of Hall Four at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (see table).

Are you fascinated by the many celebrity chefs and cooking shows on TV and thinking of taking the same path?

Come listen to Sunway Le Cordon Bleu general manager Ming Rathswohl Ho speak on what it takes to be a global chef.

“Becoming a global chef is not an easy thing to do but as long as you are passionate about food, it is possible for those who put their minds to it,” she said.

Unitar Faculty of Architecture and Design lecturer Mohd Hafidz Rodzi said people may not be aware that possessing an art and design degree and portfolio is something of value.

“Malaysian designers are actually in demand overseas as they are able to provide fresh perspectives in regards to designing with a Southeast Asian twist,” he said. He will speak on “Prospects for Careers in Architecture and Design”.

First City University College Faculty of Design and Built Environment senior lecturer Arthur Liaw Ik Han will speak on “Graphic Design: Overview of Career Pathway”.

The automotive industry in Malaysia is “misunderstood” due to the many wrong perceptions about it, said TOC Automotive College founder and chief executive officer Adelaine Foo.

She said it was wrong to think that the automotive industry was occupied by low-salaried and unskilled male workers.

“Female workers in the industry get higher salaries than their male counterparts,” she said.

Meanwhile, University Malaysia of Computer Science and Engineering vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Khairuddin Ab Hamid said many people were unaware that Information and Communications Technology (ICT) was a relevant field of study which offered great career prospects.

University of Southampton Malaysia Campus School of Electronics and Computer Science lecturer Lee Sze Sing will focus on emerging technologies and the importance of electrical and electronics engineering in a talk on “Electrical and Electronics for Renewable and Sustainable Future”.
