THE Taylor’s University Career Services Centre (CSC) has brought home the “Best Career Development Centre (Private University)” award in the Malaysia’s 100 Leading Graduate Employers Awards Night 2016 for the third consecutive year.

Taylor’s University Student Experience Vice President Angela Pok shared her elation over this win, adding that this achievement could not have been possible without the support of industry partners.

“Our industry partners provided TalentCorp Malaysia with not only votes but also anecdotal evidence about how our career centre has been proactive in assisting the industry in meeting their talent needs.

“This award is strong testament of the level of trust, support and confidence from our employers and industry partners who worked very closely with us in developing and preparing our students in their journey from classroom to the boardroom.

“I would like to extend my appreciation for the CSC team who diligently provide our students with the best possible experience in terms of career opportunities,” she said.

This award was first introduced in 2014 as part of the Graduate Recruitment Awards category, which celebrates excellence in Malaysia’s graduate recruitment landscape and recognises the best graduate recruiters and exceptional career centres that make a difference in students’ career development, as voted by more than 200 of Malaysia’s leading graduate employers.

Taylor’s was the inaugural winner and has been winning this for the last three years.

The award, a recognition given by leading employers and industry partners, is to acknowledge the role that university’s career centre plays in building and executing effective industry-academia collaboration.

The award was presented by Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.

It was witnessed by Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk Dr Mary Yap, Higher Education Ministry deputy directors-general Datin Paduka Dr Siti Hamisah Tapsir and Prof Datuk Dr Roziah Omar.

The other finalists were INTI International University and Multimedia University.
