KUALA LUMPUR: Thousands of jobseekers, students and school leavers thronged the myStarJob Fair 2022 and the Star Education Fair 2022 held at the Pavilion Bukit Jalil Exhibition Centre on Saturday (June 25).
Crowds of people formed queues outside the event halls before doors opened at 11am; all eager to hunt for career options and education opportunities on offer at the two-day event.
The myStar Job Fair 2022 and the Star Education Fair 2022 are held side-by-side at the exhibition centre, allowing visitors to conveniently check out what is offered at both events.
Khairul Adlan, 49, arrived around 10am and was first in line in a queue of visitors to myStar Job Fair 2022.
The jobseeker from Shah Alam visited several of the 44 booths at the career fair, and was even able to secure a walk-in interview with one of the companies there.
“I have been unemployed for about seven months now. So when I found out about myStar Job Fair from social media, I decided to register online and join. It is also free of charge!” said Khairul, who was looking for employment opportunities in customer service.
As one of the 300 early bird visitors, Khairul received a treat in the form of an RM10 cash voucher for a meal at Restaurant Grandmama, located at Pavilion Bukit Jalil.
The myStarjob Fair is an all-in-one hiring solution curated specifically for both employers and jobseekers.
Featuring leading employers under one roof, the fair is an avenue to provide an opportunity for jobseekers to discover the best job whilst at the same time assisting exhibitors in building up their employer brand.
There are 33 companies participating in the career fair representing the industries of Oil & Gas Services & Equipment, Financial Services, Hospitality, Food & Beverages, Retails, e-Commerce, Information and Communication Technology and many more.
The fair consists of three main sponsor categories, which are the Title Sponsor by Malaysia Petroleum Resources Corporation (MPRC) with 12 booths, Diamond Sponsor by Great Pyramid with six booths and Platinum Sponsor by MYNext (by TalentCorp) with four booths.
In addition, Star Media Group Berhad is also on the lookout for talents with over 20 job vacancies up for grabs.
Meanwhile at the Star Education Fair 2022, it is scholarships and rebates galore.
School leavers who are at crossroads on what course to pursue and are looking for financial aid to ease their tertiary education burden can “shop” for choices at the fair.
Jobseekers at the fair were given tips on how to boost their employability by Tejvinder Singh, who is the managing consultant of Great Pyramid; a leading one-stop human resources service company.
Tejvinder is one of many industry figures slated to give interesting talks on career and education over the weekend.
Participants can also win many exciting prizes from contests organised throughout the two-day event.
