Recruiters thrilled as myStarJob Fair allows closer interaction with jobseekers


KUALA LUMPUR: Recruiters from top companies in the country were elated to be able to find top talents during the myStarJob Fair 2022 held at the Pavilion Bukit Jalil Exhibition Centre here on Sunday (June 26).

ExxonMobil human resources, talent acquisitions (Malaysia/Singapore) manager Azatul Amery Ismail said being able to be part of the myStarJob Fair was a great experience.

He said it presented them a better opportunity to meet candidates.

"When you meet face to face, we are able to assess them in terms of their capabilities, appearance and explain further the job scope.

"During this fair, we are looking for engineering, commercial and internship candidates.

"There are about 50 positions we need to fill," he said.

Air Selangor manpower planning & recruitment unit human resources & administrative department assistant vice-president II Abdul Khaliq Putra Abdul Rahman Putra said they are looking to fill some 200 positions from non-executives to executives and top management.

"We want to meet people live to get a sense of their body language, their vibes and see if they have the chemistry to join our company. We are not just looking at their skillset but also their personality.

"The crowd has been great thanks to the marketing for myStarJob Fair.

"We also want to gauge market experience, although the economy is slow it is getting better," he said.

AIA Bhd sales force planning manager Wayne Yap said as the company is actively looking for sales people, the fair provided a great way to convince those for the job.

"Even though this is our first time, this fair is a good platform, and we look forward to participating at more physical fairs in the second part of the year.

"Although we are looking for sales people, if we see other potential candidates, we can always recommend them to the company," he said, adding that they are looking for fresh and experienced candidates.

Shopper 360 Ltd group chairman Chew Sue Ann said this was their first time participating in a career fair.

Previously, she said the company had used social media and recruitment companies or referrals.

"We also realise a fair like this is good to expose our company from a visible stand point and since it is held together with the Star Education Fair 2022, they come with older siblings looking for jobs, so it is good to marry both.

"We all know the last two years have caused disruption to the talent workforce, called the great resignation. So many have been doing odd jobs to survive, running a small business at home or doing food deliveries.

"Companies are struggling to find permanent talents as a lot of people are used to doing ad hoc work. So we felt it was important for people to know that our companies have a lot of roles as we also outsource and place people for growing consumer electronic companies," she said.

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 F&B companies that are participating include Komugi, Shangri La Group, Platform Hospitality Group Sdn Bhd and Gema Naga Sdn Bhd ( Chef Wan Group of Companies).
