With the clear direction to create pathways for KDU students to gradually transform and architect their passion into life-long careers, the Global Career & Placement Services Unit under KDU’s Student & Alumni Centre (SAC) recently organised its fourth corporate visit to the real world of established industries.

This time around, Maxis gladly opened their door to welcome 36 KDU students from various programmes, Business, Mass Communication and even Game Development. This visit took place last month at Maxis’ 49-storey (212 meter) skyscraper office in Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC).

The brief but compact half-day visit to Maxis Tower left KDU students in awe, and inspired them to start and carve their future career or internship with the biggest telecommunications company in Malaysia.

According to Ms. Anisha Sasheendran, the Head of Youth and HR Business Partner – People & Organisation for Maxis, Maxis welcomes all graduates and interns from all disciplines and backgrounds as this will help add diversity, knowledge-sharing, and to such a degree, will strengthen the company.

There were sharing sessions conducted by the current Maxis Management Associate Programme students from different institutions and programmes which helped KDU students understand and create a more fruitful Q & A session. Throughout the visit, the students learnt the growth and the career potentials in the telecommunications industry in Malaysia. They were also introduced to three MAXIS programmes targeted for youth to start their career with Maxis; Direct Hire, Internship, and Maxis Management Associate Programme.

The visit ended with a tour around the Maxis working space. Again, this had left students in admiration when they were exposed to the new ‘open space’ working concept and had the opportunity to see the company’s CEO’s working space.
