KDU University College kick-started the first phase of Career Enhancement Series on 26th January 2018. This series was organised to prepare students going for internship in May with opportunities for practical, hands-on learning through career series & workshops.

On this day, students were briefed on the internship flow, timeline, what was expected from them, and important documents that have to be handed in before and after their internship. Students had a better understanding on how internship works and all the important deadlines for forms and reports to be handed in to their lecturers.

It is an honour to have speakers from Graduan, the leading career resource for Malaysian talent - Ms. Kelly Kok Pei Jing and Ms. Sharina Baharuddin to conduct a series of Career Enhancement Workshop for interns-to-be.

Titled ‘Your Guide to a Successful Resume’ and ‘Interview Tips’, the workshop were well received by the students. The sessions were highly interactive, with guides and activities that reflect on why branding for one self is important for landing a job. The speakers also shared some experience in dos and don’ts in an interview based on their experience speaking to different employers and human resource personnel.

At the end of the session, both the speakers invited the students for resume review. Individualised comments and reviews were given to students based on the field that they are in. It is believed that in different field of work, there is a different approach of resume writing styles. The students appreciated the advice they’ve gotten, and are looking forward to starting their career in the next semester.
