KLMUC aims to produce globally competent, industry-relevant and quality graduates. Real World Practice which is offered as part of the programme requirements will expedite career growth and make them sought-after graduates.
The Careers and Partners (C&P) Unit’s main task is to increase the graduate employability for KLMUC graduates via strategic partnership with industry players and relevant programmes. C&P also provides the students with career counselling, guidance on job interviews, writing cover letters and resumes.
Graduate employability initiatives are summarised as per the chart below.
Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University College (KLMUC) has more than 80 registered internship companies, among which 12 are industry partners. This is to facilitate students’ access to internship placements in companies and fields relevant to their studies. It is mandatory on students to undertake internship for a minimum of 3 months (12 weeks).
The main objective of Student@Work is to help students earn pocket money while studying. Besides the immediate financial benefits, students are tipped to make strategic gains from this scheme. They will gain field experience that may add value to their curriculum vitae / resumés, boost their self-confidence and, hopefully, give them a workplace perspective of what they study currently and competitive edge in the labour market after they graduate.
Some of the benefits of doing Student@Work are:
PLATFORM ON JOB SEEKING OPPORTUNITES
C&P is dedicated in assisting graduating students by providing them with an effective platform for job seeking. Through our activities, graduating students are being equipped with the soft skills they require for their smooth transition to the labour market, and to perform effectively in their working life.
Therefore, KLMUC has built a platform for the students by establishing collaboration with GTi Media, Jobs Central and gradmalaysia.com to optimise the students’ employability according their field of study. We provide Jobsfeed powered by Jobscentral.com on KLMUC Website. Besides, C&P also collaborates with gradmalaysia.com on career advising for students in their pre-employment preparation
