INTRODUCTION TO K2C
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to present our unique project that will help to set a career pathway for the youth of today. We are excited to present our plans for KEY2CAREER 2020, an interactive career fair which serves as a medium for both corporate companies and young graduates to meet and establish a connection as employer and employee.
This event, which would be held tentatively on the 1st of April 2020 at University of Malaya from 9am to 10pm, is inspired by the “Malaysians@Work” initiative that was presented in the recently announced Budget 2020. This works in conjunction with the federal government’s effort to tackle the nation’s high rate of youth unemployment.
The Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng when tabling Budget 2020, said that the government will create the #MalaysiaKerja program which is expected to create as many as 350,000 jobs over five years in order to reduce the high number of foreign workers in Malaysia.
This project stands out particularly as there will be an open stage set specially for undergraduates to grab the mic and promote themselves to their future employees. A targeted demography of young graduates hailing from all over the nation provides the perfect opportunity for corporate companies to employ talented individuals and drive their organization towards greater success.
To reduce high unemployment rates.
In compliance with this objective, we have tabled this project as a means to assist the youth in finding their desired career pathway. With this, we hope to contribute to the nation’s effort in reducing the already sky-high unemployment rate, particularly that of the youth’s.
As our project mainly targets young graduates, advertisements via social media such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter are used to reach the targeted group of people.
Other than that, mail promotion through SISWAMAIL (UM student mail) is being done in order to attract University of Malaya alumni and students to our event.
Invitation letters are also being sent to both public and private universities such as Taylor’s University, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and Universiti Putra Malaysia to attract graduates from outside of University of Malaya.
