Preparing Ahead - APU Careers Centre Opens Door to Opportunities for Students

On Wednesday, 24 August 2016, the APU Careers Centre organised a Career Day at APU Campus @ TPM, to provide opportunities to current students who are seeking for job opportunities as well as internship placements. 

Over 30 companies took part in the career exhibition, including some renowned multinational companies such as DHL, Hewlett Packard (HP), Toshiba, HILTI and more. We were happy to see some of our alumni who returned to APU as representatives from their companies as well! For instance, we spotted Michelle Loh Yee Teng, who graduated in May 2016 from the BSc (Hons) in Information Technology (Business Information Systems) programme representing her current employer, HILTI Asia.


The Career Day is an ongoing initiative by the APU Careers Centre, in which it acts as a bridge between potential employers, students and alumni, to fulfill the demand of the current job market, as well as to ensure that our students remain highly employable through exposure to different internship opportunities and job openings.  

Joint Career Day with The Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Kuala Lumpur & Selangor (KLSCCCI)

The Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Kuala Lumpur & Selangor (KLSCCCI) organised a joint career day with APU Careers Centre & APIIT Corporate Training in APU Campus @ TPM recently.

The career day comprised a series of activities that exposed students towards potential internship and career opportunities, such as career exhibition, on-the-spot interview and career talks. There were 10 companies that participated in the exhibition, namely App Lab Sdn Bhd, Cornet Research Sdn Bhd, CALMS Technologies, CTApps MSC Sdn Bhd, MyKris Asia Sdn Bhd, iTrain (M) Sdn Bhd,, ServerWare Sdn Bhd and Masjaya Land Sdn Bhd.


The highlight of the event was a 1-hour career talk by KLSCCCI and its member companies. Over 200 students attended the talk, to gain an overview of KLSCCCI’s roles in the industry, as well as the job openings and internship opportunities available at its member companies. This time, KLSCCCI went further by introducing the association through a video presentation during the talk, and encouraged APU students and graduates to join the association to embark on an early entrepreneurship journey by networking with the association’s members. The talk was honoured by the presence of Lee Yew Chen, Chairman, ICT Division, Kuala Lumpur & Selangor Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KLSCCCI) alongside Gurpardeep Singh, Vice President, Operations.

Through this joint effort, let’s look forward to fostering a better relationship among both parties, to provide more career and internship opportunities for our students.

APU Careers Day - June 2015

A Career Day which involved over 40 local and international corporations took place on the 23rd of June and the 25th of June at APU Campus, TPM and Faculty of Business & Management (FBM), Mines respectively. The event that was organised by APU Careers Centre saw participation of prestigious companies, such as Alliance Bank, Top Glove, Mediasoft, Public Bank, Fusionex, Sony EMCS and more.

The main objective of the event was to provide APU students with the opportunities to participate in on-the-spot interviews with potential employers, which is essential for them to secure internship and career opportunities in the respective companies. Apart from the exhibition booths, career talks also took place in the classrooms; in which students were given the opportunities to understand more about the companies’ background, as well as to be exposed to the academic requirements, personalities and traits needed to secure a job in the respective companies.

It was a great effort being put in by APU Careers Centre in organising the career days; we look forward for more events of such nature, which are beneficial for all current APU students in terms of increasing their employability and enhancing their professionalism.
