Aspire to Achieve Greatness

In the final┬ádays of high school over 15 years ago (gasp!) and with the dreaded SPM results looming (yes I know it sounds like forever ago), I harbored a small (& wishful) thought of maybe, just maybe and a little bit of you-never-know attitude of going to┬áPratt Institute in New York to study something in design (but i couldn’t draw to save my life). Yeappp, I had some mighty big dreams.

Needless to say, once reality hit (in the form of the parental (s) saying no way no how) so I chose to explore options. I picked a local college; with the provision it would be an ‘arty’ school and proceeded to bury myself in the world of┬áMass Communication focusing on Film&TV. Many years later, after a stint overseas and back again I finally figured out what I want to do for the rest of my life; and it has almost nothing to do with Film or TV… wish someone could have pointed it out once I finished local college..

These days┬ánot only do you still have uni / college fairs or roadshow to attend; there are┬ácareer and networking fairs to help you kick-start your future in the corporate world.┬áThe one and only┬á#graduanaspire is a┬áhighly anticipated career and networking fair; first conducted in Kuala Lumpur in 2011. When the whole idea of career networking began to take flight, GRADUAN ASPIRE extended its reach to East Malaysia┬á(specifically Sarawak)┬álast year. Its debut in Kuching saw more than 5,000┬áyoung ‘uns┬álearning of the opportunities available to them, and taking into account some of the country’s leading corporations┬álike┬áNestle, Shell, Alliance Bank and PETRONAS were able to secure some of Sarawak’s finest to join their organisations.

Not only is there absolutely total┬áaccess to some of Malaysia’s biggest corporations and institutions, the GRADUAN ASPIRE BORNEO 2015 will be one of the┬ámost integrated┬ácareer fairs of all time┬áin Sarawak. There will be over 20 corporations from all industries; including LAFARGE, NAIM, INTEL, PRESS METAL, BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCO and so many more.┬áSeriously, such greatness is NOT TO BE MISSED!
