What to do?! [adv]

October is graduation month in UM. I've had friends who are graduating soon or just graduated asking me what they can do for a career. As a Language and Linguistic student, there isn't too wide a range of career we can venture into, so everyone is panicking.
*pulls hair*

On one hand, I'm glad that my friends are actually planning to find a job, or are actively looking for a job; on the other hand, I have no idea how to answer that question. Since I'm not really working in the same industry, I can only give suggestions and not testimony. Even the suggestions are limited, since only 2 of the seniors I know went back to the "French root".

Honestly, there are a lot of career fairs out there that are meant to help students or newly unemployed people *cough*,
and one of them is Sector Focused Career Fair or SFCF by TalentCorp Malaysia. 

SFCF UiTM was supported by more than 30 companies including some big names like DHL, Electrolux, IBM, Sime Darby and PwC. 

It was held last weekend in UiTM, Shah Alam. Since last week was their convocation week, it was logical that the Sector Focused Career Fair  happened on the same weekend. 

There was more than 4,000 turnouts that day.

 There were career talks by professionals from priority sectors, career booths, dialogue sessions where attendees get to voice out their curiosity, and other helpful activities to help university graduates better build a career plan on the shared servicing sector. 

Since it's sector focused, it's easier for those who attended find out what sector they can venture into which is relevant to their respective fields of study. No more panicking because of job issues.

If you're not sure what to do after graduating, here's their Facebook page,
and follow the hashtag trail for all the info you need. 
They will be going to different universities so don't miss out!

That's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~
