Together Gather 2017
Followed by the launch of the Talent Ready Integrated Graduates Employability Smart System (TiGrESS) that took place at APU previously, we are pleased to share that APU is now on board to adopt the system, in which our students and alumni are able to interact with potential employers and companies.
The system, developed by ICONIX Consulting, is an integrated Triparty Graduate Employability Management Services platform. A MoU was signed earlier this month by Prof Ron Edwards, Vice-Chancellor, in conjunction with the Together Gather 2017 forum, that was organized by the Ministry of Higher Education to discuss problems and solutions in relation to employability. The ceremony was also witnessed by YB Datuk Dr Mary Yap Kain Ching (Deputy Minister of Higher Education), Norhizam Hadir (Vice President, Growth Ecosystem Development, MDEC) and Associate Prof Dr Arham Abdullah (Director, Industry Relation Division, Ministry of Higher Education).
In line with the implementation of the system, we look forward to seeing our students being exposed to the vast opportunities for jobs and internships in the market, through the system that encourages interaction and knowledge sharing, we hope that our students are able to benefit by being more well-equipped as graduates later on.
