Talentbank Digital Career Festival - Tutorial: How to apply for a job

For Employers

It is a virtual career fair where employers and job seekers meet in a virtual environment, using chat rooms, teleconferencing, webinars and/or email to exchange information about job openings.

We are primarily targeting candidates who are graduates and/or in their final year of study from both public and private universities across Malaysia through our partnership with Universities. We are also open to the public, which includes working professionals and job seekers who have graduated more than a year, specifically between the ages of 20 to 24 years old.

Talentbank Digital Career Festival is supported by the Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia, Jabatan Pendidikan Tinggi, MDEC and Career Development Centre Club Malaysia. Sponsors were being shown on our front page as well.

We are based in Malaysia, hence the target audience will be mostly malaysian students, locally based. However, this is not a limitation. Since it is a virtual platform, those who are studying abroad are able to  create an account to seek a career opportunity back home.

All you need is a working desktop computer, laptop or any smart devices with webcam, microphone and an access to internet. Chrome or Firefox browser are recommended.

The main reason for this initiative is due to the COVID-19 situation which has put all Career Fairs, including ours, on hold affecting both sides of the recruitment process. Thus, we proposed an alternative solution that may cater to your recruitment needs. Both employers who are looking for candidates and job seekers who are unemployed will now be able to browse and search within the safety and comforts of their home whilst practising safe social distancing.

We use social media ads to target job seekers to suit your needs.
