PEMANDU and TalentCorp Information Session in Boston, NYC and Chicago

Thanks to Lenard for sharing this PEMANDU and TalentCorp session, which I believe 2 very passionate young Malaysians, Joyce Tagal and Atiqah would be there to share with you all!

Dear all,

Looking for a meaningful summer internship back in Malaysia?
Graduating but not sure what to do after graduation?

PEMANDU, a unit in the Prime Minister's Office, together with Talent Corporation, which was recently formed and announced by the Prime Minister, will conduct sessions targeting Malaysian students in the United States. The objectives of these sessions are to:

• Recruit high potential candidates to serve the Government through PEMANDU

• Promote new policies and initiatives by the Government especially the GTP and ETP

• Attract Malaysian talents back to reduce brain drain

Representatives from PEMANDU and TalentCorp will be here to answer questions about employment and policies which affect you (e.g. allowing government scholars to serve their bonds in the private sector). The session is open to all: students, professionals, and all other interested parties.

The PEMANDU Internship Program for Summer 2011 is now officially open for applications. We are looking for young, talented, high performing people looking for a rewarding, challenging internship this year for at least two months.
