“We have engaged with CAS through career talks, Careers Fair, on-campus events and internship postings. We have found the workshops to be the most engaging in terms of our branding on campus, and the students were attentive as well. UNM students are a priority for Teach for Malaysia as UNM students consistently receive the highest number of offers from us compared to other private universities students, which is a good testament to their quality. We always look forward to the Careers Fair and other events at UNM due to the quality of students and intend to keep coming again!”
- Roshinee Mookaiah, Talent Acquisition Associate, Teach for Malaysia (TFM)
“Dyson invests heavily on its technology and talents. The strong ties that we have built with local universities over the past decade have given us an ample supply of high-quality graduates and UNM played a pivotal role. We have hired more than 10 Engineering Graduates from UNM since 2012 (>70% have postgraduate degrees) and the number just keeps rising year after year. This reflects the employability and quality of Nottingham Malaysia graduates.”

There are many ways we can work together to help you hire our students:
Employer recruitment presentations – You can give a presentation on the overview of your company, career opportunities and the application process. A one- to two-hour ‘careers talk’ in our conference room or other lecture rooms will give you a chance to speak to our students directly and obtain a business benefit, at no cost. We are open to developing innovative activities for you to raise company brand awareness on our campus. In the past, we customised speed networking sessions, roadshows, field trips and sector-focused careers days to fit employer requirements.
Careers Fair – The careers fair is held annually in March with over 2,000 attendees that comprises students and graduates. It takes place in our Great Hall and presents a chance for local, national and international organisations to attract our students from diverse disciplines and highlight the graduate and internship schemes on offer.
On-campus interviews – Looking to recruit graduates with international work exposure or students from other countries for your company? We can provide the interview rooms as well as registration support for your selection process. Kindly contact us at email@example.com to discuss availability, capacity, refreshments and venue options, dependent on your requirements.
Experienced hires – We can support your initiative to reach out to our pool of talented postgraduate students - Masters degree or PhD programmes - including our alumni network with whom we still keep in touch with for employment support.
Job posting – We are happy to assist you in posting up any work opportunities in your company on our Facebook page, office bulletin board, e-newsletter and e-job bulletin. Additionally, kindly refer to the UNM Vacancy Handling Policy for Employers before the job submission to us.

Hiring international students
Our international enrolment has welcomed students from over 75 different countries, with most of the students already obtained degrees from institutions in their home countries.
Some have even brought with them a great deal of professional work experience and adaptability competency, which can be a huge advantage to your organisation.
These highly qualified talents are now able to work in Malaysia by having the Employment Pass Category III, a new classification of employment pass implemented by Ministry of Home Affairs Malaysia.
We encourage students’ participation in work placements to ensure they have a full-rounded experience whilst studying.
We work in partnership with graduate recruiters to promote work placements that will expose our students to learning tangible skill sets in areas such as public relations, finance and career planning.
At present, our Engineering (MEng) and Biomedical Sciences students are required to engage in a credit-bearing internship or project to complete their programme while other schools highly encourage their students to spend their summer working in a community or in a professional setting outside the University, starting the first week of June until September.
If you can offer internships, be sure to get in touch with us at email@example.com with a clear policy detailing the learning outcomes and finance considerations you can provide.
