Induction for New Students
Welcome to the Careers Advisory Service (CAS), University of Nottingham Malaysia!
CAS offers various support and services to support the students throughout their career development journey and guide them in identifying their strengths and interests, exploring suitable jobs and industries, and making decisions for their future career path.
From the beginning, we would advise the students to begin thinking about their career pathways starting from the first year itself. CAS uses a systematic Career Development Roadmap to help students acquire self-awareness, explore career path and get ready for the future world of work.
Our team of experienced careers advisers provides a comprehensive range of support and services that are geared towards empowering students, their careers and employability in following ways:
- Resume Review and Career Consultation - Our careers advisers provide one-to-one and virtual resume review, and career advice session to all UNM foundation students, undergraduates, postgraduates and alumni. This service requires a booked appointment lasting no more than 15 to 30 minutes.
- Careers Events and Employability Workshops - CAS ensures that the students have access to careers and networking opportunities with employers, gain insights from industry experts, and sharpen their employability skills by conducting a series of initiatives on-campus and virtually such as careers fair, pre-careers fair series, "Discovering Careers" sector-focused careers day, "Elevate Your Potential" recruitment talks, international students career series, alumni sharing - career journey, careers talks, on-campus/ virtual interviews, Nottingham Advantage Award (NAA) careers modules, and field trips.
