Miguel Chong

UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College

Being independent, having sharp presentation and public speaking skills and being able to make quick and right decisions are skills expected by all employers. All these were taught to me by UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College during my undergraduate studies.

As a Strategic Key Account Manager at Jobstreet.com, I have to work with a lot of employers and provide them insights into the workforce and employment market. UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College honed my communication skills very well even though I’m was a Computer Science student. I learned to be more social during the activities conducted by the clubs at UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College. These valuable skills help me handle employers. Studying in UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College not only equipped me with knowledge and skills but, I made a lot of friends here, and we remain in contact until now.

Occasionally, I give talks at universities and colleges to students about getting ready for their future job and the do’s and don’ts during the job interview. Working in Jobstreet.com, I have an opportunity to inspire youngsters to expose and explore the current industries expectation, just like what I was given by UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College during my studies.
