It has always been the priority of the Department of Banking and Risk Management to place all our graduating students in related field for their internship. The objective is to create awareness in the industry that we are producing Bachelor of Banking graduates to serve the manpower needs especially in the banking industry. This year, Banking and Risk Management Department has brought in three banks namely CIMB Group, Malayan Banking Berhad and RHB Bank to conduct three separate sessions of interviews to recruit students for their internship programmes and graduate training schemes. By hosting these events, we hope to create a talent bridge between our graduates and their potential employers of the banking institutions.
On Wednesday, 14th May 2014, the Department of Banking and Risk Management was honoured to have Puan Khaireny Mohamad Khaild, Head, Infra Execution & Talent Deployment, Group Talent Sourcing and Development, Group Human Capital from Malayan Banking Berhad, at UUM. A sharing session was held at SEFB Seminar Hall in which Puan Khaireny shared her experience working at Maybank. Puan Khaireny also briefed students about the internship programmes and job opportunities available at Maybank such as Global Maybank Apprentice Programme and Branch Management Entry Level Pipeline. The session was attended by 87 students from various programmes with majority from Bachelor of Banking (BBank), Bachelor of Risk Management and Insurance (BRMI), Bachelor of Finance (BFin) and Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). At the end of the session, more than 30 students submitted their CVs to Puan Khaireny for her consideration to join Maybank internship programme.
On Friday, 16th May 2014, 18 students from BBank, BRMI and BFin were shortlisted for an interview with CIMB Group. The interview was conducted by Mr. Ezarul Suhaimi, Executive, Graduate Recruitment, Group Human Resource, CIMB Group. The shortlisted candidates were being interviewed for both the internship placement and graduate training scheme with the financial institutions within the CIMB Group.
Mr. Ezarul has shared some tips on interview, precisely the "Dos and Don'ts" while attending interview, during the Banking and Risk Management Seminar Series 2014 which was held a day earlier at UUM Convention Centre. About 250 students attended the Seminar.
On Monday, 26th May 2014, 30 students from BBank and BRMI were shortlisted for an interview with RHB Bank. The interview was conducted for its internship programme to be held from July 2014. The interview was headed by Ms Aishah Zaharuddin, Head, Talent Sourcing, Talent Acquisition and Manpower Planning, Group Human Resource, RHB Banking Group. The students were divided into two groups and the interview was held in two concurrent sessions. At the end of the interview session, Ms Aishah commended our BBank and BRMI students of their knowledge on banking and risk management. She has indicated that RHB would be supportive of UUM's activities and will collaborate with our department again in the future.
It is hoped that students have benefited tremendously from attending the seminar, briefing session and interview sessions with the three banks.
