Our Deputy Prime Minister is encouraging students to get into internships so that it will be easier for them when they graduate as they will have some working knowledge which makes it easier for employers to hire them later on.
SHAH ALAM: Get real. Getting good academic results is not good enough if students want to get suitable jobs after graduation, said Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo.
While they are still in university, they should try to get some hands-on experience by offering to do their practical training or internship in reputable companies, he said.
“We have a lot of graduates with high academic qualifications but very little ‘real world’ experience for the job market.”
