Dear School Leavers and Parents,
I am Ben, the Founder & CEO of Talentbank, award-winning recruitment, employer branding, market research, and education company based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
As someone who was impacted by a lack of direction and guidance back when I was a graduate looking for employment, I understood first hand the problem Malaysia faced when it comes to graduate employability. In fact, till today, the mismatch between employers’ high expectations and graduates’ skills is still an ongoing issue that plagues Malaysian graduates’ employability.
In 2011, instead of waiting for a solution, I decided to be the change and have been involved in the graduate recruitment industry since. With that objective in mind, Talentbank was born. Having had the opportunities to work with over 100+ universities, 6,000+ multinational graduate employers across the country, and important stakeholders such as the Ministry of Education, Talentbank has touched the lives of over 500,000 graduates.
“National Graduate Employability Index” is an extension of this dream. My ultimate aim is to provide school leavers and parents with an unbiased guide on the top considerations in selecting a University to enroll in to maximize the chances of employment upon graduation, information, and insights that were previously not available to many, including myself. Besides university selection, our data also allows us to drill into the types of courses and degrees that are in high demand from the perspectives of graduate employers.
I hope you will find this journey of mine useful.
Founder & CEO, Talentbank
