The TMUC organizes the job fair every year for industry-academia linkages. “We believe that educational institutions should focus on the entire student journey; from being a student to being a professional. Our focus remains on getting future leaders ready for the employers, said Noorulain Zafer, head of TMUC Career Development Center. The job fair hosted a diversified assemblage of more than a hundred employers from corporate, legal, fashion, media, finance, IT, banking, and social sectors.

The TMUC is committed to creating opportunities that bridge the industry-academia gap so that Millennials gain first- hand knowledge of the practical utility of their academic qualifications and acquire skill sets necessary to excel in their respective professional endeavors.
