NOW into its third edition, the CIMB Talent Trail 2017 is a collaboration between CIMB Group and Talent Corporation Malaysia (TalentCorp). It requires active team participation from university students with the objective of helping them apply and hone skills valued by today’s employers.
A total of 60 teams from 29 universities were tested on not only their English language, interpersonal and communication skills, but teamwork and adaptability in facing challenges within a stipulated time frame.
Team C-E-O-S from Sunway University took home the RM5,000 top prize, while Team AD Victoriam from Advance Tertiary College and Team Millennium X from Tunku Abdul Rahman College won the second and third place respectively, each taking home RM3,000 and RM2,000.
CIMB Group Chief People Officer, Datuk Hamidah Naziadin said the talent trail is one of the group's many activities that help educate and prepare students to enhance their employability.
“The talent trail is an innovative programme that helps our young talents to enhance their employability and improve their transition into the workforce,” said TalentCorp CEO Shareen Shariza Abdul Ghani.
One of the activities this year was giving back to society where students were tasked to sell cookies to the public.
All proceeds go to Simply Cookies, a social enterprise that provides baking skills to single parents and their children.
