I would like to highlight an initiative by our government for fresh graduates – CODE8. CODE8 is an apprenticeship programme designed for people in the ICT area. Anyone who is interested should apply for it – particularly if you are having trouble finding a job. In fact, I highly recommend that you apply for this if you have yet to successfully find employment anywhere else.
The package is a really good one and since it is an apprenticeship, you will be provided with invaluable training in various areas. There will even be lessons to attend regularly – it will just be like school again! You will need to sign a short term contract but think of it as an extended internship except that you will be highly paid unlike interns.
And please help spread the word around. If you have friends who are fresh graduates, please ask them to apply for it too! This lucrative offer is not to be missed. I guarantee that you will never find anything like this anywhere else in 1Malaysia!
