KUALA LUMPUR, 25th FEBRUARY – The CIMB Talent Trail was concluded with its grand finale challenge took place at Menara Bumiputra-Commerce on 25th February 2017. Two groups from Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN), namely Robust Acuity and Viral made the university proud by winning 8th and 23rd place respectively.
The CIMB Talent Trail is an annual outdoor event in collaboration with Talent Corporation Malaysia (TalentCorp) and CIMB Group. Together with CIMB Fusion Partners – Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC), Teach for Malaysia, ZICOlaw and Accenture, CIMB Talent Trail aims to not only enhance employability skills among university students, but also to test their readiness to transition from the academic world to the corporate world.
Robust Acuity of UNITEN Putrajaya Campus walked away with RM1000 cash prize while Viral of UNITEN Muadzam Shah Campus walked away with RM 300 cash prize. Besides, UNITEN was also awarded the Special Award for Most Number of Entries with a certificate and a Sharp 50” Full HD Android TV worth RM 3600, where most applications of the UNITEN teams hail from UNITEN Muadzam Shah Campus.
“All it took us to get through these stages are the know-hows of employability skills, which are required in every organization, but the most important of all is the values upon yourself. I strongly encourage students to be active in student activities regardless of whether it is organised on- or off-campus as such events will constantly make you learn and thus, pushing your boundaries.” said the group member of Robust Acuity, James Choi Zhen Hang.
NADi UNITEN would like to express our heartiest congratulations to both winning teams and the other UNITEN participants for your outstanding achievement. We wish you all the best for your future endeavours and may you make us proud again in the event’s next installation!
