ARAU: Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) develops an e-Portfolio system to facilitate the final year students of the university to do a job search process soon after graduation.Its vice-chancellor, Prof Datuk Dr Zul Azhar Zahid Jamal, said the system developed in collaboration with the Center for Industry and Government Agencies (CIGC) and UniMAP's Information Technology Center (ICT) helped last year's students produce online resume (e-Resume) more comprehensive.

He said graduates now no longer have to spend money on finding jobs by wandering away without a clear direction especially in finding jobs."Students can log into the e-Portfolio and fill in the required personal information before the system produces resumes electronically or online."As soon as the resume is created, companies with UniMAP collaboration can log in e-Portfolio to view the resume before it is evaluated and to call the candidate for interview."The advantages are very much because the system is the best platform based on the demand and supply concept of students and companies in the industry," he said when met at the Carnival Launching Ceremony with the Northern Industrial Employment Convention (NICE 4) 2019 today.

Elaborating further, Zul Azhar said UniMAP does not charge any fees or payments to industry players or companies who want to log into the e-Portfolio system."To date, more than 3,000 UniMAP e-Resume students have been loaded into the e-Portfolio and 50 companies have already registered as job seekers."I believe the e-Portfolio will further facilitate the graduates' job placement process which will also increase the leverage rate of the graduates market within six months of graduation," he said. He said students could also make the system a platform to open up opportunities for students to look up their career before waiting for the convocation date or while undergoing industrial training.
