Job Matching PTPTN has been launched to help both job seekers and industry employers. Job Matching is a collaborative initiative between Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN) and Prestariang Berhad to directly benefit PTPTN borrowers seeking jobs or greater opportunities to elevate their employment value. Phase 1 of the collaboration will begin with Job Matching as the pilot programme targeted at up-skilling and re-skilling of current PTPTN borrowers. This programme will launch the PTPTN borrowers to the job markets through a ‘Place & Train’ model. The ‘Place & Train’ model will include job matching to industry requirements through talent profiling and a series of soft skills and communications training.
PTPTN borrowers can apply to be part of the Job Matching programme through www.jobmatchingptptn.my. “Job Matching is the first of its kind where our existing borrowers will first be provided with a job that matches to industry requirements through a stringent talent profiling and thereafter training to enhance their potentials and employability. This will provide immediate job opportunities to seekers and vice versa, provide immediate suited talents to the employment market. This will set to increase employment rate and boost the country’s economy,” said Chairman of PTPTN, Dato’ Dr Shamsul Anuar Hj Nasarah.
“Prestariang will host Job Matching under our end to end student digital engagement platform, Educloud”, said the President and Group Chief Executive Officer of Prestariang, Dr. Abu Hasan Ismail.
