KOTA KINABALU: Graduates need to find job opportunities with the skills they have acquired without relying on assistance or job offers.
The advise is in line with the government’s recommendations for graduates to set up their own business to generate income.
According to the state Minister of Resource Development and IT Technology, Datuk Siringan Gubat, the graduates need to practice integrity, responsibility, and honesty in their selected profession.
“What is important is the desire to pursue their dreams. It is not wrong to dream (for something better), but it must be made into a reality for a purposeful life,” he said in his speech during the presentation of ILPT end of training certificates for 2015/1 session.
Also present were Sabah JPSM Director, Billy Yumbod, and the Permanent Secretary of the State Ministry of Resource Development and IT Technology, Datuk Bruno Vun.
In the event, Siringan also presented certificates to 51 trainees who have completed their trainings under the Makeup and Hair-styling programme, and Welding Technology programme.
Meanwhile, Makeup and Hair-styling trainees, Katelynnade Sitanis from Kota Marudu, and Nur Ainina Abdullah (Kota Kinabalu), and Welding Technology trainee, Edmund Gotuoh, received the Best Trainee Certificate.
For graduates who are yet to be employed, Siringan advises them not to give up and to find other alternatives that may be different from their skills acquired from ILTP. – SayangSabah
