Exposure to latest technology in industry, UMP alumni preferred by employers

PEKAN, 12 July 2021 - Students must always be flexible and ready to learn something new, especially facing the new norms of the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Muhammad Qusyairi Hashim, 30, an alumnus of the Faculty of Industrial Sciences and Technology (FSTI), Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP), he was lucky to have the opportunity to study and graduate from UMP.

“UMP graduates are the choice of employers because of the combination of curriculum and practical skills.

“Besides that, students are also exposed to the latest technology used in most industries,” he said, who is currently a consultant for Management and Risk Consulting at KPMG Malaysia.

He is indebted to the university and lecturers in shaping and training UMP students before stepping into the working world.

This Penangite previously worked at PWC Malaysia for five years before joining KPMG Malaysia.

KPMG Malaysia is a firm that offers professional services such as audit, tax and advisory in 146 countries and has 8 branches throughout Malaysia.

He added that he has many memories during his tenure as a management and risk consultant.

“One of the most memorable was being able to deal with clients in Mecca.

“At that time, my office was only within 300 meters from the Kaaba.

“Alhamdulillah, that was the most precious memory for me.

“Not everyone can have it, and for that, I am grateful for all the effort and hard work over the years,” he said.
Muhammad Qusyairi, who is the second child of three siblings, also shared his campus experiences when he was also active in co-curriculum and was the winner of the Gender Debate (2011 and 2012), KDYMM Sultan Zainal Abidin Debate runner-up (2011) and Peace Debate runner-up (2012).
