|George Town, 29 January 2018 – The first ‘external hurdle’ students often face is getting a successful internship with an established company.|
A good internship can be challenging, rewarding and enlightening, but being accepted by a good company can be difficult, so the Career and Placement Centre of KDU Penang University College (KDU Penang) recently organised another impactful workshop, “Preparing For A Successful Interview”, on 26th January 2018.
