Gillette has partnered with Malaysian Youth Community’s job portal, ‘Projek Berdikari’ by organizing the ‘First Real Job’ program to equip students with the skills they need to achieve the next milestone after graduation – securing their first job. This educational program has kick-started to resounding success since 28 September 2016 and it is currently being brought to a total of 40 campuses across Malaysia until 18 January 2017.
College and university students who participate in the ‘First Real Job’ program will be armed with grooming, job interview and career-building tips. To top it off, Gillette is presenting every participant with a Gillette MACH3® Razor so they can apply the grooming tips they have learnt and ensure they make the best first impression.
Gillette has also invited 10 local leaders and management experts to speak with the students at selected campuses. The speakers will share their learnings from their work experience in order to prepare the students for successful job interviews and the importance of being well-groomed to add to your confidence.
“Gillette has always been at the forefront of innovation to empower our consumers around the world to achieve their best look so they can feel confident. It is this belief that has led us to organize the ‘First Real Job’ program with MYC to groom and bring the students one step closer to career-readiness.” said Utkarsh Mohan, Brand Operations Leader & Shavecare Country Category Leader of Procter & Gamble Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei.
