Graduates from STEM-fields turn Deep Learning Engineers?
At present, a large number of graduates in Malaysia are yet to land themselves a suitable job. Job prospects most abundantly offered in the industry diverges from graduates’ respective fields of study. We can actually resolve job and skills mismatch quite easily.
Changing graduates’ outdated mindsets
First, the narrative of having to go through two to six years of tertiary education for one to get a job has to stop. The fact is that diplomas and degrees do not guarantee jobs and employability like how they used to. Today, you can opt from a considerable amount of ways to reskill through professional certifications and short courses.
What are Micro-credentials?
The Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) refers to micro-credentials as “… a certification of learning of a smaller set of courses or modules or units which are designed to provide learners with knowledge, skills, values and competencies in a narrow area of study and/or practice.”
Through micro-credentialing, you can earn a job-focused qualification faster than any other alternatives. It leaves options open for you to pursue into several fields within a short amount of time.
What gives micro-credentialing the competitive edge?
Micro-credentials are highly job-focused. You will be prepared for the real-world working experience. The cost of earning a micro-credential is far more affordable. This helps school leavers who are yet to earn avoid paying hefty student loans after graduating.
Micro-credentials are offered as digital badges. You will be able to stand out in the corporate scene as you share them on social media. These digital badges, sometimes known as digital accreditations or certifications verifies your skills clearly.
It saves employers the trouble to validate the authenticity of the certificate.
