Careers Fair 2021

Last Wednesday pupils in the Lower Sixth and Hundred were treated to expert advice from leading specialists across a range of careers at Marlborough College Malaysia’s 2021 Careers Fair.

“If you put your heart and mind into your dream job, it can be a reality” was memorable advice from our keynote speaker, Datuk Razlan Razali, Team Principal of the Petronas Sepang Racing Team, MotoGP. 

Datuk Razali gave his opening address at the online event before pupils engaged with professionals from all over the world as well as here in Malaysia. 

Pupils learned about the invention of the internal brace from the world-renowned Mackay Clinic in Scotland; the significance of analytical chemists at Pfizer; and the inner workings of the business world from MATRADE. 

All of the speakers provided our students with excellent messages; above all that their career path does not have to be and is increasingly unlikely to be linear. 

Thank you to all our speakers.
