Skali to put unemployed ICT grads to work

Posted by CJCM on October 7th, 2007

By STEVEN PATRICK

KUALA LUMPUR: If you are an ICT (and communications technology) graduate and having a hard time getting a job, e-business specialist Skali has an offer for you.

It will train you and give you a job in the Managed Portal Services (MPS) project, which involves the maintainance and upgrading of the 102 state government and 471 federal government websites.

Skali announced that it was awarded the six-year project, which is worth RM258mil, on Wednesday and has openings for 4,000 graduates in its training programme.

Through the programme, called Spike (short for Skali Pioneers and Innovators in Knowledge Economy), the company hopes to help unemployed graduates further develop their ICT knowledge and become entrepreneurs.

“The trainees will undergo practical training in multimedia and business, programming, IT networking systems, and project management,” said Aimi Aizal Nasharuddin, president of Skali (also known as Alam Teknokrat Sdn Bhd).

During the first three months, the trainees will be paid an allowance of RM500 per month. Once they reach apprentice stage, they will receive salaries of between RM1,200 and RM4,000, depending on their level of skill and competency.

The training will be conducted at MPS support centres in Selangor, Terengganu, Kedah, Pahang, Johor and Perak, and has already started with a group of 300 graduates.

Applicants should surf to www.spike.com.my for more information.

Aimi said that at the end of the contract period, more than 400 companies would be set up to take over the managing of the government websites.

“The graduates we train will get the opportunity to become entrepreneurs because they will be encouraged to form those companies,” he said. Skali will also outsource other work to them.

There is an estimated 8,000 unemployed ICT graduates in the country, out of an overall 150,000 graduates in total looking for jobs.

According to Skali, the lack of working experience and “very bad English” are the main reasons why there are so many unemployed ICT graduates.

“If they sign up for Spike, we will be upfront and tell them where they are going wrong so that they can improve,” said Skali co-founder and group CEO Tengku Farith Rithauddeen.

The programme, he added, is also designed to push these graduates out of their comfort zone so that they will start to strive for themselves.

Sydney attractions and accomodations

Posted by CJCM on October 3rd, 2007

When I was studying in Australia, I did quite a bit of travel around Australia. Sydney was one of the Australian cities I had a chance to visit. This ultra modern Australian city has so much to offer. Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Bondi Beach, Sydney Aquarium, just to name a few, are popular Sydney attractions you should not miss when you are in Sydney.

Looking for places to stay in Sydney is not hard at all. Choosing a Sydney hotel for your stay is just a matter of your budgets and preferences.

You can stay in boutique hotels, luxury hotels or budget hotels depending on what you have in mind with your travel budgets. For those travelling in groups, you may want to opt for apartments where not only you will have more rooms but also better privacy.

If you plan to stay longer and spend more time at any one place, its better to stay at a hotel near that area. Darling Harbour for examples can make you busy for days just cruising, shopping, dining and site seeing around the harbour so a Darling Harbour hotel is probably what you would want to consider istead of North Sydney hotels, even though North Sydney is just facing the Harbour Bridge on the north side.

Whether it’s Sydney hotels, Darling Harbour hotels or North Sydney hotels, you still have the choices of 2-star, 3-star, 4-star or 5-star hotels to make your visit to Sydney a memorable one.

Malaysians can now withdraw PayPal funds to credit cards

Posted by CJCM on October 3rd, 2007

 

The biggest problem of withdrawing money from TYT PayPal account for Malaysians is finally solved… for good… and the solution is from none other than PayPal itself. You can now withdraw fund from your PayPal account directly to your credit card. And the cost is also quite cheap… USD 5.00 per withdrawal. The minimum withdrawal amount is USD10.00. If the withdrawal is somehow not completed and the amount will be returned to your PayPal account with USD 10.00 service charge incurred. This is definitely the best news for all Malaysian internet enterpreneurs who have been facing various problems withdrawing money from PayPal. There were previously various alternative solutions for Malaysians to withdraw money from PayPal but the steps involved are just too complicated for ordinary net -citizens with high transactions cost.

I guess Hafiz Latib from MalaysiaPal will not be too happy with this news from one aspect but I am sure this is for the betterment of all Malaysian internet enterpreneurs. For your information, MalaysiaPal introduced a mechanism for Malaysian to withdraw PayPal funds to Accent debit cards. The party is also over for those who have been making good income by buying and selling PayPal funds at heavily discounted MYR rates.

Come to think about it, I was wondering what took PayPal so long to implement this when the members can already fund the PayPal account from credit cards in the first place. In any case, kudos and big thank you to PayPal for solving the biggest problem for all Malaysian PayPal account holders. Bravo…..!!!

Say cheese with Sony’s latest digital cameras

Posted by CJCM on September 16th, 2007

 

If you don’t smile, it won’t capture. As simple as that. Sony’s latest Cybershot DSC T200 and DSC T70 employ face detection technology that won’t snap high-definition pictures until a selected subject smiles.

“Using the smile recognition shutter function selected by the touch panel, you can pick which of up to eight people is the key smile,” said Akira Tokuse who works in Sony product development.

Cool or not? I guess it depends who you talked to. You dare to bet that these cameras will not capture any picture of Mr Bean?

World’s smallest robot unveiled

Posted by CJCM on September 5th, 2007

It is only 15cm tall, controlled by infrared and battery operated. The world’s smallest robot is made in Taiwan by GeStream Technology Inc and will be showcased at the 8th International Strategic Partnership & Business Networking Trade Fair for SMEs (Global SMEs 2007) to be held at Matrade Exhibition & Convention Centre KL, from Sept 6 to 8. This cute robot can be yours for around RM650 to RM700 making it the cheapest so far.

With 16 degrees of freedom, which translates to 65536 motions, the Taiwanese humanoid robot is the smallest, lightest and the cheapest in the world.

“This new version is suitable for robot games and it is easy for the owner to download and update the newest robot motions or movements,” he said, adding that it was also easy to assemble and disassemble the battery-operated robot.

“Because the robot is sold in pieces, the owner will need to programme and learn to build his own robot. He can also add in any motion he wants to the robot,” said Chang.

Mobile phone offers mania continues

Posted by CJCM on July 28th, 2007

Mobile telecommunications must be one of the most revenue generating industry in the world in this fast moving world. Mobile phones that used to be affordable mostly by the working class are now carried even by primary school kids, and the models they show off to their friends can sometimes make my mobile phone Sony Ericsson K750i looks so obselete.

Mobile phone offers these days are mind blowing to say the least. Back in Malaysia, you could get free phones just for buying certain products using your credit card, pushing further the growth of mobile phone ownerships and possibly adding more statistics to credit card bankruptcy statitics as well.

With so many offers of cheap phones by the mobile phone vendors, selecting your preferred mobile phone can be a nightmare in itself. If you have school- or college-going children, you definitely have qualified consultants to seek advice on which mobile phone you are going to buy in the near future.
