1. Introduction

Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), located in Penang, the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, is Malaysia’s second public university. Founded in 1969, the university strongly upholds to the motto, ‘We Lead’. This is well exemplified and showcased into every action and event organized under the umbrella of USM. Back in 2008, USM was awarded with the status as Malaysia’s pioneer APEX University, underlining further the strength and potential of the university academia, staff and students. In enhancing the accelerated program towards excellence (APEX), USM embarks on many frontiers other than its core area of providing tertiary education. Faculty development, research and innovation, efficient event management and intensive sports development are amongst the niche areas for USM.

Stepping into into a new phase of life for students is believed to be much more challenging to deal with compared to tertiary education. Besides offering formal education to students, USM extensively acts in aiding graduates to make successful transition from school to work. Therefore, Ekspo Kerjaya dan Pendidikan (EKSPEN) is designed to help our graduates in preparing and building a more realistic expectation to make the journey less stressful. EKSPEN also helps provides more options for graduates in searching for employment.
