Students in higher learning institutions should be encouraged to become job creators rather than job seekers. Datuk Seri Vijay Eswaran who is the QI Group executive chairman says that students should always be encouraged to take risks and create employment.
Conservative way of thinking is the one that has seen a student go to work for someone to gain experience before venturing on their own. QI Group is a multinational conglomerate. It has offices Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the Philippines. QI has subsidiary companies in over 30 countries.

During a student’s forum in organized Universiti Malaya, Mr. Vijay said that the world is fast-paced and jobs keep on changing especially with artificial intelligence technology taking over.
He adds that the Japanese, Koreans, Chinese, and Taiwanese have the will to gain some experience first, although they have every intention of becoming independent job creators and luring others to work for them.
Mr. Vijay advises to those seeking employment for the first time to consider several options. First on the list is to look for a position that matches your qualification. Choose between working for an established organization or a start-up. A good decision should weigh the pros and cons of both fields, and this is regarding how it will match your preferences and personality.
Understanding the rudiments of various development stages in business life metamorphosis from start-up to corporate is important. Vijay started his journey with a startup, and he points out that in such a situation, a student is supposed to be a leader and team member.
Come up with a good idea and ensure you see it through to the end. Vijay says that when a student decides to work for startups, they must enter into a psychological contract with them. This will help in shouldering their burden.
Vijay says, with startups there is a lot of free communication and action as well as fast pace. It is also changing every day. He opines that it is important for one to consider the environment that is essential in helping one achieve their goals.
Whether you think outside the box or better in an ever-evolving is not important. Your personality, work style, and unique needs will help in determining whatever that will be best for your career.
