About the MGAC
The Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge first started at 2012. The programme was developed wholly in-house by the Maybank Apprentices to seek for the right potential, energetic talents to be part of the organisation. The challenge holds a lot of different challenges that would push participants out of their comfort zone. Most of the participants were pushed to their limits and most of them found out what they are capable of. Honestly, it was exciting yet scary watching the recap of MGAC 2013 in the cinema during the launch of the event. I could feel the anxious feeling from the participants while watching the show yet also feeling pumped up to face these challenges if I were place on the spot.
Let me give you an advice if you are planning to join MGAC 2014, wear comfortable shoes on the day itself and have a LOT of sleep the week before the final selection! You will be running a LOT. haha.
MGAC will also want their participants to always be on their toes with current business strategies, along with skills to present their ideas to a room full of senior executives. Sounds like challenging? Don't think too much, just JOIN NOW.
THIS is a free competition. No registration fees require. Just YOU. What do you have to lose? You will never know what you are capable of unless you TRY IT YOURSELF. LOL. I sound super gangho now. heh. :D

If I can pass through the first round, I bet you all can do better than me. Though I am studying psychology, it could either be a disadvantage or an advantage to me. You will never know unless you try right? Besides those that are currently looking for a job, I strongly encourage you to join this, as you will get a chance to network with many high flyers during this competition. I got a thing for business related events and conferences (I know I don't look like that kind of girl. hehe), so joining this Maybank challenge, I hope to push myself further and beyond my potential. If I don't get in, at least I know I tried :)
FYI, I joined a DIGI Contest recently and
it would mean the world to me if you could VOTE for me <3
Anyways, all the best to y'all about to join soon!
And who knows, we might be on the same team if we made it through to the final round. LOL.
Have a good week ahead!
