Hi, I was a government sponsored student and had just graduated from oversea university. I have applied for SPA and filled in the Lapor Diri form. My questions are:

1) When will I be getting replies from the government?
2) Can we work in private companies while waiting for the replies?

Also, can anyone provide some tips/guides for a fresh graduate with no working experience?

Filling the forms are just formality. Keep looking for opportunities elsewhere, or else you'll be disappointed.

Lapor diri is a MUST, or else u r considered as breaking your bond with JPA IF u do not lapor diri.

well, most governments jobs need to sit for a test no matter what positions u r applying for? what kind of tests are they?

Plus, I tot JPA scholars are given priority for granting a job compared to others? What I really know is that JPA scholars are allowed to choose positions they wish to apply, regardless of your fields, and if so unfortunate, u will be simply placed to whatever fields that might not your field or which u might not like.

1)

You got the wait for a year the most from JPA/SPA/TalentCorp according to the rules, and during such period, you cant work in the Private Sector if there is a employment contract signed between you and the employer.

In reality, most of the Scholars I know of just could not care less about this ruling, some never returned, some straight worked in private sector in Malaysia and JPA is known for being pretty lenient about its scholars unless you studied medicine or pharmacy. Else, you are pretty much "free" from the bond of cousre, getting a black and white letter after one year from JPA is better.

And Also, under our beloved Ah Jib Gor Gor ambitious plan (talentcorp initiative) , as long as you work in Malaysia (be a private or public), it seems perfectly fine with JPA or the Government.

Please bear in mind for a Degree Holder, working in public sector already can get 3k ringgit (including allowances) as a start, whether this will lead Malaysia to bankruptcy is another issue. Only a handful of private companies in Malaysia offer 3k and above for fresh grad ( except GLCs). It all boil downs on what you want for your life actually.

If I choose to breach the contract, I have to pay rm160k to the government... Can I pay in installments instead of one lump sum?

Hi guys, I am a US JPA Scholar just came back. Called to go to "Program Student Assessment Center (SAC) Dan Re-Oerientasi Bagi Graduan USA" next week (July 16-18). It's a camp, lodging provided

Any idea what is going on there? Just Exam, Physical Assessment, Talks?

Hopefully nothing too scary o.O

Also, does this mean they are going to assign me to jobs?

Thanks in advance.

obviously, those calling for the camp might get a higher priority in getting into gov jobs aka serve the bond.

fyi, my friends from local university, also JPA scholars, are called for this camp few days ago. while those calling for the camp are all first class holder, non-first class are not called to attend the camp, it just makes us wonder JPA may only recruit or prioritize first class fresh grads to work with them? hmm.gif

So there's a camp now.

Back then, it's only a session. Submit copies of degree, transcripts etc, and voila, you're done! Go back to your hometown and start a new life. But that's a few years back's story. Things have changed. It's no secret that a lot of JPA scholars are accepted into government service recently.

Don't worry too much about the camp, jonnyl. Enjoy it, as JPA won't torture fresh graduates, let alone its own scholars.

Here's my situation:

I have report my degree completion to JPA via website and applied for a job via SPA website.

Actually I've been to this interview and they want to offer me a job but as I was bonded to JPA, they asked for a release letter. That is impossible to produce unless after..a year of unemployment from goverment?

However, I've checked that this company has a MoU with JPA that it could recruit JPA scholars under the STAR TalentCorp program.

So, is it possible for me to ask an early release from JPA to the said company without waiting another 3 months to get a reply for a job by the goverment?

Nope it is NOT possible to get a release letter before the 3 months waiting period. But I would say go for that job first, don't worry about jpa calling u back cuz it is unlikely in 3 months' time

I was a JPA scholar too. I would suggest that you apply to other companies before waiting for SPA to get back to you. They may take months.
After I graduated, I did the same thing as you, Applied to SPA and Lapor Diri. Luckily already have a job offer overseas, so worked there. 2 years on.. SPA haven't call me

Company dowan to give offer letter until i produce the release matter mehh. Only thing I could do is appeal to skip the 3months waiting period and straight away enrol into STAR TalentCorp program where the company can legally hire me and i serve my bond there.

look for another company and don't mention JPA.. or tell the current one JPA don't usually call back scholars to work.. track record of callback is low. unless you are in dentistry/medicine, or are of majority race..

that is not completely true, as they still have to apply for this post through SPA and go through the 3 stages of assessment, and it is real tough if u refer to the ' PTD ' thread.

I got few other offers but offer from this company is what I'm reli looking for. I'm just hoping that somehow JPA would let me into the talentcorp programme right away. Anyone know who's the contact person in JPA to discuss about this stuff? I was told to speak to Ms. Haziani, but accidently lost the piece of paper where I wrote her direct number. @____@

Probably tomorrow is the day my fate will be decided @____@

SPA is an option. The other option is to apply to be a teacher (Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Pelajaran). Or Kerajaan Negeri, or Kerajaan Tempatan. Or as Polis or Tentera.

Source: JPA SAC Camp which I just attended.


Added on July 19, 2012, 5:39 pmMore info from the camp:

If you performed well academically, you may be called to the TAPS Programme (http://www.talentcorp.com.my/malaysians-abroad/taps/). Cannot say no to TAPS or else pay ganti rugi in lump sum. 3 months from lapor diri, if you failed to get any government posting, you will be directed to STAR Programme with Talentcorp, where you are given opportunities to serve out bond in the private sector. Hence, it is important to know your lapor diri date, so that you can check on things when 3 months is up.

If after 12 months from lapor diri date you still cannot get a job in STAR Programme, you can ask for bond release letter from JPA. Then you are officially free from the JPA bond from the rest of your life. I recommend this unless you want surprises in the future..

Failure to lapor diri now will result in "Notis Kebankrapan" by Jabatan Peguam Negara. This will affect your guarantors. Please, just lapor diri first no matter what you do.

If wanna study more after graduate, have to go through JPA first for approval, which isn't guaranteed. Can contact JPA for required documents.

Looks like JPA Scholarship is no more a bond-free scholarship. Must come back to Malaysia and serve bond.

jonnyl, based on what you have stated, can we actually apply or accept jobs from any private companies within the 3 months? Also, do we have to lapor diri at Putra Jaya? Most of my friends and I did that online last month, but till now the semakan status lapor diri is still showing a - sign. I guess it has not been updated by JPA. In the meantime, FYI most of us graduated from Canada universities are searching for jobs and few of us has even started working with contracts. shocking.gif

the official JPA answer would be no, you cannot start working in the 3 months. But practically, and in practice, people just start working, until they have no choice but to leave and take up whatever that the bond demands of them. but i think the employer should be made aware of the possibility of leaving because of JPA bond service.

lapor diri can be in person, done online completely, or done by post (which I did). not sure, do contact the person in charge as stated in your emails to verify your lapor diri. good luck!

Thanks for your reply. So I think you're right that employer should be made aware of this before we sign any contracts. And I might as well call up JPA to reconfirm my lapor diri status. It's still better to get clarification personally from them.

Guys, does working for government linked companies such as UEM, Petronas, Proton can be considered as serving the JPA bond? Thanks

only if you are officially in the Talentcorp STAR Programme, and if these companies are in the STAR Programme too. Otherwise you syok sendiri only haha

I was really surprised to see some of the replies here. The government spent so much money to sponsor these students and yet didn't give them priority when it comes to job offer...

there are just too many JPA Scholars sponsored every year, how to hire all? With Talentcorp, now you can work in the private sector to service your bond.

Yep, it is that website. That website is a bit crazy because I kept inserting my job application file but for some reasons, it disappears the next day when I checked it. And is it me or does some of the information in 'lapor diri' disappears even after filling it repeatedly ?! unsure.gif

I called pn amalia just now.. she said apply for 5 positions is the requirements for jpa lapor diri.. even spa website system went smooth, but it doesn't account for lapor diri process if apply for only one job. BTW i didn't lapor diri thru sistem pemantauan.. most of my friends lapor diri by sending them the 4 docs needed by post..

But i really wonder, what kind of jobs can a chemical engineering graduate apply besides chemical engineer?? mechanical, electric, civil??sad.gif

Calm down, you don't have to use caps lock to ask question.

1) Log in here: http://www.spa.gov.my/Portal/MaklumanBorangSPA8i

2) Make sure all the required informations are filled in

3) Click Seterusnya until Pengakuan Pemohonan, then click Hantar again

4) You will see your slip permohonan SPA, either save it as PDF, or do print screen, or if you do not know how to do the first two ways then print it for real then scan it using scanner

Alternatively, for those who doesn't have their academic transcript / salinan ijazah, you could just lapor diri online and apply for job first, send the other 2 documents in later, it's fine...at least that's what I was told.

Can anyone tell me how long does it take for them to semak the lapor diri thing? A week? A month?

I have already applied for the post on the web site of the signing of the SPA as the current agreement to receive this scholarship. My question is,

1) How long should I wait to get a call from the JPA?
2) During the waiting period, can I work at any company?
3) Can I request a letter of release from JPA to work in any company during the waiting period (letter that JPA allow me to join any company before they call me) ?

3. Apakah perbezaan antara Biasiswa dan Pinjaman?

Biasiswa
Pelajar yang menerima penajaan dalam bentuk biasiswa dikehendaki berkhidmat dengan kerajaan untuk suatu tempoh yang dipersetujui.
Mereka boleh dilepaskan dari ikatan kontrak sekiranya kerajaan tidak dapat menyediakan kerja dalam tempoh 12 bulan selepas pelajar melaporkan diri di JPA atau mereka membayar ganti rugi kepada kerajaan mengikut jumlah yang ditetapkan dalam perjanjian.
Pinjaman
Kemudahan pinjaman pelajaran disediakan bagi pengajian di luar negara sahaja.
Pelajar yang menerima pinjaman dikehendaki membayar balik jumlah pinjaman sebenar mereka selepas menamatkan pengajian. Bayaran boleh dibuat secara ansuran. Pinjaman ini tidak dikenakan sebarang faedah.

Hi everyone. I am a fresh graduate sponsored by JPA as well. I am planning to return to UK for my masters, however in order to apply for the study visa I would need a consent letter from JPA. Does anyone here is going through the same thing? Also, does anyone know how long does JPA take to process the lapor diri thing? I really need my lapor diri status to be updated ASAP! T.T

I am confused with the lapor diri thing too. Does anyone know how long JPA will confirm as "sudah lapor diri"? The one year period starts from the day we fill in the form and apply post or starts from the day they approve us as "sudah lapor diri"? If like the previous comments saying that their status are "incomplete" then does that mean we havent lapor diri?

I lapor diri online. And my status is still belum semak as well. I wonder how long will they take to process it. I hope the one year waiting period starts on the day i lapor diri not on the day the status becomes "sudah lapor diri".

Hmm I phoned them the last time and I was told that the lapor diri is counted from the time you start lapor diri...not starting from the day that status becomes " sudah lapor diri". I am also a little worried coz it has been already 3 months and my status is still "belum semak"...alamak. shakehead.gif Plus, the online system is quite annoying as I have to keep uploading the academic transcripts and spa application receipt which keeps on disappearing from time to time. mad.gif

I also called them last week, they said we have to pass up the
1. lapor diri form (http://www.jpa.gov.my/docs/blatihan/lapordiri2007.pdf),
2. Salinan Sijil/Diploma/Ijazah (dikemukakan kemudian setelah diperolehi dari pihak universiti/selepas konvokesyen)
3. Salinan transkrip (seperti di para 2)
4. Mohon berkhidmat dengan Kerajaan melalui website www.spa.gov.my

these 4 documents (at least 1 and 4) baru considered as sudah lapor diri. Lastime I lapor diri online and i did not upload the form so i think that's why my status hasn't been changed. Did you pass up the form?

Part 14, How do you usually write for kelulusan dicapai for a biology student?
Part 21, I studied at local uni, so the options provided in page 2 do not suit my condition.

Nope, no date of lapor diri and my status is still "masih belajar". Are you in the same situation too? It asks us to lapor diri within one month after we finish our degree but now its already 3 months after. sad.gif I wont get punished for that eh?

Hi guys,

I am a JPA scholar in the final year of my degree in Australia and just got called for an assessment by TAPS.

Any TAPS associate here keen to share salary, gov agencies posted, etc?

Also, can i refuse a TAPS offer for an offer from a private firm listed under STAR?

Any feedback appreciated, thanks!

i think the procedure is to lapor diri to JPA putrajaya as soon as possible..u need to apply with SPA first before u do this though so that JPA knows that u are in the system.

usually OVERSEAS JPA scholars are given priority over local scholars and sometimes SPA & JPA even conduct interviews overseas(aussie, us etc) to ensure these scholars dont runaway..lol

after lapor diri just apply for other jobs as well..dont think they can trace..u need to work n gain experience rite..unless ur from rich family..

roughly within a year if they find a suitable position for u(ure already interviewed etc) u will be called up to lapor diri to work

My advice: dont sit around waiting for govt offers to come..work and earn and gain experience..theres a lot more higher paying jobs out there..heheh..if they call u up just report or pay up..;p

Well, in the 3 month hiatus between reporting and applying SPA jobs to waiting for the outcome from the government, someone who starts working first in the private sector would only gain at most 3 months advantage in income and work experience, wouldn't they?

Because after 3 months and if there's no vacancy in SPA and you're not selected for TAPS, your next alternative is STAR, working for private firms. Assuming firms do all year round intakes in which most firms in msia usually do, one can always start after 3 months waiting period ends. In those 3 months, im guessing time can be spent travelling, indulging in hobbies, family bonding sessions,etc

Plus, if you start working in the private sector during the waiting period, if you get called back, you'll have to resign or even worse, pay some sum of money if you sign a contract and breach it by resigning.

Well, you can skip all these headache by paying up of course, as mentioned earlier =p

SPA is an option. The other option is to apply to be a teacher (Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Pelajaran). Or Kerajaan Negeri, or Kerajaan Tempatan. Or as Polis or Tentera.

Source: JPA SAC Camp which I just attended.


Added on July 19, 2012, 5:39 pmMore info from the camp:

If you performed well academically, you may be called to the TAPS Programme (http://www.talentcorp.com.my/malaysians-abroad/taps/). Cannot say no to TAPS or else pay ganti rugi in lump sum. 3 months from lapor diri, if you failed to get any government posting, you will be directed to STAR Programme with Talentcorp, where you are given opportunities to serve out bond in the private sector. Hence, it is important to know your lapor diri date, so that you can check on things when 3 months is up.

If after 12 months from lapor diri date you still cannot get a job in STAR Programme, you can ask for bond release letter from JPA. Then you are officially free from the JPA bond from the rest of your life. I recommend this unless you want surprises in the future..

Failure to lapor diri now will result in "Notis Kebankrapan" by Jabatan Peguam Negara. This will affect your guarantors. Please, just lapor diri first no matter what you do.

If wanna study more after graduate, have to go through JPA first for approval, which isn't guaranteed. Can contact JPA for required documents.

Looks like JPA Scholarship is no more a bond-free scholarship. Must come back to Malaysia and serve bond.

Hi Jonnyl,

Can I say no to STAR Programme?? (Yesterday I just received the letter from Telent Corp saying that I have been selected by JPA for STAR Programme)

As I have accepted a job offer at Singapore and I really wish to work at Singapore. icon_question.gif

i feel so insecure about reporting ourselves to jpa. we dont get any slip after we report ourselves (even though i know it takes them long time to update my status). at least we have the slip for job application at spa website. i post them the relevant docs as well, but no reply too.

do you guys get any proof for reporting ourselves to jpa?

You can actually call them up to ask whether they have received the documents you send, just as a confirmation.
By the way, when do you start to send the lapor diri documents to them?

Yeah, they SHOULD HAVE told u the effective date but they would not unless you ask them specifically, which I did and it took them quite a while to reply me coz apparently their system down/hang/crash/overload. On another note, is the website (http://esimos.jpa.gov.my/) down? Wanna check if they semak already -.-

LOL, you don't to apply for the STAR program or the TAPS program, you will automatically get selected if you are a JPA scholar.

Best plan for a JPA scholar is , Lets say you do come back to Malaysia and you don't wanna work for the government :

a) You go find work in private sector, then apply to exempt yourself from serving the government service sector after 1 year.

b) If the government offers you SPA job within 1 year, you turn to talentcorp and say you already started working and you tell them you wanna convert your bond into private sector one. Talentcorp will do that for you and SPA wont even care because TOO MANY people wanna join civil service and they wanna take care of "their people".

c) Or you just don't have to care responding to JPA/SPA. Acting like nothing happene which I know a lot of people are doing that currently.

Hi all,

May I know how to check the status whether my lapor diri has been checked?

I went to this website (http://esimos.jpa.gov.my/) , and clicked on the "lapor diri" tab, it brought me to the application form page. So, I kinda confused whether they have received my lapor diri, as I have filled in that form back in early December and tried to check the status a few times, everytime will get into that application form page, I didnt see any "semak status" page as mentioned by the scholars in previous replies.

Thanks.

Guys, how easy is it to get a job via SPA?

At least for STAR, I do think the companies treat the scholars more or less like normal job applicants.

Very hard. The chances are like lottery, very random selection process. You better get a job in private 1st, while hoping for government jobs.

Imagine you tanam anggur for 6 months till 1 year, can you sustain all sort of pressures? from peers to parental pressure.

Hey all,

I recently checked esila website again and all of my documents I uploaded went missing, what's worst is that they put in the wrong lapor diri date!

Wonder if this happen to anyone??

Hi there

I checked the esila website and on the banner it says that the 'Lapor Diri Online' option is only available to students who studied in msia.

Is this a new change or has it always been advertised this way but overseas graduates can still lapor diri online?

Asking because this is going to be a headache to plan to go to putrajaya to lapor diri for me

Btw, just wondering what is the process to getting released from the bond?
Thanks!

RHB is actually under the STAR list of companies. You might need to consult the HR to access the scholar profiles.

Second matter, about SPA8i...i've just daftar at SPA for an MyID account (required for filling in SPA8i) but I've yet to receive an activation email. Anyone facing this problem? How long does it take for them to send? Fyi, I've checked my junk mail, nth's there. sad.gif

Unfortunately you couldnt say NO to government jobs within the first year time. You have agreed to work for the government when you signed your contract few years back. biggrin.gif

Hmm, but back in 2007, my cousin who is a JPA scholar, secured a job with MOTOROLA even before he graduated. And when JPA called him up offering him to work for government, he simply tell them that he already has a job bla bla bla, and they release him from the contract.

But that was back in 2007....

You can reject the offer if they offer you a contract job, but if they offer you permanent, almost no chance. The best way is to screw the interview and ensure that they don't offer you the job. lol

I am a JPA scholarship student as well. I had just finished my study and I had returned to Malaysia.

I keep seeing everyone said that the bond is break if one year no job From SPA. However, I am not able to see this statement anywhere on our contract and the website.

Can anyone indulge me on this?

I was a JPA scholar too. I would suggest that you apply to other companies before waiting for SPA to get back to you. They may take months.
After I graduated, I did the same thing as you, Applied to SPA and Lapor Diri. Luckily already have a job offer overseas, so worked there. 2 years on.. SPA haven't call me

Hi I'm currently in my final year and am weighing my options. I would appreciate it very much if anyone could come forward to share your own (or others that you know of) experience with getting called/not getting called to serve their bond either through SPA, TalentCorp, TAPS or GEMS.

My CGPA is relatively low below 3.4 and I am a Chinese from Sarawak if that helps. What would the probability be for me to be called? Would it be wise to apply straight for a job or should I wait 3 or 12 months?

Any advice would be appreciated, thank you very much for your time

Regarding the STAR programme, how many jobs does a JPA scholar need to apply to?

If one had applied for only 1 job and he didn't get the job, what goes on next? After that, could he just wait for 1 year and get released from the bond?

Hello.
I read about pages saying that there's this bond with the gouvernent for Jpa scholars.
It works as when the JPA scholar completed his/her degree, it is a must to work for the gouvernment for 4-6 years right after graduation.
If he/she refuses, then the sponsored amount for the previous studies will have to be returned as well. Is that true???

Furthermore. I'm interested to know how Jpa scholarship works. As in the pros and cons.
And also testimonies from Jpa scholars biggrin.gif

Any replies are much appreciated. Thank you!

You are JPA scholar currently or going to apply one ?

Yes, you need to bond with gov for 4-6 years depending on your programme. For medic student will be 10 years.

Is it a must ? depend on the vacancy in gov sector. not necessary you will be called up by gov to work with them.

If gov offers you but you refuses, mean you violate the contract and you have to pay back. The amount I'm not sure is it the same with the amount they sponsored you or more.

What's your degree ?

Hey

I was a scholarship recipient under Program Ijazah Luar Negara. My contract says I am to serve a six-year bond.

Did everything that was required of me, lapor diri then registered with SPA, went to an SPA interview and didn't get selected. I was also automatically registered for the TalentCorp STAR program as I was still unemployed three months after graduation.

Now my degree is in a very specialised course and there isn't a position in any government bodies save for DCA (then again you still need some sort of aircraft maintenance licence, which I don't have). I am currently looking for opportunities in the private sector, and should I manage to secure employment, as long as the company/organization is registered with TalentCorp, I'm good to go, and you will then have to remain with said company for as long as your bond is.

From my PoV, pros of JPA scholarship, well, it's a scholarship smile.gif, timely allowance brows.gif , not sure about other scholarships' selection process but I felt the JPA interview was fairly easy, they are quite tolerant if you have a change of heart and wanna change course, I had a friend who switched from Mech Eng. to Maths, no problems.

Cons, at the end of each academic year you will have to mail (yes, snail mail) the JPA branch in whatever country you're in the transcript of the year's exam results, which I found to be a bit vexing mad.gif , some people complain about the allowance, but it depends on your lifestyle really, I lived lean, so it's always more than enough. Lastly, as with all Government sponsorships, you have to attend BTN nod.gif

I'm not a Jpa scholar. But I'm interested to apply.
read online. but am still very helpless as to where to start applying.

Besides, I am enjoying my university scholarship. ( the basic amount, the higher amounts one will only be confirmed once I pass my university interview which is yet to be scheduled later on..)

Currently enrolled into Taylor's Bachelor of Biomedical Science course.
March intake, means I will start my study really soon (:

I saw some testimonies saying that Jpa scholars are sometimes given jobs they don't desire/interested in although they already emphasized their field of interest in the forms.
And then there's practically no way back... unless you fail in the interview session.. purposely lol..
then they won't hire you, hence you're in other words, freed from the bond.
( which I'm also curious is the interview a compulsory procedure for every offer from the authorities, or maybe it's due to the position offered?)

Now my degree is in a very specialised course and there isn't a position in any government bodies save for DCA (then again you still need some sort of aircraft maintenance licence, which I don't have). I am currently looking for opportunities in the private sector, and should I manage to secure employment, as long as the company/organization is registered with TalentCorp, I'm good to go, and you will then have to remain with said company for as long as your bond is.

From my PoV, pros of JPA scholarship, well, it's a scholarship smile.gif, timely allowance brows.gif , not sure about other scholarships' selection process but I felt the JPA interview was fairly easy, they are quite tolerant if you have a change of heart and wanna change course, I had a friend who switched from Mech Eng. to Maths, no problems.

Cons, at the end of each academic year you will have to mail (yes, snail mail) the JPA branch in whatever country you're in the transcript of the year's exam results, which I found to be a bit vexing mad.gif , some people complain about the allowance, but it depends on your lifestyle really, I lived lean, so it's always more than enough. Lastly, as with all Government sponsorships, you have to attend BTN nod.gif

HELLO (: thanks for replying.
Anyway, about your scholarship, is that another name for Jpa scholarship?
Haha sorry got a little confused over there..
Anyway.. what degree did you do? aircraft-related..?

Are you employed now? Yes or no, I hope you're doing equivalently well (:

Anyway, how "good" will I have to be to stand a chance in getting JPA?
I told some friends, and they laughed at me saying that JPA only sponsors top students ( mostly local instituition students) to complete their studies overseas then come back Malaysia to serve...

I'm not planning to fly overseas anytime soon. ( currently registered in Taylor's Biomedical Science course if that matters biggrin.gif march intake 2014)[COLOR=red]
And since you're a Jpa scholar, can you give me advices on where should I start doing..?
Oh boy I'm so lost ):
I saw the online application, and there are SO MANY information ):

I'm not a Jpa scholar. But I'm interested to apply.
read online. but am still very helpless as to where to start applying.

Besides, I am enjoying my university scholarship. ( the basic amount, the higher amounts one will only be confirmed once I pass my university interview which is yet to be scheduled later on..)

Currently enrolled into Taylor's Bachelor of Biomedical Science course.
March intake, means I will start my study really soon (:

I saw some testimonies saying that Jpa scholars are sometimes given jobs they don't desire/interested in although they already emphasized their field of interest in the forms.
And then there's practically no way back... unless you fail in the interview session.. purposely lol..
then they won't hire you, hence you're in other words, freed from the bond.
( which I'm also curious is the interview a compulsory procedure for every offer from the authorities, or maybe it's due to the position offered?)

For IPTA, most of my biomedical friends not offered job by JPA after they graduated because no vacancy. Hence they free from the bond after one year.

Well, I'm not sure is it applicable to IPTS as well since the tuition fees are more expensive than IPTA. However, if you going private after grad, talentcorp is there to bond you if you working under one of the participating company.

No bonds is imposed only if after 1 year? how true is it?

Are the JPA bond graduates made compulsary to apply jobs via SPA?

You can read the contract. If JPA didn't offer you within 1 year. You are free. But now they know they lose a lot of talents using this system. That's why they established Talentcorp to hold them back. So, even though you can't bond with gov, you will bond with privates.

Do we need to write back to JPA to confirm black and white about the free of bonding?

Somehow, that is what I feel the procedure would be:
1. After grads, lapor diri.
2. Then apply via SPA, the 5- 15 positions.
3. Depends on the maklumat pengambilan, each position will have different intake date, so they will call you based on the position u apply and the intake date.
4. You attend the interviews, they will do the shortlisting.
5. If shortlisted, then congratz. If no, wait for other call from other position u apply.
6. So, if the other call drag for after a year, it does NOT mean you have free from the bond, they will still call u up for interview for the position u apply.

Well that's the official name for overseas sponsorship, and there's Program Ijazah Dalam Negara too, but my contract says "Biasiswa Persekutuan" heheh . I did Aeronautics & Astronautics, jobless at the moment blush.gif

You never try you never know, I applied after SPM. 7 guys in my form 5 class (incl. me) got the sponsorship to study in a number of different countries. Our SPM results ranged from 9A's to 12A's but SPM isn't everything.

I'd say give it a try! Start by applying online I suppose? The most I could remember from the selection process is that there was a group interview and there was some sort of written test.

Talk to the JPA folks, they're pretty forthcoming. Requesting bond deferral shouldn't be too difficult. They might even consider sponsoring your Master's degree abroad, I'm sure something could be worked out. A friend of mine got JPA to continue sponsoring him for PhD right after his MEng.

Don't waste time, start looking for a job. If you get employment in private sector chances are your employer is a participant in the STAR program and you can continue working in the private sector and you need to stay with that particular employer for the duration of your bond. You can even switch employers within the bond period provided you're switching to an employer that's also a participant.

Thank you for your information.

Should I inform them that if I found a job?
Either in the list of participating employers or not in the list?

Yes, as long as you're registered with TalentCorp. There are some paperwork to be done, as always.

Also, from the briefing that I attended, if SPA offers you a job when you're already employed by a STAR participant, you can choose to remain in your private sector job or to take up the SPA offer. Either way, the 'bond' is still being 'served'.
