Public Service Department (JPA) scholars who graduated in 2010 and thereafter are eligible to participate in the STAR Initiative.
You are allowed to participate if you have been contacted by TalentCorp and/or JPA. If you have not, but would like to participate, please get in touch with the STAR team at TalentCorp (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bahagian Modal Insan, JPA.
If you are a JPA scholar who has just graduated, please ensure that you have reported for duty to JPA and applied to the Public Service Commission (SPA) before contacting the STAR team at email@example.com. We will be able to assist you.
Your scholarship bond remains with JPA and is not transferred to the company. However, your employment with the company will count towards serving your scholarship bond. Any matters or issues regarding your bond should rightly be referred to JPA, not the company.
Once you have secured and accepted a job offer with a participating company, you will be directed by JPA to serve your bond in the participating company. However, in the event you change employers, you are expected to inform TalentCorp and JPA regarding your new employer, and submit your new offer letter so that the process of “regularization” can begin. This will ensure that your employment with the new company is taken into account towards serving your bond obligations.
We are continuously looking to add more companies onto the Initiative. If the company you are interested to work for is not currently participating, please introduce them to the Initiative and lead them to the STAR portal at https://star.talentcorp.com.my to sign up.
Yes you can, but you need to apply deferment letter from JPA for approval and during your study your bond will freeze until you finished. But once you have completed your study you need start to serve your bond with government body or private sector in Malaysia. It is not recommended for JPA scholars to take a holiday/gap as graduated JPA scholars must find their own job within one year period after graduation. In any case you would need to take a gap year, we would advise you to get an approval from JPA and the same process applied.
Your refusal to be part of the Initiative will be forwarded to JPA for further action.
If the company you are interested to work for is not currently participating, please introduce them to TalentCorp and lead them to the STAR portal at https://star6.webway.my/emp/reg to sign up
It is advisable for you to get an approval from JPA. JPA will decide on this based on case to case basis.
You may only opt for Management Trainee in Malaysia in order to ensure you are able to serve your bond with JPA while working. Please ensure your Management Trainee Programme contract is one year or more.
