Hi Everyone,
I just thought I would share my experience with TalentCorp REP. First a little bit about myself. I work as a Director of Technology & Commercialisation Strategy at a boutique financial services consultancy.

After 16 years in Sydney building my career I was considering heading home to Malaysia. The decision came when I met Michael Warren from MDeC in a TalentCorp event organised with MIDA.

Setting a target of late 2015, I decided to put in my application in April 2015. The application was quite easy and straightforward. The key is to have all your information ready and attach it to your application.

I would have to admit that there were some "strange" criteria - in order for your spouse to qualify for the express PR, you would need to be married at the time of application. In my case, my marriage date is set later this year so there was no way I could bring this forward to "fit" into the application requirement. However, discussing with my fiance, who has a Postgradute in Teaching, we decided this is a small issue.

I was contacted by the REP Secretriat for few additional information such as my latest payslip. They also enquired if I am happy to share my CV with potential employers to which I said yes.

About a month after the application, I received an email saying that my application has been approved in principle pending final approval from Ministry of Finance.

The next steps are to get a VP/Director role in Kuala Lumpur. For this I have been in touch with various senior management recruiters.

If you have any queries on my experience I'm happy to answer them. Please email me at : [email protected]

Hi Azizi, has everything come through since you wrote?

Yes, the criteria is a little rigid. I've always thought - and said - that PR for spouses/fiancees should be for all Malaysians, not just REPs. Along with tax-free cars, etc...

But glad your application went smoothly. Keep us posted on your arrival.
