Graduate strives for salon business on campus

By: Noor Eszereen Juferi


SERDANG, Oct 30  – Nurzulaikha Raduian, a Bachelor of Corporate Communications graduate, from the Faculty of Modern Languages and Communication, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) has been dedicated in running her salon business during the duration of her studies.


She opted to run a salon business owing to her interest in the beauty industry, and ultimately, she aspires to produce her own beauty products someday.


"During my studies in UPM, I have been actively involved in university programmes and have had the opportunity to learn about business at the Centre of Entrepreneurial Development & Graduate Marketability (CEM) and the University’s Community Transformation Centre (UCTC)," she said.


She had some experience running a food business. She added that students needed to change the notion that starting a business requires substantial capital.


"I once started a business with a capital of under RM50. What is more important is that we must have the interest and effort to venture into a business. We also need to be smart in choosing the kind of business that we would like to do. For example, with RM1, we can buy business products starting at 20 cents," she said.


Nurzulaikha explained that business communication is essentially the most important in promoting and facilitating a business.


"When in the business field, we need to meet with potential clients and stakeholders to help improve our network. This directly helps me to stay confident in growing forward with my business," she said.


She also said that in recent times, finding job opportunities is challenging, and having her own business means she has a career and is able create jobs for the public. - UPM
