In 2013, the unemployment rate in Malaysia was 3.3%
What do you think of that number?Big? Small? Moderate?
There are a lot of medium for job searching in Malaysia. Jobstreet.com, Jobtact.com, Talent Corp and etc. In fact you can go to the Career fair that is actively held over the year for employers to look for the candidates.
You first must, however, design a creative and great resume.
There are thousands of openings and opportunities that you can find. You can also subscribe to the email and it will automatically notify you jobs that fit your preferences.
Finance, computer science, sales, marketing. The lists go on. It’s up to you to choose and look for which is the most interesting job that you want to give it a try.
Here comes the part where some of us may have conflict choosing a job.
I have a friend, who is a Nuclear Engineering graduate, and end up working in Aviation Industry
I have a friend, who is an Actuarial Science graduate, top Class, who is happily doing property sales.
In Malaysia, you would not always get the job you want. Some may say the paper that so called “degree” is just an platform to enter to the career world. Then the truth of this statement will appear to be true:
“You’ve gotta love what you do”.
In contrast, before we started looking for a job, we might have chanted these words: “I’ve gotta do what I love”. The whole paradigm changes 360 degree. And so does your career path.
What your heart says, it is always the best. If you think you are no longer in your correct path, back to the old track. Don’t lie to yourself ends up it would put too much pressure and stress on you.
If your heart wanted you to go for sales because you’re good at presenting, go ahead. Find a property developer and become an authorised agent. Car agent would be another option. Sales aint easy job. It’s one of the toughest and remember this, Most of the top billionaires in the world used to become a salesman before.
If you think you enjoy doing programming, get a job in Tech company.Accenture, Misc, to name a few.
If your heart directs you towards art, you’re welcome to become a fashion designer or photographer. In fact these career nowadays pay handsomely.Why bother not to consider?
Some classify the job based on the pay salary. Some prefer it to look prestigious. Some choose it based on the job description. Whatever your decision are, consult your heart.
Do what you must my friend!
