KUALA LUMPUR, March 29- JobStreet.com, the number one job site in Malaysia, expects the manufacturing sector to continue to offer the most job opportunities for Malaysian jobseekers this year. Country Manager Chook Yuh Yng said the country’s positive growth and stable economy were among the factors that drive the number of job openings.
“Malaysia is very much a manufacturing-driven country and this sector is very big. Naturally, it will offer more jobs,” she told a press conference after opening the 15th Malaysia Career and Training Fair (MCTF) 2013 here today. After manufacturing, information communications and technology, banking, construction and retail and wholesale offer the most jobs, Chook said.
Looking ahead, she said the job outlook is expected to be positive on the back of bullish local fundamentals and eased worries over the US economy. In conjunction with the event, JobStreet.com also announced their milestone in reaching its two millionth Malaysian jobseeker member. This year’s event attracted more than 160 top companies including Petroliam
National Bhd, Nestle Products Sdn Bhd, DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd, Philip Morris (M) Sdn Bhd and British American Tobacco.
Over 120,000 jobseekers are expected to visit the three-day career fair with thousands of quality jobs in various sectors on offer. Chook noted JobStreet.com will soon introduce some new and innovative products as well as features that will make the site easier for jobseekers to find the right job.
