ICT Job Market Outlook in Malaysia 2016 by PIKOM


Average Monthly Salary for Malaysians in 2016 According to PIKOM

Adapted by EduSpiral Consultant Services For more information contact 01111408838

The average monthly salary of an ICT professional in Malaysia grew from RM7,706 in 2014 to RM8,114 in 2015,  an increase of 5.3%. This year, the projected average monthly salary is RM8,496, a 4.7% increase over 2015. Despite challenging economic factors, Malaysia’s 2016 ICT job market remains positive albeit with slower than expected growth and concerns about the outflow of talent, according to national ICT industry association PIKOM’s latest research.

During the recent unveiling of the ICT Job Market Outlook in Malaysia 2016, PIKOM chairman Chin Chee Seong said the local ICT (information and communications technologies) industry has shown resilience in the face of challenges that started in 2014. These included the slowdown of the economy, the drop in the prices of crude oil and commodities, the depreciation of the Ringgit against major currencies as well the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), said Chin.

He said the total value of ICT in Malaysia for 2015 was estimated to be RM155.2 (US$38.51) billion, based on the average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 8 percent for the period 2010-2015. Chin said that ICT industry’s share of the national economy has expanded from 16.5 percent in 2010 to 17.6 percent in 2015 while the ICT industry’s main driver has been the ICT Services (ICTS) subsector – its contribution to GDP (gross domestic product) increased from 3.3 percent in 2000 to 6.6 percent in 2015 and may reach 7 percent by end of 2016.

“It has been a challenging 2015 for the industry,” he added. “But we have achieved positive growth that has been particularly driven by the expansion in the ICT Services subsector.”

In 2015, an IT Project Manager in Malaysia earned more than their counterparts in the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and India but much less than the ones in United States, United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong.

These are some of the many interesting findings in the National ICT Association of Malaysia (PIKOM)’s ICT JOB MARKET OUTLOOK IN MALAYSIA 2016 report.The report was done in collaboration with Jobstreet.com, a leading online job board presently covering the employment markets in Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam.

The report has been an indispensable guide to C-level executives, human resource practitioners, job seekers, undergraduates and many others, for more than eight years. It is aimed at helping decision makers in organisations, to understand and plan their talent requirements and budgets as well as to give job hunters a realistic view on the market rate for certain job categories, when they are asked for their salary expectations.

Launched today, the latest report indicated that despite the number of challenging factors that have hit

our country since 2014 such as the slowdown of the economy, the drop in the prices of crude oil and commodities, the depreciation of the Ringgit against major currencies and the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), the ICT industry in Malaysia showed resilience and continued its growth path.The total ICT value in Malaysia for 2015 is estimated to be RM155.2 billion, based on the Average Annual Growth Rate (AAGR) of 8% for the period 2010-2015.

The share of the ICT industry to the economy expanded from 16.5% in 2010 to 17.6% in 2015.The main driver of the ICT industry growth is the ICT Services subsector whose share to the GDP rose from 3.3% in 2000 to 6.6% in 2015 and is projected to reach 7 % by end of 2016.“It has been a challenging 2015 for the industry. But we have achieved positive growth that has been particularly driven by and thanks to, the expansion in the ICT Services subsector, “said PIKOM Chairman Chin Chee Seong.

While ICT Manufacturing subsector has been slowing, the ICT Services subsector has been experiencing positive growth in the last two decades, he added.“Consistent with industry growth, salaries also rose although at a slower growth rate,” said Chin, at a press conference today held at PIKOM’s premises in Damansara Perdana.

Job Market Trends in Malaysia Across the Sectors

Generally all ICT job categories, namely the fresh graduates, junior executives, senior executives, middle

level managers and senior managers registered a positive salary increase in 2015 albeit with a lower-than-expected growth.

In the table above, the construction / building /engineering industries posted the highest AAGR of the average monthly salary of ICT professionals for the 2009 to 2015 period, at 8.8%, followed by education (8.6%); automotive/heavy industry/machinery (8.5%) and electrical and electronics (8.5%).
Not surprisingly, the oil / gas / petroleum industry which has been experiencing a downturn, registered an AAGR of 4.7% over the same period and a 2.9% year-on-year growth in 2015.

However, oil/gas/petroleum was in the top five paying industries by job category. The other four are banking services; automotive/heavy industry/machinery; agriculture/plantation/aquaculture; and chemical/fertilisers/pesticides.

“The oil, gas and petroleum sector is still ranked as one of the overall top-paying industries by job categories despite the current industry downturn,” said PIKOM Research Committee Chair Woon Tai Hai.“In fact in the fresh graduates, senior executives and middle manager job categories, the oil, gas and petroleum was in the top five paying industries in 2015 posting an average monthly salary of RM2,984, RM8,291 and RM11,804respectively,” he added.However, PIKOM acknowledged that the 5.3 %salary growth for 2015 for the overall average monthly salary of ICT professionals is the lowest in eight years, said Woon.

“In fact in the fresh graduates, senior executives and middle manager job categories, the oil, gas and petroleum was in the top five paying industries in 2015 posting an average monthly salary of RM2,984 (US$740), RM8,291 (US$2,057) and RM11,804 (US$2,929) respectively,” Woon said.

The study found that construction / building /engineering industries posted the highest AAGR of the average monthly salary of ICT professionals for the 2009 to 2015 period, at 8.8 percent, followed by education (8.6 percent); automotive/heavy industry/machinery (8.5 percent) and electrical and electronics (8.5 percent).

The oil / gas / petroleum industry, which has been experiencing a downturn, registered an AAGR of 4.7 percent during the same period and a 2.9 percent year-on-year growth in 2015. “The oil, gas and petroleum sector is still ranked as one of the overall top-paying industries by job categories despite the current industry downturn,” said PIKOM Research Committee chair Woon Tai Hai.

While the industry expected a downturn, it certainly did not expect an impact of such magnitude, he said.“Perhaps it is also a wake-up call for the industry to realise that although salaries have been growing, future salary growth cannot be taken for granted,” he added.
The Challenge of Retaining Local Talent Remains

As in previous years, the industry continues to face the exodus of talent who seek greener pastures overseas due to better salaries and remunerations. When benchmarked against Asia, United States and Middle East, Malaysia continues to lag behind in terms of salaries, which has been a key factor in the continued prevalence of the brain drain issue.

The average monthly salary growth for an ICT professional saw an increase of 5.3% in 2015 compared to 10.9% in 2010, according to Pikom’s ICT Job Market Outlook In Malaysia 2016 report The National ICT Association of Malaysia says while the industry expected a downturn, it didn’t expect an impact of such magnitude. “People in the ICT industry won’t get that 10% salary increase again. This is a wake up call for the industry,” says Pikom advisor and research committee chair Woon Tai Hai.

Pikom also acknowledges that the 5.4% growth for 2015 for the overall average monthly salary is the lowest in eight years, he says. ICT professionals shouldn’t get their hopes up for a big raise this year – Woon says the report estimates salary growth to be 4.7% for 2016.

“It has been a challenging 2015 for the industry. But we have achieved positive growth that has been particularly driven by and thanks to, the expansion in the ICT Services subsector,” says Pikom chairman Chin Chee Seong.

The Jobstreet.com Employment Confidence Index found that most employees are not confident of getting a job given that 46% of prospective employers say that their business have been impacted while 54% say they may even consider downsizing. Jobstreet collaborated with Pikom on the ICT Job Market report.

The average salary for an ICT professional in 2015 was RM8,114.

However, oil/gas/petroleum was in the top five paying industries by job category. The other four are banking services; automotive/heavy industry/machinery; agriculture/plantation/aquaculture; and chemical/fertilisers/pesticides.

He confirmed that PIKOM found that the 5.3 percent salary growth for 2015 for the overall average monthly salary of ICT professionals is the lowest in eight years. Woon added that while the industry expected a downturn, “it certainly did not expect an impact of such magnitude. Perhaps it is also a wake-up call for the industry to realise that although salaries have been growing, future salary growth cannot be taken for granted.”

The average monthly salary of an entry level IT Project Manager, in Thailand, Hong Kong andSingapore, was 1.95 times, 1.88 times and 1.38 times, respectively, more than in Malaysia.It is imperative that both the industry and government tackle the issue of talent outflow through ensuring continuous stream of quality fresh graduates entering the work force, promoting R&D and commercialisation and maintaining competitive salary packages, said PIKOM Chairman Chin.

Written by EduSpiral Consultant Services For more information contact 01111408838

To continue your studies at degree level after your A-Levels, you will need at least 2 or 3 Principals or “E” in your results. A-Level students in Malaysia who did not manage to get these results would need to use their SPM results to go for another course.

Failing your A-Levels is not the end of the world. One of the reasons for not doing well in your A-Levels could be that it is not the right education system for you. The A-Levels is exam-based and very tough. My recommendation would be for you to consider taking the Foundation or Diploma course or going to Singapore. You can complete a degree in Singapore in less than 3 years using your SPM results! This would save you time.

A-Levels students who failed or didn’t get at least 2 principals can use their SPM or O-Level results to continue their studies. To save time, you can consider studying in Singapore where you can complete a UK or Australian degree in less than 3 years using your SPM or O-Level results.

To continue your studies in Malaysia, you can go for Foundation at top private universities. A Foundation course is much easier than the A-Level programme. However, note that most Foundation courses are not recognised for entry to overseas universities, so, if you plan to go overseas you should take an external Pre-University course or you can take the Foundation and then continue on to degree Year 1 at the same university and then transfer to their partner university overseas for your final 2 years. The other pathway is to go for the diploma course.

There are many types of diploma and Pre-University courses in Malaysia & Singapore as well as hundreds of undergraduate majors to choose from. But knowing the right one for you is the most difficult decision. The decisions that you make now, can change your life forever. You can contact us for a free career test to help you understand yourself better so that you are able to make the right decision.

Students who choose to study at top private colleges in Singapore can complete the degree in less than 3 years after their SPM. Some private universities in Malaysia cost more than RM100,000 to study at and they are only famous in Malaysia so why not pay the same amount to study in Singapore and complete the degree faster and obtain a UK or Australian degree awarded by top universities?

Completing a degree at top private colleges in Singapore is the fastest pathway after SPM or O-Levels. Students will take 7 to 12 months to complete a Diploma and then enter into the Degree programme for another 2 years. These colleges are recognised and accredited by the Singapore Government.

Students with at least 5 credits in SPM or O-Levels can enter into a Diploma course and then into the Degree programme and complete it in less than 3 years! Compared to studying in Malaysia, students after SPM will take 4 to 5 years to complete a degree programme. So, if you failed your A-Levels and want to make up for lost time, you should go to Singapore to study.

The entry into the 12-month diploma programme at PSB Academy is 3 Cs in SPM including English while the entry into the 7-month diploma programme at MDIS Singapore is 5 Cs in SPM.

Studying at a developed country with an English-speaking environment would enhance Malaysian students’ chances for a better future in their career. Furthermore, Malaysian graduates may apply to work in Singapore upon completing their degree course.

 

Study the Diploma in Malaysia if you Failed your A-Levels

Students in Malaysia who failed their A-Levels can enter the Diploma course using their SPM or O-Level results. You will need 3 credits in SPM or O-Levels to enter the diploma course. In the diploma you will study what you like so it would be easier than the A-Levels.

The Diploma pathway in Malaysia for students after SPM is 2 or 2.5 years and then enter into Year 2 of the Degree programme. You can apply for the PTPN Loan . You cannot apply for the PTPN Loan for Foundation, Pre-University or A-Level programmes.

Malaysian Private University Internal Foundation Programme

Students after SPM or O-Levels can consider taking the Foundation Programmes at top private universities in Malaysia. The Foundation Programmes are 1 year and is cheaper compared to the external Pre-University Programmes.

Many private higher educational institutions in Malaysia, have developed their own internal university foundation programmes.

These courses are accredited by the Malaysia Qualification Agency (MQA) and recognised by the respective foreign partner universities.

Unlike the external qualifications which focus on more general Science and Art-based subjects, the internal qualifications provide specialisation in precise areas of study such as the fields of businesscomputer IT, and engineering, and hence, cater to the specific needs of different students.

Students who know what they want to study can just go for the Foundation at the university offering the degree of interest. It is cheaper, easier and a faster way to continue to completing the degree.

Other courses just require 5 credits. For Medicine and Pharmacy, Min. 5B in Maths, Additional Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Physics but will vary from university to university.
  • Recognition: Mostly in Malaysia and some overseas. As long as the Foundation course is accredited by MQA, it will be accepted by another private university for entry into the relevant degree programme.
  • Cost: Generally cheaper than overseas Pre-University courses and A-Levels

Unlike the external pre-university programmes in Malaysia which focus on more general Science and Art-based subjects, the Foundation programmes for private universities provide specialisation in specific areas of study such as business, computer & IT, or engineering, and hence, cater to the specific needs of different students.

However, there are also general Foundation programmes such as Foundation in Arts and Foundation in Science offered by the private universities.

Foundation in Science programmes can lead to engineering, pharmacy, medicine, applied sciences, health sciences and other arts related degree programmes. The Foundation in Arts programme can lead to accounting, business, computing, architecture, design, and other arts related courses. After completing the Foundation in Science students have the choice to choose sciences or arts related degree programmes.

The Foundation programmes at HELP University and UCSI University are recognised by some top universities in Australia, UK and New Zealand for entry into their degree programmes. Asia Pacific University is the only private university in Malaysia where all students will study the same subjects for the first semester and then when they figure out which course suits them, they choose the stream for their second and final semester.

Talk to an experienced career guidance counsellor in Malaysia

Look for an experienced Career Guidance Counselor or Education Advisor in Malaysia to help you. They should have years of experience in helping students in making the right choices. Some of these education advisors have no experience or are just fresh graduates working at the Agents’ Offices.

You must ask yourself how much experience would a twenty-something consultant know in counseling students? Is he or she knowledgeable about the course content, the requirements for professional accreditation, job demand, job salary, and other important information.

Students in Malaysia need to talk to the right education counselors so that you get the right information to help you in making this life-changing decision.

Ask the right Education Counselors in Malaysia to help you. Would you ask a Doctor on how to repair your car? Or would you ask a mechanic for medical advise? Although this sounds ridiculous, but many students do listen to advise from young and inexperienced counselors from universities, colleges or agents’ offices.  Talking to an experienced education advisor in Malaysia would help you to navigate through this confusing time of choosing the best course that fits you.

Experienced education counselors are able to analyse your interests, personality and exam results to help you make a list of possible courses for consideration. EduSpiral Consultant Services staff have more than 15 years experience in counseling students. Having worked in the private education industry, we have in-depth knowledge of each private university and college in what they are good at.

EduSpiral Consultant Services has worked with our partner universities and colleges for many years while the counselors at the private universities or agents’ offices change every few years therefore they would not have the in-depth knowledge of the courses and the university that they are working at.

At EduSpiral Consultant Services, I have worked in the private higher education industry in Malaysia for more than 15 years advising students with facts and evidence on how to choose the right course after SPM. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you. To choose the best course that fits you, students may fill up our EduSpiral Career Assessment form for evaluation.

The EduSpiral Career Assessment form is a simple form designed by us that gathers information from students after SPM, O-Levels, UEC, STPM or A-Levels in order to assess their aptitude helping us to determine the most suitable course and career progression.

How to Choose the Right Course to Study in Malaysia or Singapore after A-Levels?

With the wide variety of courses available to a student in Malaysia, the time after your A-Levels  can be a confusing one if not guided properly by an experienced and knowledgeable education counselor.

It can be overwhelming for students to choose the right major for their undergraduate degree studies in Malaysia.

Preparations should have been made even before this time but fear not it is still not too late if you have not decided on a career path. It is important for you to research carefully the career that you intend to pursue.

It can be confusing to choose the right course after your A-Levels in Malaysia. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you. To choose the best course that fits you, you need to consider the following:

  • Look at your results – what are your best & worst subjects, and which subjects are your favourite?
  • What are your interests & hobbies?
  • What is your passion?
  • Job demand for the career of choice. There is no point in choosing a course out of passion and then graduate to find out that you cannot get a job in that field.
  • Salary of the career of choice
  • Discuss the budget for your studies with your parents. There is no point in choosing a course like Pharmacy or Medicine, if you cannot afford it.

What to do if I failed A-Levels in Malaysia?

If you failed your A-Levels, then you will need to rely on your SPM results to continue your studies. You can consider studying in Singapore or go for Foundation or a Diploma course in Malaysia.

Students who choose to study at top private colleges in Singapore can complete the degree in less than 3 years after their SPM. Some private universities in Malaysia cost more than RM100,000 to study at and they are just famous in Malaysia so why not pay the same amount to study in Singapore and complete the degree faster and obtain a UK or Australian degree awarded by top universities?

Completing a degree at top private colleges in Singapore is the fastest pathway after SPM. Students will take 7 to 12 months to complete a Diploma and then enter into the Degree programme for another 2 years.

Students in Malaysia who are sure of what they want to study after SPM can enter the Diploma course first. The Diploma pathway in Malaysia for students after SPM is 2 or 2.5 years and then enter into Year 2 of the Degree programme.

There are many types of diploma and Pre-University courses in Malaysia & Singapore as well as hundreds of undergraduate majors to choose from. But knowing the right one for you is the most difficult decision. If you read this guide from start to finish, you’ll know the best courses in Malaysia that would suit you.

If you are not sure what to study, do ask a trained counselor and always make decisions based on evidence and facts. The decisions that you make now, can change your life forever. You can contact us for a free career test to help you understand yourself better so that you are able to make the right decision.

Choosing the Right University to Study after A-Levels in Malaysia

It is also important to choose the right university that would equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to move up in your career. Many students make the mistake of choosing the cheapest university for their studies and then later realise that they cannot get the promotion or salary increment because they did not get the skills needed. English is one of these skills that most students do not take seriously about its importance for promotion and salary increments in future jobs.

Think about it, if you are unable to write a report or email in proper English or do a presentation smoothly, how would you be able to become a manager or CEO eventually?

Help! I don’t know what course to choose to study at university- what do I do?

It is important to choose the right course to study – you don’t want to waste your time and money on a

course you don’t want to do (or end up dropping out of). To help you decide which course is right for you, make a list of courses that are of interest to you.

Is it a subject you have already studied? For example, maybe you loved the English subject and you read novels for pleasure in your own time. You can consider Teaching English as a Second Language, journalism or Mass Communication. In addition, you don’t have to do a journalism degree to become a journalist – many degrees are considered!

Maybe you’ve always been interested in computers and the internet at home, and enjoyed maths at school, so are considering a degree in computer science, a course subject you probably won’t have studied before. Experienced education counselors are able to analyse your interests, personality and exam results to help you make a list of possible courses for consideration.

Looking at your results in SPM, UEC or A-Levels could help you to decide which course you would be good at. If you are good in Maths & Physics then you can consider Engineering courses. Having good results in Chemistry, Biology & Maths, you can think of a career in Food Science, Pharmacy or Medicine. Talking to an experienced education advisor would help you to navigate through this confusing time of choosing the best course that fits you.

Many students after A-Levels make the mistake of just listening to advise without verifying whether the

Yammie Chau, Diploma in Business at UCSI University

information given is true or not. In addition, just because you have heard or seen a lot of advertisements by a particular university, doesn’t mean that it is the best in that course.

Many of the course counselors at the universities are paid by the universities to get you to register there, so their main motivation is to get you to register, not to help you make the right choice.

You should also ask yourself if you would still be interested in that subject for a further three or four years – enough to motivate yourself to work and research independently? Remember, you are going to work in this career for the next 50 years after graduation, therefore, you should have a high interest in the course.

The course that you choose should also have a job demand for you after you graduate. Choosing a course that you are passionate about without job demand and you may end up being jobless. Look for statistics and research to support whether there is a job demand for your future career in Malaysia or Singapore. Here at EduSpiral Consultant Services, we do our research on the job demand for the careers in Malaysia, Salary Reports, and universities so that we can advise our students based on facts and evidence.

Now why would you want to talk to EduSpiral Consultant Services when you can contact the private universities directly? Well, EduSpiral Consultant Services staff have more than 15 years experience in counseling students. Having worked in the private education industry, we have in-depth knowledge of each private university and college in what they are good at.

We have worked with our partner universities and colleges for many years while the counselors at the private universities or agents’ offices change every few years therefore they would not have the in-depth knowledge of the courses and the university that they are working at.

What am I good at? What am I not good at?

"I attended EduSpiral's Education Fair at KInta Riverfront after my SPM exam in December and obtained great information there. Although Asia Pacific University is famous for IT but I found out that they have a solid accounting programme and I can get a UK degree. I got a scholarship as well from APU." Julian Hum, from SMK St. Michael Institution, Ipoh studying Business at Asia Pacific University.

Julian Hum, from SMK St. Michael Institution, Ipoh studying Business at Asia Pacific University.

An undergraduate degree course in Malaysia lasts three to five years – that’s a long time to spend studying something which you don’t enjoy, especially at a more intense level! First of all ask yourself what you have enjoyed studying at secondary school in Malaysia.

Your SPM results will show what you are actually good at. Having good results in Maths, you can consider Actuarial Science, Accounting, Computing or Finance courses. Having narrowed down to these courses, you can go for the Foundation in Arts for 1 year before really choosing which one to study for your degree.

Alternatively you can also think about subjects you definitely don’t want to study at university level and which you can’t wait to say goodbye to. Crossing these off will make your list of options smaller and less overwhelming.

Your parents and friends would also be able to give you an idea of what you are good at. Looking at your hobbies and interests would help to narrow down the list. Your hobby in drawing could open the possibility of choosing design courses.

What qualifications do I have already?

You may already have an idea of the area you want to study and find a career in, which will have dictated what subjects you’re already studying at school. However it’s good to look at the qualifications and grades you have (or are predicted to have) to see what you are already eligible to study. Some students want to study medicine but in their SPM results, they only managed to get 5Cs. To study in medicine, one needs to have at least 5Bs including the science subjects. Students need to be realistic in choosing their course of study by looking at their actual results.

If your actual results do not meet the entry requirements for your particular course of interest, then you may need to consider other options or to resit the SPM exam to get the necessary results.

What are my interests?

"I went for EduSpiral's Change Your Life Education Fair at Kinta Riverfront in Ipoh after my SPM exams. Even after the fair I still had questions and he met me and my mother at Old Town to explain further. We decided to register at KDU because through much discussion with EduSpiral we found that it is the best university that fit my needs." Gary Ng (Right), Accounting at KDU University College with Jun Sern, Mass Comm

If you can’t think of an academic subject which you’re especially strong at or one which you would want to pursue at university-level, think about your non-academic interests outside of school. It’s likely that you’re much more passionate about these but you’ve never even thought you could study a course related to these (or pursue a career in this area).

Your hobbies, interests and which clubs & societies that you have joined in secondary school would give you some idea of what you are good at. These, together with your actual results would contribute to your decision-making process in choosing the right course of study.

New courses are being created all the time to prepare and develop talent for growing industries, such as animation or computer game design. Projects, events and knowledge related to these interests can all contribute to show that you’re passionate about this area and eligible to study on a course which can prepare you for a related career.

In other cases there may be several routes to your dream career, some of which may allow you to study something different before transferring or. Talk to those who are already working in this area to see how they got to where they are now, including what they studied (or even what they wish they had studied).

Decision-Making Process on How to Choose the Best Course to Study in Malaysia or Singapore

At EduSpiral Consultant Services, we have counseled and helped thousands of students to choose the right course and private university to study in Malaysia. Based on our experience we have come up with three simple steps that I will call the GEM method which will help you in your decision-making.

  1. Gather Information.
  2. Evaluate the Information.
  3. Make a Decision.

1.   Gather Information – Gather information relevant and related to your course & career of interest

A.    Gather all relevant information on the courses that interest you. Make a list of your interests, likes,

EduSpiral provides free transport to students to visit our partner universities such as the top ranked Heriot-Watt University Malaysia at the new campus in Putrajaya

strengths, hobbies and talents. Also ask your family members and friends to tell you what you are good at.

Make a simple list of your interests, your hobbies and what you are actually good at. Don’t put down things that you are interested to do but write down things that you know that you are good at. For example, you are good in debates, sports, mathematics, fixing cars, and others.

Your interests should be realistic and related to your strengths and what you are good at. For example, if you are interested in becoming an engineer but your results in Mathematics and Physics are consistently low, you may want to reconsider your choice or if you want to be a musician but cannot play any instrument, it would be an unwise move to choose music as your career pathway.

B.    Show your family members and friends the list and ask them whether you are actually good at the things you have listed.

Have your friends go through the list and give comments on how good you are at your interests, hobbies and talents. Your parents and trusted friends may give you a different perspective on what you are good at. This is valuable insight that will help you in your decision-making.

C.    Talk to your parents, uncles, aunts, cousins and older siblings who are knowledgeable or working in that field

I met EduSpiral a few years ago after completing my Diploma at LKW. I wanted to continue my degree at a better university & EduSpiral showed the number of awards won by First City UC for interior design which convinced me.

Jun Hao at his graduation showcase, Interior Design at First City University College

Your parents and older siblings may have good insights into your abilities and offer good suggestions. Ask them what talents they think you have and maybe what career options would be good for you.

Know yourself. Your SPM results is a guide of what you are good at. If you do well in Sejarah, BM and English, you can consider Marketing, Mass Comm, or Business. If you are good in Modern Maths, you can consider Business Admin, Finance or Accounting. For Add Maths & Physics, engineering, software engineering, IT, or programming.

So, choose according to what you are good at, not what you think you are good at. If you are still not sure, talk to your parents,

friends, school counselor or professionals in your field of interest to find out more.

Remember some relatives just simply share information that is not supported by facts or evidence. When asking for opinions, ask from people who are knowledgeable and experienced. Would you ask a doctor how to repair your car? If not, then do not simply listen to hearsay and gossip.

D.    Talk to an experienced career guidance counsellor in Malaysia

Look for an experienced Career Guidance Counselor or Education Advisor in Malaysia to help you. They should have years of experience in helping students in making the right choices. Some of these education advisors have no experience or are just fresh graduates working at the Agents’ Offices. You must ask yourself how much experience would a 24-year old in counseling students? Is he or she knowledgeable about the course content, the requirements for professional accreditation, job demand, job salary, and other important information.

E.    Talk to professionals in the field of interest in Malaysia

Talk to professionals in the fields that you are interested in to find out what they do. Ask them what they do in their jobs, what they like about it, what are its future prospects, what type of talents are required for the work, and other relevant questions.

Visit their place of work if possible to gain a ‘feel’ for their type of work. Talking to the professionals will help you gain a wider perspective and insight into the type of work. They will be able share with you inside information on the work.

F.     Attend education fairs in Malaysia

Vincent Hoy, Scholarship student at Asia Pacific University

Go for education fairs and talk to the lecturers and counselors but do not register to quickly. Listen to their advise and take the information and then talk to your parents. Remember that the colleges and universities want your money for their “business” so they will want you to register quickly.

Take time to think carefully and do not be taken in by the sales gimmicks of getting a car or iPad or discount if you register on the spot.

Talk to the various counsellors at the booths to find out more information about the individual careers. Ask about tuition costs,

short description of the career, job prospects, facilities offered in the college, and others.

Check with them to see if the course is accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA), if you can apply for the PTPTN loan and how much you can apply for, how long is the course, etc.

Students should also visit the university’s campus to get a feel of what the student environment is like,

look at the facilities and talk to the lecturers. EduSpiral Consultant Services provides a free campus visit to our partner universities.

G.    Use the Internet 

Google the Internet to find out in detail about your course of interest. Use these resources available to you to find out more information about the careers that you are interested in.

H. Course Content of the Degree Programmes

Even though the title of the degree programme is the same at various universities, the course content or subjects offered are different. You should look at the subjects from the universities and compare. Make sure that they are solid enough to prepare you for a successful career in Malaysia or Singapore.

2.     Evaluate the information.

I talked to EduSpiral on Facebook to find out which is the best place to study A-Levels to help me achieve my goals. I am glad I did. Gan Wei Cheng, 3A* in A-Levels at KDU College Penang and now JPA Scholarship at U. of Sydney for Pharmacy

Gan Wei Cheng, 3A* in A-Levels at KDU College Penang and now JPA Scholarship at U. of Sydney for Pharmacy

After you have gathered all the necessary information then you need to weigh your options.

Go through all the information and choose the careers that you would like to take up and take out those that you don’t like.

Make a pros and cons list for each career that you like. From the information evaluate the points carefully on its workability, your financial viability, future prospects, your interests and results.

You can make a ranking of the top choices down to the least favourable choices.

The entry requirements for the courses and the budget for your studies will also assist in making your decision.

Should you be interested in medicine but is not from the Science stream or have at least 5Bs in the SPM, then it is not possible to study medicine.

Or if you want to study medicine but do not have at least RM400,000 for the fees, then it is no point to choose this course unless you score very high and is able to get a scholarship to study in private or you take the STPM to enter into Public University.

3.     Make the decision

Nixonn Cheong, Engineering at UCSI University

After evaluating all the information that you have, now you are ready to make a decision. Decide on maybe four career choices. For example, you may want to put your first career choice as Medicine, second in Pharmacy, third in Food Science and fourth in Nutrition. When one does not work out because of grades, finances or interest then you have a back up choice.

Remember two things: It is okay to change career options during your time of study, however, you need to make informed and educated choices. Secondly, the career that you choose should meet your needs and fit your beliefs and character. You must be happy with the choice and one where it would fit your desired financial status.

  • List your strengths, what you are good at, your favourite subjects, the subjects that you do well in, etc.
  • List your weaknesses, what you are not good at, what you don’t like, the subjects that you suck at, etc.
  • List down your hobbies, interests, likes and dislikes, your personality, etc.
  • Discuss the list with your parents, teachers, counselors, or friends
  • Search the Internet for descriptions of careers and courses
  • Does the course you have chose interest you, how much is the starting salary? What does the work involve?

continued development of low cost airlines making travel available for larger shares of population and increased international tourism is projecting strong growth in the next few years.

This global spread of tourism in industrialised and developed states has produced ‎economic and employment benefits in many related sectors – from construction to ‎food or hotels.‎

This makes Malaysia an ideal location to learn a wide variety of cuisine. As our society increasingly become adept to an enriched lifestyle the taste buds become more sophisticated and a desire to consume more exotic dishes.

The culinary industry is ideal for students who possess a flair for creativity, desire to please peoples’ palates, entrepreneurial and of course, a love of food.

There are four basic skills that every chef uses throughout their career:

1. Technical
These skills are the foundation of a chef’s talent and success – knife skills, cooking methods, timing, mise en place, and being able to cook on the line gracefully even during the peak hour.

2. Culinary

Most chefs have a good palate to begin, but training for the nuances of flavor and seasoning, new flavor combinations, creative plates and presentations, delving deep in to a cuisine culture all take training and practice.

3. Organisational

Prior planning is important in a busy kitchen. Organising the menu, ingredients, staffing and kitchen will ensure a smooth running with less stress. Organising also helps in conducting business effectively (ordering, scheduling, food costing etc.).

4. Managerial

Having a keen understanding of human behavior and how to motivate them is important as one gains more responsibility. A good chef understands how to work with people and get them to work for him/her.

These skills are the highest level because they involve sharing knowledge and skills with those working for you.

The most often-seen method is training, but ultimately being a mentor to a cook and to develop their career is the highest skill a chef can attain.

Getting a Diploma or Degree in Malaysia Gets You Higher Salary


How much do Malaysians Earn?

Article taken from Khazanah Research Institute

Take a guess. What is the median monthly salary of a Malaysian worker?  Clue: it is not that high.

Data shows that the median monthly salaries & wages in Malaysia for 2013 was RM 600 more than the minimum wage, in other words, half of the Malaysian workers make less than RM 1,500 per month [average wage is slightly higher at RM 2,052]. The figure is the same regardless of gender, but if you worked in the urban areas, your median wage will be slightly higher, at RM 1,680 compared to RM 1,040 for rural workers.
These figures, sourced from the Department of Statistics, are based on wages received by full-time government or private employees, which cover basic wage, cost of living allowances and other regular and guaranteed paid allowances or overtime. However, they exclude bonuses and gratuities and other non-regular payments.

Please make sure you give a correct email address and check your email including the SPAM or JUNK email folder within 48 hours as we will email you the information. 

Getting a Degree Means Higher Salary than those with SPM or No Qualifications

The median monthly wage for those with tertiary education is the highest compared to other educational qualifications. Those with a degree would have a median wage of RM 3,890, which is 159 percent or RM 2,390 higher compared to those with SPM. The earning capability of a graduate is quite high, especially if one compares the degree ‘premium’ to high school certificates. Workers with  SPM qualifications would earn a monthly median wage of RM 1,500, or about 25 per cent higher than those with lower secondary education i.e. PMR/SRP. In nominal terms, that is a difference of RM 300 per month.

Best Paying States in Malaysia

The highest paying states, unsurprisingly, are Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur (see Chart 1).  In fact, these are the only two states where the median wages are more than RM 2,000 per month. The majority of states–ten, to be exact–pay half of their workers less than RM 1,500 per month. Even Penang, which ranked third in the list of the richest states based on GDP per capita, has a lower median wage compared to Johor and Negeri Sembilan. On the opposite end, Sabah tops the chart with the lowest median monthly wage, followed by four of the five former Unfederated Malay States.

Wage Growth in Malaysia Remains Positive

While the national median wage seems low, it is actually a 15 percent increase compared to 2010, when the median monthly wage was RM 200 lower, or at RM 1,300. In fact, the median wage outpaced the rate of inflation, which went up by seven percent during the same period. This indicates that the spending power of workers remained in positive territory, although certain consumer items, especially main food items, have gone up more than 15 percent since 2010. Rural workers were luckier compared to urban workers, where the former saw their median wage jumped by 16 percent versus 12 per cent for the latter, partly due to an increase in commodity prices and government income transfers.

Wages are Low Because Workers are Lazy?

As pointed out in the “State of Households,” Khazanah Research Institute’s inaugural publication, the low paying jobs are a partly due to the fact that majority of our workforce, or 6.6. mil workers,  is low skilled, and only a small number (24%) has post-SPM qualifications. Another key factor, which is equally important, is that firms in Malaysia, for lack of better word, pays very little to their employees.

This is clearly seen from the distribution of national income; only 32.9% goes to workers – just slightly higher compared to India, while the rest goes to owners. Compared to other countries, Malaysia’s share of wages is considered low; Singapore 42.3%, China 48%, UK 55%, and US 55.7%. The argument, henceforth, is simple; Malaysian workers’ productivity is low.  This is not supported by facts.  In fact, the opposite is true.

The recent Malaysia Human Development Report published by the United Nations Development Programme shows that “wages has not kept up with labor productivity…they began to diverge seriously…from 1996 to 2010”.  The report explains the reason why wages remain low in Malaysia; “labour’s inability to maintain its compensation relative to its productivity is possibly one reason why real wages have been stagnant…”  In other words, firms do not fairly pay the workers.

Lonnie Sik, Founder of EduSpiral, has more than 15 years of experience counseling thousands of students on how to choose the right course & university

in finding out who you are and what you are good at. An experienced Education Advisor would be invaluable in assisting you to choose the right course. Students need to talk to the right education counselors so that you get the right information to help you in making this life-changing decision.

Ask the right Education Counselors. Would you ask a Doctor on how to repair your car? Or would you ask a mechanic for medical advise? Although this sounds ridiculous, but many students do listen to advise from young and inexperienced counselors from universities, colleges or agents’ offices.  Talking to an experienced education advisor would help you to navigate through this confusing time of choosing the best course that fits you.

Experienced education counselors are able to analyse your interests, personality and exam results

to help you make a list of possible courses for consideration. EduSpiral Consultant Services staff have more than 15 years experience in counseling students. Having worked in the private education industry, we have in-depth knowledge of each private university and college in what they are good at.

EduSpiral Consultant Services has worked with our partner universities and colleges for many years while the counselors at the private universities or agents’ offices change every few years therefore they would not have the in-depth knowledge of the courses and the university that they are working at.
