Top 20 Skills Malaysian Employers look for
According to an article written by EVA CHRISTODOULOU for Mystarjobs recently,
the top 20 jobs listed below are highly sought after by Malaysian employers. Not only getting a degree is important, it is the necessary skills that the university and it’s environment can help you to develop to succeed in the working world.
Having the knowledge but without a good command of the English language can stop you from the getting your dream job. Some students who are not good in English still choose to study at universities where most of the students speak Mandarin because the fees are cheap not knowing that this will affect their future forever.
When I tell them about the importance of English, most say they will take an
English course to help them improve and almost all or none ever do.
Universities like UCSI University have a strong Co-Op or internship programme where students have to go for an internship for each year of their degree students. Asia Pacific University has a strong international population therefore students have a chance to communicate with students from all over the world and improve your English.
Reliance College and UCSI University sends their freshies for a leadership building camp to help build their confidence, team work and problem solving skills.
Technology, UCSI University, KBU International College, and other speak mostly in English with some in their mother tongue. This environment helps students to improve your communication and language skills, and gives you confidence to speak in public.
Don’t choose a university or college because it is cheap and where the students speak mostly in their mother tongue. Although the fees are cheap, but in this environment, you will not learn the valuable communication skills that will help you to succeed in your future career. This means a lower salary for the next 50 years of your work life. Think about it.
