Skilled professionals are in demand in Malaysia, with some industries being considerably more pronounced than others.

According to the Kelly Services 2014/2015 Malaysia Salary Guide , “the skilled talent pool in Malaysia is at 27 percent – far off from the estimated requirement of 45 percent to meet the national agenda of a high income nation by 2020.”

The good news is, with higher demand, comes increased standard of wages. In the past 12 months, there has been a spike in wages, with the banking and finance sector benefitting from the highest spike of 10 to 25 percent in monthly wages, followed by the sales and marketing sector which benefitted from 10 to 20 percent spike, the logistic and warehousing sector with a 10 to 15 percent increase, the engineering sector went up to 10 percent while information technology with five to 10 percent spike in wages.

The Malaysia Salary Guide also lists down a whole number of jobs with an indication of what the average salary range should be, according to placements made by Kelly Services Malaysia.
