JobStreet.com Job Outlook 2018 Report

JobStreet.com, Asia’s leading talent sourcing partner revealed its JobStreet.com Job Outlook 2018 report, indicating that both employers and talent have a more optimistic outlook in 2018.

According to the JobStreet.com Job Outlook 2018 report, job opportunities for candidates are expected to be stronger than they were in 2017, with 30% of Malaysian employers indicating an increase in hiring activity – a 12% increase year-on-year. Meanwhile, 15% of the employers surveyed have mentioned that they will maintain their hiring rate in 2018. In addition, a notable drop in “hiring freeze” was observed by a 5% improvement from last year, affirming the growing momentum in hiring activity.

This growing confidence correlates with an increase in job postings – a 9% increase year-on-year – in which online migration of non-executive job postings contributed 3% to the overall growth.

“We see both employers and candidates sharing a more optimistic outlook towards the job market this year. The key drivers of this sentiment are the rise of start-ups, expansion of local businesses, and entry of foreign companies that will lead to job creation and the need for diversified skills. Therefore, we can expect both job hunting and hiring activity to pick up in 2018,” said Chook Yuh Yng, Country Manager of JobStreet.com Malaysia.
