Top Jobs in Demand in Malaysia

Network engineer

Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University (APU)

I was confused about what to study & at which university. Talking to EduSpiral helped clear my doubts.
Zen Yi, Graduated from Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University (APU)


Few jobs in the IT sector can match the attractiveness of a career in network

engineering. Apart from being highly-paid, good network engineers are constantly sought after by the leading IT companies in Malaysia because of their specialisations. Network engineers who strive to be at the top of their game must undertake a certified course in networking from a recognised institution or organisation such as the MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional), MCSE (Microsoft Certified System Engineer) or CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate).

Sales executive/marketing executive
A career in sales and  marketing has proven to be a lucrative one for many employees,

both fresh and experienced, for a very long time. There is no denying the competitiveness of this area of work, but a sales and marketing executive who is prepared for the challenges that lie ahead will gain invaluable work experiences and attractive remuneration – on top of the commissions which are based on sales. The art of communicating is at the crux of the profession, therefore it is imperative for one to have commendable people skills and convincing power.

 

Accountant

Accounting graduate from Asia Pacific University (APU)

“I met up with EduSpiral about 4 times in Ipoh & at Asia Pacific University to discuss about my future. He provided me with in-depth information and even arranged for me to meet up with the Head of School at APU to talk to me.”
Kar Jun, Accounting graduate from Asia Pacific University (APU)

Accountants have been in demand for years, and will continue to be in the time to

come. The reason behind this fact is simple: accountants are useful to businesses and organisations of all sizes. They are the interpreters of financial information, which is crucial to almost every industry in existence in the world today. In Malaysia, accountants can strive to attain a professional qualification from an accredited professional accounting association such as the ACA, ACCA or CIMA for an added advantage over others.

Electrical engineer/electronics engineer
Electrical and electronics engineers form the core of various technology-led

companies in Malaysia. It comes as no surprise that the profession is still largely in demand now, and the trend is continued to increase in the next several years due to the higher enrolment of students into chemical and geological disciplines – which in turn is caused by the upsurge in the Malaysian oil and gas sector. Electrical and electronics engineers who possess solid analytical and communication skills will have a clear advantage over the others.

Human Resources executive

Human Resource Management at Asia Pacific University (APU)

Min Yi, Human Resource Management at Asia Pacific University (APU)

Human resource is a highly desired job profile, and is a lucrative career path to those

who possess the right skills set. Every organisation hires on a regular basis, and the HR department ensures that the company continues to attract quality human capital to gain an advantage over the competition. The HR executive profession is still very popular amongst graduates and is seen as the best starting point to being a HR manager in the future.

Software engineer

Telecommunication is the means of communicating through the transmission of

signals. In today’s world, it is all around us – from 3G connectivity to streaming videos to mobile downloads, and so on.

The best private universities and colleges in Malaysia have excellent facilities, years of experience running the programme, strong student support services, internships and experienced lecturers.

They are also accredited by MQA and approved by the Malaysian Ministry of Education. Accreditation by the various professional bodies such as the Board of Engineers Malaysia, Pharmacy Board, Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia, Nursing Board, Malaysian Medical Council, etc also indicates the standard achieved.

The best private university in Malaysia will focus on quality, have award winners for the particular courses, years of experience offering the particular course, highly experienced lecturers, a good study environment (not a party university), internships, good mix of international & local students, extra-curricular activities and good facilities. The SETARA ranking is a guide for students to assess the quality of a private university in Malaysia.

When choosing a university and college in Malaysia, it is important for students to visit the campus and see the facilities and feel the culture of the students to see if it fits you.

Talk to the lecturers and find out from the counselors there about the courses and check if the courses have been accredited by MQA and other external bodies like the Pharmacy Board, Nursing Board, Malaysian Medical Council, Board of Engineers Malaysia , Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia or Persatuan Arkitek Malaysia.

The environment should be one where students speak mostly in English so that you can improve your English and communication skills. If you are weak in English and choose a cheap university where the students speak mainly in Mandarin, it will be difficult for you to improve your English.
