JobStreet Sees Better Job Market This Year

The outlook for this year's job market seems to be positive, given that employers were more cautious last year due to the European crisis and impending general election in Malaysia, said JobStreet.com Sdn Bhd country manager Chook Yuh Yng.

"Despite all the cautiousness, we still see a high number of jobs in the market. For the first quarter of 2013 (Q1 2013), the outlook was also more positive compared with last year's," she told reporters at the 15th Malaysia Career and Training Fair here on Friday.

Chook cited JobStreet.com's Job Outlook Report, of which 36% of employers are expecting to increase their hiring in the next 12 months in Q1 2013 compared with 23% in Q1 2012.

She added that the manufacturing sector remained the top sector to offer the most jobs in the past few years, followed by ICT, banking, construction, wholesale and retail, driven by the country's sound economy.

"Malaysia is very much a manufacturing-driven country. The manufacturing sector is big, so naturally it will offer more jobs," she said.

According to JobStreet.com's Job Satisfaction Survey, 62% of jobseekers indicated that they would like to switch jobs if the opportunity arises.

Chook said jobseekers now have the opportunity, mobility and knowledge to do so.

Traditionally, job posting patterns will likely see hiring peak between March and October each year. Employers will be looking out for jobseekers in the fields of accounting, business processes (sales and marketing) and those with technical skills such as manufacturing, ICT, engineering and civil/construction maintenance.

JobStreet.com, a unit of JobStreet Corp Bhd, has 2 million jobseekers and 70,000 active employers in Malaysia on its database.
