Ans: Thanks for visiting my blog. Malaysia is at full employment with an unemployment rate of 2.9 per cent in November 2012 (Department of Statistics [DOS], Malaysia). Given this positive economic scenario, Malaysia's dependency on foreign workers is unavoidable, The government, through Talent Corp, has made forays overseas to recruit Malaysian professionals to return home to serve the country, but has met with limited success. The government is looking at what is available at home and find ways to attract foreign workers into the labour market, particularly those with tertiary education.
2. G.S.S: I went across your blog on internet and found it excellent. I have one query too but I did not know how to put it on blog so I am emailing you. I hope you can help me out. I am a software engineer at Delhi and my company is sending me to Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) as onsite professional for Malaysian Airlines. They are paying me 4k RM along with indian salary component which will be credited in India itself. I am married and my wife is working as a Chartered Accountant in India and getting 6 lacs per annum. She has just 2 months of experience post CA passing. I want to know if she will be able to get a job in KL in accounts/finance field easily? If yes, how much salary can she expect? I would appreciate you replying to my email as this may decide whether I should go to KL or not.
Ans: Thanks for visiting my blog. Malaysia is slowly but surely emerging as a regional financial hub. Its proximity to Singapore and presence of major multinational banks and financial institutions are helping the country to emerge as an international financial centre. There are lots of jobs available in the field of finance and I am sure your wife will be able to find one. I suggest her to start searching a job from India itself so that once you reach there, you don’t have to take pains. I also advise her to go through a course on Islamic banking which will increase her job confirmation chances.
