It’s no secret that many Malaysians lost their jobs due to the pandemic, and had to resort to any means necessary to stay afloat. Fortunately, after two long arduous years, we’ve finally arrived at the recovery stage of our nation, so all of us can slowly but surely stabilise ourselves soon enough~

One way the government has been helping us find firm footing again is by introducing more job opportunities to help us kickstart AND advance Malaysians’ careers!

As part of the JaminKerja (Jamin Kerja Keluarga Malaysia)-MyStep initiative, the JaminKerja Keluarga Malaysia Career Carnival 2022 is one of many governmental efforts to further reduce unemployment rates.

We have the Ministry of Human Resources (KSM) to thank for organising this job fair through the Social Security Organisation (SOCSO), in partnership with the Human Resources Development Corporation (HRD Corp). Malaysians in Tapah, Perak, Kuala Selangor and Hulu Selangor were able to attend the carnival from 3-4 November!


1. Behold, the carnival of opportunities!

  • AEON Co. (M) Bhd

Apart from offering job vacancies, the career carnival also provided various services for struggling Malaysians, such as:

  • Registration assistance for MYFutureJobs, with 293,878 job listings nationwide!
  • Open interview sessions with potential employers
  • Exhibition of agencies and training providers
  • Career guidance from SOCSO Employment Service Officers
  • Skills development training programmes by HRD Corp

Not only is the carnival evidence of the Government’s commitment to creating sustainable economic development, but it’s also one of the driving forces behind Malaysia’s structural recovery efforts and strengthening of the labour market. Up until today, SOCSO’s initiatives have benefitted over 310,000 Malaysians so far!

“We hope that (JaminKerja Keluarga Malaysia Career Carnival 2022) will mark the beginning of a brighter and more dynamic future for younger generations through the employment infrastructure,” said SOCSO chairman Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Sri Subahan Kamal, who was present at the Kuala Selangor series.

2. RRR: Rise & Recover in all the Right ways

Alongside Subahan at the carnival were Minister of Finance, Yang Berhormat Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, and SOCSO Chief Executive, Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Seri Dr. Mohammed Azman Aziz Mohammed, with Tengku Zafrul officiating the JaminKerja Keluarga Malaysia Career Carnival 2022 Kuala Selangor on 3 November.

“This carnival reflects the Government’s dedication to increasing employment opportunities, strengthening the labour market and further supporting the momentum of socio-economic growth of our country,” the Finance Minister said.

Thanks to governmental measures like employment incentives, the Employee Retention Programme (ERP) and Wage Subsidy Program (PSU), he explained that the unemployment rate was gradually lowered from 4.6% (2021) to 3.7% (August 2022). Awesome lah more Malaysians have better peace of mind now!

Additionally, the government’s policies also generated strong Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth for THREE consecutive economic quarters, with 8.9% in the second quarter of this year – did you know we ended up having the highest GDP in ASEAN? Great success!

“It’s safe to say that the steps taken by the government to reopen the economy in a safe and orderly manner, have driven domestic and foreign consumer demand, resulting in strong business and trade growth,” Tengku Zafrul expressed.

3. To infinity and beyond!

Nevertheless, it’s important to maintain our momentum and continue our efforts to stabilise the country. Not to worry though, because Tengku Zafrul gave us a glimpse of what the government has in store for future improvements:

  • Introduction of the MYFutureJobs Satellite Centre
    • One-stop centre for career-related services, including career counselling, profiling and activities to increase jobseekers’ employability, especially in rural areas.
    • On top of its 150 existing centres, Budget 2023 will allow the addition of 13 more Satellite Centres across the nation.

At the end of the day, Tengku Zafrul emphasised inclusivity, assuring that every measure from Budget 2022 all the way to Budget 2023 “will benefit all job seekers and youths in Malaysia.”

“So rise up, young Malaysians, and seize these opportunities!” he exclaimed. “The government has listened and understood the issues you face, and we’re looking to resolve them with Budget 2023.”
