Unemployment is on a high lately, but Malaysians have not given up just yet as they are working odd jobs that aren’t in their field of studies to overcome being jobless. And, to put a positive spin on their plight, they have decided to give new “professional” names to their odd jobs.

A viral thread which was started on Twitter by a netizen who recently got a job as a Foodpanda delivery boy now has over 14,900 retweets and more than 17,000 likes. The netizen, Eskopi shared in his tweet,

“I took five years to complete a degree in Aircraft Engineering. Alhamdulilah, I am now a Food Distribution Engineer (aka food delivery boy).”

“At least, I got to be an engineer, even though it isn’t in the same field I studied.”

Eskopi’s attitude towards his job was lauded by the netizens, and they too started sharing about their odd jobs in a thread. One netizen said that Eskopi isn’t alone because he has been a Fluid Distributor Engineer (meaning: someone who sells drinks) for two years.

Their attitudes are just amazing! 

Responses in the thread show that many Malaysians aren’t ashamed of their odd jobs even though it’s not in the field that they studied for. We hope that their attitude towards life doesn’t change and hopefully, they will get the job of their dreams in the near future. Till then, Godspeed to them.
