A recruitment fair in Taipei has attracted 15 companies from Malaysia with the aim of encouraging Malaysian graduates to consider pursuing careers in their home country, according to Focus Taiwan. The job fair will be primarily targeting approximately 2,000 Malaysian students currently studying in Taiwan.
The increased recognition of Taiwanese qualifications in Malaysia, as of January this year, has improved the prospects of students graduating from universities in the region. “The companies scheduled to take part in the fair recognise the hard-working spirit of the Taiwanese people and believe that Malaysian students educated in Taiwan have a similar quality, along with a broadened international outlook,” said James Lau, vice president of the Malaysian Chamber of Commerce in Taipei.
Malaysia faces many recruitment challenges if it plans to meet its target of doubling its skilled workforce by 2020. Recently, the Pakistani High Commission has been in discussion with the Malaysian government about increasing the number of job opportunities for Pakistani workers. Workers from Myanmar, however, have recently fled the country following attacks and violence against them in Malaysia.
