The problem with fresh grads
PETALING JAYA - Poor attitude - including asking for too much money - is the
chief reason why employers shy away from hiring fresh graduates. Another
common complaint is that many graduates are poor in English.
A survey by online recruitment agency Jobstreet.com showed that 55% of
employers cited unrealistic expectations of salaries while 48% of them said
poor English was the main reason why Malaysian fresh graduates from both
public and private institutions remain unemployed.
"While previous surveys named poor English as the main cause for
unemployment, bad attitude has now topped the list," said its chief
operating officer Suresh Thiru.
He said their attitudes were so bad that some did not even bother to inform
the companies if they were running late or unable to attend scheduled
It was announced that the number of jobless graduates had increased from
65,500 to 71,600 although the overall unemployment rate had dropped from
3.4% last year to 3.1% during the first quarter of this year.
Another study by recruitment agency Kelly Services showed that fresh
graduates asked for flexible working hours and expected their work to
accommodate their personal life, not vice versa.
Its marketing director Jeannie Khoo said employers were also turned off by
the lackadaisical attitude and lack of drive to improve among many of them.
"They have the misconception that they can earn high salaries at
entry-level. They enter the banking industry expecting to earn RM3,000
(S$1216.5) while the market rate is only RM2,200," she said.
PricewaterhouseCoopers Malaysia head of recruitment Salika Suksuwan said
some candidates had many offers in hand but acted unprofessionally in
rejecting job offers - by not turning up for interviews or the first day at
"We sometimes have to call them and remind them about a scheduled interview
when they didn't turn up," she said.
Talent Corp CEO Johan Mahmood Merican urged fresh graduates not to make
demands on their salary.
"It is more important to join a company that can develop your skills and
prepare you for future opportunities," he said.
In a related development, Human Resource Deputy Minister Datuk Maznah Mazlan
said half of the applicants who registered with the JobsMalaysia portal
(www.jobsmalaysia.gov.my) had found employment.
Speaking when launching the Graduan Aspire 2011 employment fair yesterday,
she said about 300,000 job applicants were currently registered with the
dah baca?, iskk korang jangan la jadi macam orang-orang lain kat luar sana tu...baca tak habih tapi komen dah macam professor yang buat kajian bertahun... komen aku...
aku setuju... dari pemerhatian aku, diorang masih dibelenggu dengan pemahaman... "sekali grad atau dapat scroll, gaji beribu dah menanti"...hak hak hak... aku yang takde degree ni pun, kalau aku jadik boss, aku tetap tengok kepada attitude dan pengalaman... tu pun kalau dia apply gaji beribu-ribu... setakat beratus-ratus pun kekadang rasa rugi pasal takde "value for money", ni pulak beribu-ribu....
seharusnya, sesapa yang baru grad tu, dan diterima kerja, 3 tahun pertama, ambik pengalaman... belajar selok belok dunia baru yang korang baru masuk... jangan main terjah.... paling penting, PR skill tu kena asah baik-baik... jangan kata "aku berjawatan tinggi, aku boleh main arah aje"... silap besar...
