Youth are advised to learn technical skills before planning on career paths

Johor Education Sector with the help of Unit Swadaya Insan Johor (SIJ) collaborated in finding out ways to fulfil the vacancies available in industrial sectors in the state.

Industrial sectors such as manufacturing, oil and gas, agriculture, retail, hospitality and tourism are facing problems as there are too many foreign workers and what they need are local specialists to handle highly technical skills work.

The Education & Career Programme Series 4 / 2018 held in SMK Mohd Khalid Johor Bahru recently after Unit Swadaya Insan Johor successfully launched their first series at Batu Pahat followed by Kota Tinggi and Pontian. The programme was officiated by Dr S Ramakrishnan, Johor Consumerism, Human Resources and Unity Committee Chairman.

He said that low achieving students to not get worried in finding a job, but that they should join the local college or skills training centre to learn technical skills and develop their creativity and innovative skills.
