Among the initiatives supported by JobStreet.com for students of these institutions are career workshops, career counselling, resume clinics and employer networking events designed to groom and develop the skills needed for tomorrow.

The collaboration will see the sharing of information between JobStreet.com and DPCCE in the areas of graduate employability trends, job market trends and more.

A deep dive by JobStreet.com into employment data revealed that polytechnic graduates are largely employed in top industries such as:

  • Manufacturing
  • Hospitality & Tourism
  • Food & Beverage

JobStreet.com Malaysia country manager Gan Bock Herm said in a statement: “We look forward to working closely with the student ambassadors and Corporate Industry Services & Employability Centre (CISEC) officers in preparing graduates who are ready for the workforce of today and tomorrow.
