Human Resources Ministry to come up with list of critical jobs

KUALA LUMPUR: The Human Resources Ministry Is preparing a list of jobs categorised as critical, as a guideline for students in choosing courses to further their studies at the tertiary level.

Minister M. Kula Segaran (pix) said this was because the Fourth Industrial Revolution required certain sectors of employment that focused on technical skills.

“About 30% of the existing jobs may probably no longer be relevant in the future,” he told reporters after the 2019 Socso Quality and Innovation Awards ceremony, here today.

Kula Segaran said the process of preparing the list also involved cooperation from several government departments and the World Bank.

He said parents should also be informed about the list to help their children choose the right course that had greater job prospects.

“94% of students pursuing vocational and technical education have better chance of securing employment, in fact more than one employer will be willing to offer them job opportunities,” he said. - Bernama
