from M'sian Insider...KUALA TERENGGANU, Feb 27 — Lack of industrial training and poor English are among five factors why graduates are unemployed, according to a study conducted by the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM).
Other factors are low problem-solving skills, job-hopping and lack of self-confidence, said Higher Education Ministry student development and affairs director Prof Dr Mohd Fauzi Ramlan.
He said as graduates were bogged down with poor communication skills in English, they should improve their command of the language.
“They have themselves to blame if they fail to convince employers on their potential,” he said when closing a two-day graduate etiquette programme at Universiti Malaysia Terengganu here today.
He said graduates should also avoid being choosy about jobs and shrug off bad attitude of preferring to work in ones’ hometown. — Bernama
