Almost every object around us requires an engineer’s expertise. A highly technical profession combining mathematics and specific scientific knowledge, engineers form the backbone of a country’s development, from the construction of buildings to transport such as highways and railways.
Researchers spend years collecting data for studies in order to establish facts and identify patterns. They gather important information and statistics in the humanities, social sciences and various science and technical fields.
Architects are trained in the art and science of building design, and are responsible for turning concepts into building plans. They often work hand in hand with engineers in constructing buildings and are quite literally responsible for changing the landscape of a country.
> Chefs and cooks
Malaysians would have missed eating out during the earlier phase of the movement control order (MCO), as it can literally be considered a national pastime.

> Graphic designers
Graphic designers create visual concepts that can inspire or inform consumers. From designing newspapers to websites and even animation, most visual content you see around you has probably been designed by a graphic designer.
> Lab technicians
These skilled workers perform scientific tests, conduct controlled experiments and trials, and analyse data in a wide range of fields. In the medical field, they play an integral role in developing medication or vaccines to combat many treatable illnesses.
> Translators and interpreters
Interpreters translate simultaneously between two languages at live events with little or no aid from dictionaries or reference materials. Translators translate written documents and text. They play key roles in making other languages, including sign language, intelligible.
> Cleaners and maids
More than ever, cleaners and maids are especially significant to ensure public health and aiding in the care of a household or family. Cleaners have become vital frontliners who risk their lives to disinfect and sanitise public areas like hospitals and transportation hubs.
