KUALA LUMPUR: Twelve JobsMalaysia centres will be opened nationwide to help job-seekers secure employment, Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam said on Sunday.
He said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak would launch the centres simultaneously when he opens the centre in Cyberjaya on Thursday.
The other centres are in Port Klang and Kelana Jaya in Selangor, Johor Baharu (Iskandar Malaysia) and Segamat in Johor, Sungai Petani (Kedah), Kota Baharu (Kelantan), Ipoh (Perak), Georgetown (Penang), Kuching (Sarawak), Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) and Kuala Terengganu.
"Besides making available an online job-matching facility, the JobsMalaysia centres will also conduct interviews and establish links with employers to provide more employment opportunities," Dr Subramaniam said in a statement.
The centres would also provide career guidance and counselling, collaboration with institutions of higher learning, schools, government departments and the private sector for registration, placement and promotion of jobs, he said.
Dr Subramaniam said one objective of establishing JObsMalaysia was to promote them as centres which provided facilities free to the people to secure employment.
"We also intend to expose job-seekers to the available employment opportunities," he said.
He said he expected unemployed graduates, retrenched workers, disabled people, single mothers, pensioners, tertiary students and employers to visit the centres.
Dr Subramaniam said activities at the JobsMalaysia centre in Cyberjaya would include the online registration of job-seekers and employers, job placement programmes, involving 180 employers, and the offer of 10,000 vacancies in various categories for graduates and non-graduates. - BERNAMA
