Talent Perak app created to help job seekers in state, says MB


IPOH: Those seeking jobs in Perak can now log into a newly launched app known as Talent Perak to get all the required information, says Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad.

The Mentri Besar said on Saturday (Sept 17) that the online platform by the state government via the Pusat Aspirasi Anak Perak (Pasak) was aimed at facilitating job seekers in Perak.

“Users only need to download this app on their phones and they can search for vacant positions according to their liking.

“This app is among the continuous efforts by the state government to focus on creating and preparing for skill workers required by the industry, and the marketability of Perak graduates that can be improved,” he told reporters after launching a career carnival at Stadium Indera Mulia here.

Saarani added that this was also in line with the state government’s commitment to open new industrial areas in Perak with the increasing demand from multinational companies to open or expand their operations in the state.

“Besides that, the MOU signed between Institute Darul Ridzuan, Pasak and the Social Security Organisation will see the implementation of youth development programmes in the state.

“Through the MOU, the three agencies will work together to continue and implement programmes in the form of career development, skills training and employment data coordination.

“This will be used in maintaining the state's economic growth through the availability of talent and highly skilled labour in the state,” he added.
