PETALING JAYA: Over 13,000 job opportunities from 140 companies, including 20% open to persons with disabilities (OKU), will be offered at the launch of Housewives’ Social Security Scheme (SKSSR) and MYFutureJobs Career Carnival 2023 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre this Saturday and Sunday.
The event is organised by the Human Resources Ministry through its Social Security Organisation (Socso).
Socso said during the two-day event, housewives and jobseekers could learn more about the scheme, its benefits, the registration process, as well as consulting on job applications.
“Husbands and third parties including non-governmental organisations and private companies are encouraged to provide sponsorship and show support for housewives,” Socso said in a statement.
SKSSR was introduced last Dec 1 under the Housewives’ Social Security Act 2022 (Act 838).
All women who are Malaysian citizens and permanent residents aged below 55, including those working full-time or part-time, are eligible to sign up for the scheme.
As for MYFutureJobs Career Carnival 2023, it is Socso’s first large-scale event that aims to provide quality job opportunities, reduce the unemployment rate and empower the labour market.
Open from 9am to 5pm, it will be participated by major companies such as Maybank, BSN, Exim Bank, KTM Malaysia, ExxonMobil, UMW, UOA Group and Avisena Healthcare.
A variety of free career services are available, such as resume prep, registration for MYFutureJobs’ online portal and career guidance.
