Fresh Grads Can’t Get Jobs Because of their Attitudes?

So the youth unemployment rate in Malaysia has breached the 10% mark, more than three times the national unemployment rate and many are quick to point out that this is not down to a lack of jobs in the market.

Founder & CEO of Wobb, Derek Toh shares his thoughts on the article and how youths and employers out there can up their appeal and desirability in each others’ eyes.
