Why Is There A Mismatch Between Grads And Jobs?

We delve into the issue of unemployment in Malaysia, following conversations on social media about how graduates are finding it increasingly difficult to get the jobs they studied for. First, we look at whether there’s a gap between courses in university, and what the job market is actually looking for. Then, we look at what policies we need to implement in order to tackle this issue.
