KUALA LUMPUR, Mar. 4, 2021 – The Covid-19 health crisis and continued lockdown in many markets is posing unparalleled challenges to people and businesses around the world.

“We can, yet, see the job market recovering and presenting many opportunities across various sectors even though Malaysia’s GDP is expected to have shrunken by between 3.5% to 5.5% in 2020”.

On a monthly basis, ManpowerGroup monitors several job boards in Malaysia to examine market developments. Though with varying degrees of volume, talent is needed across all skillsets.

But, applying for a job can be a difficult and daunting task for many especially in a pandemic. With that in mind and decades of expertise in the Malaysian job market, ManpowerGroup Malaysia developed Post Pandemic Job Hunting Guide to help job seekers land successful careers.

The Post Pandemic Job Hunting Guide is a valuable resource for job seekers right now. It provides:


  • Tips for Cover E-mails. A strong cover e-mail can be the key to getting a foot in the door. If job seekers don’t get the cover e-mail right, they may never get the opportunity to attract the attention of employers with information about the candidate’s suitability for the new role.

  • Tips for Resumes.Whether a fresh grad, a professional looking for growth, or someone who wants to have a career switch, how job seekers can get resumes to stand out from the competition? In many ways, a resume is the first step toward a future career, as it’s usually the first thing a hiring manager sees. It’s important to make a good impression by presenting a clean and concise resume that details your qualifications for the open role.

  • LinkedIn Techniques. LinkedIn profiles allow presenting of professional skills to millions of hiring managers. Not only is it a great way of networking with professionals in a chosen industry, but it can also be used to promote achievements and build up a professional online presence. The key to using LinkedIn effectively is to make sure the profile is 'discoverable' to employers and agencies.

  • Recruitment Agencies. The competition in the market is intense and finding a job has become tougher than ever especially in this pandemic. So, having correct guidance and support through a job search can create a huge difference. This is the advantage of reputed recruitment agencies because they are accountable to facilitate the hiring process for candidates and provide the best fit for a vacant position.

  • Upskilling. Perhaps one of the most dramatic impacts of the pandemic has been the unprecedented numbers of laid-off employees and high unemployment rates. It accelerated the need for re-skilling and upskilling. The guide shares several useful portals to gain knowledge and stay up to date with developments.

  • Handling Rejections. Being turned down for a role in many cases has an emotional impact on individuals. The guide shares tips on how to handle such situations and turn them into an advantage for future opportunities.
