SOCSO develops ‘job portal’ to help job seekers find employment
The Social Security Organisation (SOCSO) is developing “Job Portal” as part of efforts to help job seekers to find suitable employment. Its chief executive officer Datuk Seri Mohammed Azman Aziz Mohammed said the system, to be fully operational in October, would be able to help more than 50 per cent of the individuals looking for employment. Once it is up and running, users only need to fill in certain information before a list of suitable jobs will be displayed.
“Yes, there are many other portals are like that, but our system is different and better than the existing ones. Many parameters are provided in this system, for example, the type of jobs, location, qualification and type of training required by job seekers,” he told reporters in Alor Setar today. Datuk Seri Mohammed Azman said SOCSO would also provide guidance to low-skilled job seekers by helping them to prepare resume, counselling and finding suitable employers for them.
