This those without a job is higher among people

article talks about statistics, factors, effects and ways to solve jobless
issues among graduates in this country. The author is optimistic about this issue
as jobless graduates have been among the significant worries of the world
recently that should be settled rapidly.

            There are several statistics
of youth unemployment, including those who have just freshly graduated. The
amount of youth unemployment which is between the ages of 15–24 is a bigger
number. A survey in 2015 found youth unemployment in Malaysia has reached 10.7 per
cent in 2015, which is three times the national unemployment rate of 3.1 per
cent. Next, the ratio of those without a job is higher among
people who have a tertiary education than among those who do not have a
tertiary education. According to the Ministry of Education, the unemployment
rate of youth with higher education is 15.3 per cent compared to those with no
higher education at 9.8 per cent in 2015.

            Next, factors affecting unemployment
among graduate are lack of job skills and poor communication
skills.  Graduates find it challenging to
hunt for employment upon graduation as they are lack of job skills.  Mismatch between supply and demand conditions
for graduate employment, reflecting a supply driven education system with
relevance to labour market conditions. For example, the employers do not need
the skill that the graduates have. Furthermore, graduates are lack of communication

            Moreover, unemployment in a country
will have an impact on the economy.  The
“underground economy” would have a tendency to develop with the
developing joblessness among the young, particularly graduates.  We will have more individuals going to
industries that are known as “disrupters”, where technology is used to convey
to the public products and services at a reasonable price.  Moreover, it would affect Government

            Last but not least, there are
various ways to overcome unemployment problems among graduates at this
time.  Malaysia has to increase the value
chain in its production methods and reduce the dependency on foreign workers.
For example, government can think of a plan where organizations will get
incentives if they employ local people and tax them seriously if they get
immigrants to do the work.

            We partially disagree with the
author about the factor of the jobless graduates. Many graduates today become jobless
because lack of experience, not because of poor communication skills. Every
education sector will provide their student with the basic communication skill
in their syllabus. For some employers, working experience may matter more than
a student’s major or grade-point average. The work environment now requires
graduates to have some working experience to ensure employers sustain their
economic competitiveness. According to JobsMalaysia director, Mustafa Kamal
Bawaihi (2017), “So the numerous new graduates, which compensate for most
of the 3.4 per cent joblessness rate, with outstanding academic qualification
and ability are not selected because they lack experience. Not because they
lack the skills.” We also disagree with the author about employers tend to
hesitate when hiring fresh graduates because they do not reflect the current skill
curriculum requirements. Every tertiary education nowadays had included all the
skills in curriculum based on the employers needed and current job demand

            To recapitulate, we reaffirm our
stand with the author to moderate the need on foreign labours to solve unemployment
problems among graduates in our country today. However, we firmly believe that
poor communication skills and reflected current skill curriculum requirements
are not major factor of this issue. Therefore, the problem of unemployment
among graduates can be solving immediately if all parties work together to
overcome this problem.
