Jobstore.com also identified the 10 most in-demand job categories of 2018-2019, as follows:

  • Sales & marketing

  • Customer service
  • F&B/tourism/hospitality
  • Art/design/entertainment

Carmen Chong, General Manager, Jobstore.com, said: “The report highlights that the acceleration of digital transformation creates an indistinguishable border between tasks performed by humans and those by machines and algorithms, thus causing major changes to the current global job landscape.”

As the job market becomes more complex and ever-changing, familiarising with the trends has become an essential step in order to keep up with it’s progression.

Through all the significant emerging trends, the report revealed top three, which are:

  • The hybridisation of jobs in Malaysia. This has become a trend in transforming the job market and changing what employers look for in prospective employees.
  • Digitising to enhance competitiveness, strengthen growth and increase productivity. Malaysian employers are investing in digitising companies to enhance their global competitiveness, strengthen growth and increase productivity while creating high value-added jobs instead of relying on foreign labour.
  • Agility and innovation. Agile talents are becoming more in-demand as start-up companies are in constant competition to create new and innovative products and services for better customer experience.
