In recent years, Malaysia has faced a rough job market. In 2019, there will be about 170,000 graduates in the countries but there are only less than 100,000 available jobs. Less than 5% of job seekers can obtain an interview opportunity. Bearing in mind its social responsibilities, Kongzi Institute for the Teaching of Chinese Language at the University of Malaya hopes to provide more job opportunities for local residents, especially university graduates, and provide outstanding talents for Chinese companies.
