Graduate Employability Management Scheme (GEMS)

Assalamualaikum Sdr Sdri Penganggur,

Ini satu article yang saya dapat dari The Malaysian Insider (dateline Tuesday 24 March 2009) oleh By Shannon Teoh berjudul "GLCs to hire fresh graduates."

PUTRAJAYA, March 13 - A Graduate Employability Management Scheme (GEMS) has been launched with hopes of reducing the current rate of unemployment among fresh graduates.

An initiative that has evolved from the Graduate Employability Enhancement Programme (Green) that was started in 2006 by Khazanah Nasional, it will now be undertaken by some 38 government-linked companies that fall under the Putrajaya Committee for GLC High Performance (PCG).

With the support of the Finance Ministry as a project under its stimulus package, Gems will see 5,000 graduates undergoing a two-and-a-half month training programme before being placed in a GLC for six months with a view towards full employment.

Another 7,000 places will be available in 2010.

In his opening speech at the launch, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said that Malaysia produces 180,000 graduates annually.

"About 60,000 do not have permanent jobs" at any given time, said Najib, who is also the finance minister.

The government had promised to create 163,000 training or job opportunities under its RM60 billion second stimulus plan that was announced on Tuesday (10 March 2009).

He also expressed confidence in the continued success of the programme, as Green had managed a 97 per cent rate of fulltime employment out of 690 who had gone through the programme with another 504 still undergoing training.

Gems is open to those under the age of 27 and who have obtained a CGPA of over 2.5 or an equivalent score in an undergraduate programme.

Nah, unemployed graduates, apa tunggu lagi. Cepat memohon. Ingat, CGPA 2.5 ke atas saja tau!

Jangan lupa pergi tengok juga apa yang ditawarkan oleh sedang membangunkan 1,000 usahawan tekno. Yang dicari adalah bakal graduan yang sedang belajar di IPTA dan IPTS dan juga graduan menganggur. Mereka akan memberi latihan dan pekej e-dagang yang sedia dengan produk-produknya sekali untuk dijual melalui
