New app to fill one million jobs in Malaysia by end of the year
More than a million jobs across 10 industries in Malaysia are forecast to be filled by the end of the year through the recently launched app, eRezeki.
The app is the brainchild of a partnership between the Malaysia Digital Economy Corp (MDEC) and online jobs portal SlingApp.
It is part of a government programme to provide opportunities, via digital platforms, to lower-income households.
According to SlingApp co-founder Teh Tian Ji, the application will roll out various campaigns in an attempt to cater to the bottom 40% group nationwide.
He said that by end of this year, over a million successful job matches through this initiative will be created.
Furthermore, the progamme is expecting not only to fill existing vacancies, but also to enable more digital income opportunities, said Teh.
