To provide a platform for employees in Malaysia to grow their skills, knowledge, and career, JobStreet Malaysia has launched seekMAX, an in-app learning content platform.

In collaboration with companies, local influencers, and international media such as Bloomberg, Microsoft, The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Complexly and more, seekMAX offers various high quality, engaging and bite-sized videos including career-related advice, industry-specific content, soft skills, and leadership ties.

Vic Sithasanan, Managing Director, JobStreet Malaysia, said, “Our bite-sized content is ideal for the busy jobseeker and furnishes them with the right tools to advance their careers. We also look forward to expanding our range of content in the coming months, as a dedicated career partner helping job seekers succeed.”

According to a recent JobStreet survey, 62% of employees in Malaysia say they are motivated to keep learning to improve themselves or their current career, while 34.4% spend 5-7 hours a week on learning and development.

Offering over 1,100 free edutainment video content in English and Bahasa Malaysia via the JobStreet mobile app, seekMAX will look to build on its success in Indonesia, where the platform was launched in 2022. Over 2.5 million users have watched over 6.5 million minutes of video on the platform, with the most popular content categories being search job search advice, career advice, salary advice, and self-development.
