Seeking jobs in the new normal

IT’S back to business, but not business as usual yet.The conditional movement control order (CMCO) has allowed businesses to open again to recover the economy.

But it’s still an uphill battle for those who are seeking jobs or recently made jobless.

In fact, more have become unemployed, with the unemployment rate rising to 3.9% in March from 3.3% in February.

This is the highest rate recorded since June 2010 when it stood at 3.6%, according on the latest data from the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM) on Friday.
