The COVID-19 pandemic in Malaysia is part of the ongoing worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease. It is caused by virus SARS-CoV-2. The virus was confirmed to have reached MALAYSIA in late January 2020, when it was detected on travelers from China arriving in JOHOR via SINGAPORE.

Since then, it has stayed and showing no let-up towards reducing its pace. Government actions in curbing the widespread has lead to many initiatives and the global impact caused by the pandemic has affected global economy and closer to home the Malaysian economy. Linked directly, as more and more business enterprises showing signs of slowing down and winding up, more employees are seeing pay-cuts and some loss of jobs. Some have already resigned to the fact that it is time for change.

Loss of employment is just one issue: the more concerning worry is the plight of undergraduates and fresh graduates who just completed their engineering degrees and are now seeking employment. In this webinar, the speaker shall share his views on the dilemma of graduates and offer some way forward to alleviate the challenges faced by the graduates.
