If You're A Fresh Grad Who Is Job Hunting This MCO, These 20 Companies Are Actively Hiring

Author’s Blurb: I remember clearly how I felt as a fresh grad feeling hopeless about my future, and back then there wasn’t even the addition of the COVID-19 pandemic and the dullness of being stuck at home due to the MCO. Despite this slump though, there are still rays of light peeking through, in the form of companies who are actively hiring fresh grads in particular.

This list isn’t meant to be exhaustive as it’s simply categorised according to some different industries in Malaysia, and under each industry we’ve listed several companies each who are offering open positions to fresh graduates.

They may range from all-too-familiar names to ones that don’t make their online presence very known, but as we all say in the job hunting world, you should cast your net wide.

Who knows, you might find the job for you at some company you’ve never even heard of before.
