Sarawak low Internet penetration causing thousand unemployed graduates, school leavers missing on opportunities - Fatimah Abdullah.

Sarawak’s unemployed graduates and schools have not benefited much from government online job portal JobsMalaysia.gov.my due to lack of Internet access in the State said Deputy Minister in Chief Minister Office, Fatimah Abdullah.

Fatimah said despite a lot of jobs being advertised in the portal, it received lukewarm responses partly due to many job seekers in the state were living in rural areas that have no Internet access.

Fatimah said she was disappointed and saddened by the situation.

“It really saddened me as many job seekers have missed out on the information, opportunities and jobs offer advertise in JobsMalaysia.gov.my,” she said, state daily Utusan Borneo reports.

Fatimah said, she hope JobsMalaysia carnival organized by Sarawak Labour Department should be expanded to rural areas and held more frequently to help job seekers where Internet access was lacking.
