Online job postings decline, says report

I see jobs on Facebook. Maybe the report was biased to a certain income level?

Dateline 2016-06-07, FreeMalaysiaToday:

The rate of online job postings has dropped in Malaysia by 18 per cent over the past one year, The Sun reported.

According to the Monster Employment Index (MEI) Malaysia, which measures online job posting activities, there was an overall drop between April 2015 and April this year.

Furthermore, in April this year none of the job sectors and occupational groups witnessed any positive annual growth.

The freeze on hiring foreign workers earlier this year and the overall holding back of hiring activities by certain industries was also a factor in the drop, according to managing director Sanjay Modi.

“Sectors affected were the construction, shipping and logistics sectors, where hiring numbers have been hit as reflected in the MEI data.
