KUALA LUMPUR – Although the unemployment rate in Malaysia fell from 4.5% to 3.6% in September this year, it is still a cause for concern, especially among fresh graduates, educationists warn.

Normahfuzah Ahmad, a lecturer at Universiti Utara Malaysia, told The Vibes that among the reasons for the unemployment rate among degree holders was because they lacked the necessary communication and soft skills.

“I think among the main reasons is because of the language barrier and their poor ability to speak English,” she said. 

Also, she said, students often lack critical thinking skills.
