Zaqy Mohamad on Fortitude Budget

(Updated: )

Help is at hand for fresh graduates and mature workers facing a tough job market, said Minister of State for Manpower Zaqy Mohamad in Parliament on Friday (Jun 5) during the debate on the Fortitude Budget. Fresh graduates can look forward to traineeships in sectors with good prospects such as financial services and in specialised areas like sports nutrition and social work. As for mature workers, Mr Zaqy encouraged them to consider getting training as well, to switch to new careers. Employers will get incentives to hire trainees through eligible programmes.
