The STAR has an interesting article yesterday. I totally agree with the writer's frustration.
Highlights of the article:
Only 20% turn up during interview after a week notice for an interview
One of 15 candidates meet min qualification (ie can converse or express themselves both in Malay and English language)
Most new hire are late to work during the first week of work
Not familiar with Office - documents or spreadsheets
It took almost half a day to draft formal letter.
Now I understand how does HR feel when they need to hire a new person.
