Career Discovery Forum in Malaysia is back! Book your seats today!

Leave a Nest Malaysia would like to announce our second Career Discovery Forum in Malaysia 2019 this coming 12th October! 

Agriculture remains an important sector of Malaysia’s economy. However, there have been three main challenges faced by the agriculture sector in Malaysia. The first challenge is the domination of aging farmers. More than 60% of farmers are at the age of 60 years old and above. This subsequently led to the second challenge where there is a gap between farmers and technologies as these aging farmers are facing difficulty in adopting modern technologies to assist them. In addition, lack of interest in agriculture sector by young people  is also another challenge faced by Malaysia these days. 

To overcome this, the government has taken initiative to implement agriculture science in schools so that the students can make agriculture as their career, while also promoting IR 4.0 and AI in future agriculture sector. The arrival of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0) is inevitable and as a traditional sector, agriculture needs to adopt innovative technology and solutions to increase the yield and remain competitive. The speed of technology adoption in the agriculture sector will also determine whether Malaysia is able to boost the economy and provide relevant jobs for graduates in the coming years.

Are our graduates brave enough to challenge as modern farmers? What kind of jobs are needed to raise the standard and quality of agriculture sector in the future? Can the available technology cope with future needs?

We would like to invite students, graduates, job seekers and researchers from all fields to discover future career path and unravel the road not taken in the agricultural sector with us this October.
