It is sort of a dream job in Malaysia — to work with Government (to join the government’s forces).
It is a reality that being a civil servant, you get more benefit than those who work in the private sector.
The benefit of being a civil servant:
- Health Care
- Easy loan application
- Easy to buy a house/car
- Year end bonus (this is changeable)
- Cost of Living Allowance
However, how does one get the chance to work with the Government?
First of all, you have to apply for the positions that are suitable according to your academic qualifications. For example, if you are have SPM qualification, be sure to apply jobs that require only SPM qualification. The higher the academic qualification, the better the positions for you to apply.
You can check out the positions available through the newspapers or through the internet.
Normally, there are two ways to submit your application.
- Get the job application form from the nearest Government agency (PSD or any related agencies), fill in the form and submit directly to the person at the counter.
- Fill in an online job application form and submit online as well.
What do you do now, after you have submitted your application? You have to wait for some time. It might be a few weeks, a few months and even a few years (yes, this is the reality). If you are lucky enough to be one of the selected candidates, you will be called for an interview.
After the interview, you will have to wait for the final result. Either you will be chosen or not chosen.
The best part is you can apply for the positions suitable for you all year round (basically anytime of the year). Even if you have applied for a job that is currently not available, you might stand a chance to be chosen once there is a vacancy. The key is to keep on trying and improving yourself through education, if possible, if you want to work with the Government.
