Need advise. Chances of getting a job?

Hi Members,

I am a Sri Lankan national married to a Malaysian. I have recently relocated to Malaysia (Johor), after years of employment in the Gulf.

As I see KL having more job openings than in Johor, I still have doubts whether or not companies in KL hire foreigners like they did before? Will I stand a chance?
I hold a Diploma in Business Management with experience in Low Voltage Switchgear business and I am 41.

I am willing to relocate to KL even for a job hunt but before that, do you see foreign recruitment still in place? Apart from qualification and experience, what are the odds I need to consider? On the Visa side, I am on Spouse visa and am free to engage in employment.

Please excuse me if my question may seem awkard but would respect your inputs.

Thanks

Hi there.. they are still hiring and will continue to hire as well.. alot ally of foreigners in Kl.. another thing is you are having spouse visa so companies will be happy to take you as they dun have to waste time on work visa.. so Yea, you can happily go and source out for a job in kl

Thanks for your response Mr Ganesh. I will sure consider a hunt.

There are a couple of areas where foreigners can't be employed because there are sufficient local talents - http://expat-my.com/expatriate/applicat … /appendix/
