Sharing is caring :)

The future potential job demand and salary is one of the criteria that students look for when choosing the course to study. With the rapidly changing technology landscape, the job market is so different from how it was many years ago. When it comes to choosing a career, you should consider the occupations that will be the most essential and relevant in 10 or 20 years, and try to avoid the ones that are likely to be replaced by automation or artificial intelligence. While we can’t predict the future, here are ten occupations and their related course of study where highly specialised and experienced individuals will be in great demand.

I thank life for happening, thank every twist and turn, I believe that there is a reason for every single thing, a reason for every worry and concern.

马来西亚前5所顶尖牙科系大学

Sharing is caring :)

你是否也有当牙医的梦想?对牙医学有兴趣,但又不知道高中毕业后的路该怎么走?希望这篇文章会对你起到帮助

为什么选修牙科系?

选择牙科学的好处

1. 优厚的薪资

首先,你可能会对牙医所能收获的薪资感到惊叹。根据自身的能力,牙科系毕业生通常都会在完成学业后获得一笔可观的收入。

2. 市场需求量大

不得不提,牙科系是近年来市场上需求量最高的科系之一。随着国家的人口增加,人民们对牙医的需求量也越来越大。

3. 接触不同的人

再来,身为一名牙医每天工作时有机会接触到不同人,并能扩大人脉和体验社交的乐趣。身为一名牙医让你有机会学习如何与不同人相处,每天都需要与陌生人和同事们交流以及沟通,让你每天过上充实的生活。

选择牙科学的短处

1. 一样的日常

众所周知,牙医几乎每日都做着有规律的工作。对有的人而言,反复相同的工作性质相对而言会有些无聊,因此缺乏刺激和接触新事物的新鲜感。

2. 高学费

此外,众所周知牙科学的学费不低。完成整个牙科学的学费金额绝对不便宜,对于经济方面有困难的学生而言,这将会是个难题。

3. 与人相处

如上面所述,牙医每天都需要见不一样的客人。这虽然是个优点,但同时也兼具了挑战性。身为一名牙医需要有足够的耐心和时刻保持专业态度才能取得成功。

学习牙科须具备的关键技能

  • 注意力高度集中 – 身为一名牙医你需要能注重每个小细节,并且能够时时刻刻全神贯注在治疗上
  • 亲力亲为 – 牙医显然需要具备良好的手动技能,因为在进行每项治疗时他们都需要用到双手。因此,你应该对你灵巧的手动技能抱有信心。
  • 沟通能力 – 在医疗领域工作很常需要你与人交谈,这当中包括了同事以及客户。所以杰出的沟通能力是保持良好关系的主要因素之一,这样一来还能间接塑造优良的工作环境。

Public Relations Degrees in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)

What is Public Relations?

Public Relations (PR) is a strategic communication process initiated by companies, organizations or individuals to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with stakeholders. The main objective of PR is to build and maintain a positive image of a brand or organization in the eyes of the public.

Public Relations specialists develop communication plans and utilize media to create and sustain a positive brand reputation and a strong relationship with their target audience and key stakeholders including customers, partners, investors, employees, etc. 

Unlike advertising, Public Relations does not work with attractive paid promotions. They often promote a business, product, idea or accomplishment by using editorial content appearing on television, radio shows, newspapers, websites, magazines or blogs.

Types of Public Relations

Media Relations

Media relations focus on the relationship between the company and the media. They often use various media outlets such as press and interviews to deliver the company’s message to their desired stakeholders. The goal is to generate positive coverage of your company or your product.

Investor Relations

Investors are essential for the success and growth of a company. Thus, this type of Public Relations is responsible for managing investor events, releases financial reports, regulatory filings and press releases as well as manages queries from analysts and media.

Public affairs

Public affairs are about building and developing relations between an organisation and politicians, governments and other key decision-makers. They work on how a company engages with the government authorities and the government’s institutional and policy systems.

Community Relations

Society plays a major role in deciding a business’ future. An organization needs to create a positive image of the brand by supporting social practices such as recycling, avoiding child labour, offering child education, equality and environmental protection.

Internal Communication

Employee relations is all about giving employees a positive view of the company they work for. Organizing employee events, conducting programmes to keep employees informed about the company’s changes and consulting on their responsibilities are some of the initiatives carried out by Public Relations to ensure employees are satisfied and motivated in the company. 

Customer Relations

Customer relations refer to the ways a company interacts with its customers to develop the customer experience. Interaction with existing and potential consumers is essential to gain information on interest and prioritise through their feedback, suggestions. 

Marketing Communication

Public Relations utilize social media platforms to reach and promote a company’s reputation and gain immediate positive results. The use of social media is very useful, especially for brands to connect with customers and demonstrate outstanding customer service.

Importance of Public Relations in companies

Trust plays a major role in determining the success or downfall of businesses regardless of what industries it is. Public Relations are responsible for improving the credibility of a company’s audience through a range of significant Public Relations strategies such as networking strategies, influencer connections and marketing campaigns. 

An organization with a good reputation generates potential customers to find their way right to the company’s doorsteps. Public Relations experts help to craft the right messages to resonate with a company’s target customers in a way that impacts them. This will produce more leads for businesses, increasing sales, and bringing bigger profits. 

Public Relations are also important in enhancing staff morale. Public Relations campaigns held within an organization are able to improve communications and motivate employees to perform their task efficiently. Public Relations also keep all employees updated and informed about the company activities and strategic plans and encourages feedback from employees. This will make employees feel that they are an important part of the organization and makes them more dedicated to the company and more productive in performing their duties.

Examples of Public Relations Campaigns

Coca Cola: Share a Coke

The “Share a Coke” campaign was launched in Australia in 2011, whereby the traditional wrapping around the Coca-Cola bottle was changed with the phrase share a Coke with…’ and a random popular name. The campaign encouraged people to find bottles with names that they have a personal connection with and share them with friends and family, then tweet about their story using the hashtag #ShareaCoke. This resulted in the growth of Coca cola’s Facebook community by 3.5% and about 29,000 hashtags were used on Twitter. 

Google’s Fight Against Ebola

Google launched a campaign promising to donate $2 for every dollar people give to organizations fighting Ebola after the outbreak in the western countries became world news. Google ensured that the donation will be raised to fight Ebola and to help provide the necessary medical attention to some of the poorest regions of the world. As a result, Google was able to maximize its positive branding as the company raised $7.5 million throughout the campaign. 

Stabilo Boss – Highlight the remarkable

Stabilo received an amazing response on social media as they launched a campaign highlighting women who played important roles in history and were not noticed. Stabilo took photos from historical moments and drew a yellow highlight line to expose the woman in the photo that played an important role. 

The campaign featured Katharine Johnson, a NASA mathematician who was responsible for the calculations that sent Apollo 11 to the moon. The campaign also highlighted Nobel Prize winner Lise Meitner and First Lady Edith Wilson. As a result, the campaign was a huge hit on social media and went on to win multiple awards.

ALS Association – ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS #Icebucketchallenge is one of the most well-received and memorable campaigns as it had such a massive impact on social media. Not many were aware of the ALS disease until people started pouring ice buckets over their heads on social media. Many of the high-profile people including Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey stepped into the challenge, making the campaign a success with over 2.4 million videos online and more than $115 million dollars donated to the foundation.

Skills Needed to Become a Successful Public Relations

Communication skills

It is vital for Public Relations professionals to possess excellent oral communication and presentation skills as the job requires dealing with your clients, media buyers, and journalists who expect a professional and clear delivery of information.

Creative thinking

Public Relations professionals will have to come up with creative ways of promoting business and approaching new clients during their job. Public Relations always generates new ideas to be successful in their career. 

Social Media skills

Social media platforms entail different strategies of marketing as each platform vary in terms of functions and who use them more often. Thus, Public Relations professionals will need to be familiar with various social media platforms and able to use them to their fullest potential.

Research skills

Public relations professionals always interact with many clients from different industries. Thus, they need to conduct comprehensive research about their market and brand to accelerate the process of relationship building.

Everything you Need to Know to Become a Graphic Designer in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)

Have you had the knack of just scribbling and doodling while studying or even when you’re listening to a lecture? Many of us push those silly doodling aside and pursue something much more serious for our tertiary education. But do you know, according to Malaysia’s critical occupational list 2020, graphic designers were among the top 10 most demanded jobs in Malaysia?

 However, although acquiring the essential skills, the creativity that fuels art, a particular foundation is needed for a designer to succeed in the field. Therefore in this article, we will list everything you need to know about becoming a graphic designer in Malaysia.

What is Graphic Design?

Graphic design is a profession where graphic designers often create visual content to communicate their message to their targeted audience. They use typography, illustrations, symbols and colors to create a visual representation of ideas.

For example, when you’re visiting a local grocery store, just stand and look around, there would be plenty of items that have various colors and designs. Most of the time, there will be one product that catches your eye even when it’s new, that is how important a role graphic design plays in our everyday life. 

Graphic design optimizes an organization/clients marketing efforts across all marketing channels. This dynamic and exciting field opens up opportunities in various industries where you’ll get to exercise your creativity and personality through graphics.

What are the Skills Needed to Become a Graphic Designer?

Creativity: The most fundamental skill needed to survive being a graphic designer is creativity. Graphic designers need to be creative thinkers as they will be frequently asked to come up with ideas that are conveyed through text and images. For example, they might have to promote a company’s mission through a website or design an image that helps sell products, all of this involves creative problem-solving skills 

Communication: In this work line, you’ll be meeting plenty of clients and customers that always change their mind about the designs. You’ll need to be able to communicate well to pass the ideas/message to your clients. 

Besides that, being a graphic designer means you’ll be working with many of your team members from different departments. It’s crucial that you can communicate well in order not to give out the wrong message. It’s definitely a plus point if you’re able to communicate and work well with others as it will send out a statement that you’re a team player.

Presentation Skills: Along with communication, presentation skills also play a crucial part in a graphic designer’s life. As you board on projects, your clients will be expecting you to present to them your ideas from the very beginning to the end of the project. Therefore, having it’s not an option to have cold feet during a presentation as it might 

Patience: As a graphic designer, you’ll be asked to make multiple changes to your designs even though it might not make sense. Sadly, it is your job to comply with your clients to ensure that they are given what they have asked for. 

Technology: Graphic designers need to be on their toes and master various forms of technology as it’s constantly updated. They have to be comfortable using multiple different designing software such as Adobe. 

Time Management: Many graphic designers are constantly juggling between multiple projects, therefore time management is very crucial in this industry. Graphic designers should be able to multitask, juggle several projects at a time and meet all the deadlines.

Who Should Study Graphic Design?

If you want to be your own boss: Most graphic designers work as freelancers after several years of working with firms. They acquire the working experience and start off later by working by themselves as freelance designers and eventually becoming advisors for companies. 

If you want to get paid for being creative: Graphic designers get paid for expressing their creativity, although it might sound easy, it’s not. A graphic designer always needs to ‘think outside of the box’ to solve briefs as they can’t repeat the same design.

If you’re someone who gets bored quickly: Life of a graphic designer is never dull as you’ll always be up with a new challenge. You could be designing menus for a restaurant one day and the next, creating layouts for a mobile app. 

If you want to work in a wide range of industry: Every industry needs visual communication and good graphic designers. There are endless possibilities for graphic designers to work either with clients or organizations. 

What are the Common Subjects Taught in Graphic Design?

Graphic design is a very wide course to pursue, which can lead you to endless possibilities and job opportunities. Only being equipped with creativity is definitely not adequate to get through to becoming a graphic designer as they hold the responsibility of creating powerful visuals that more often need more skills. There are various factors that play a role in producing a good quality of visual such as typography, colour schemes, fonts, word choices and many more. 

Here are some common subjects that are taught throughout the Diploma and Degree program of Graphic Design:

  • Advertising Principle
  • Creative Thinking
  • History of Arts
  • Photography
  • Typography
  • Web Design
  • Principle of Drawings

Career Paths for a Graphic Designer

  • Art Director: Takes charge of the visual style and content in magazines, newspaper, and product packaging. They create designs and direct other artists to develop each contributing piece. 
  • Creative Director: Determines the creative vision of a project. They make sure the overall look stays on track by leading their team through the steps to create something such as an advertising campaign. 
  • User Experience (UX) Designer: Work to make products, processes and services seamless and enjoyable for users. They often think about how the product feels and how the users will use it.
  • Marketing Specialist: Collects and analyzes data on target customers, initiates marketing campaigns, measures the effectiveness of marketing and creates strategies to promote the company’s product or services.

To officially become a graphic designer, it usually takes around 3 years after completing Pre – University (foundation, A-Levels, etc). However, students can also opt into signing up for a Diploma program which takes roughly around 2 –  2.5 years to complete and provides a direct entry into Year 2 of the degree program. The advantages of taking a Diploma program is that upon completion, students would have the choice of either joining the working industry or progress into a Graphic Design degree program with a direct entry into Year 2.

It’s a common misperception that early childhood education is only about learning essential skills. But it is much more than that, it’s a time when children learn crucial social and emotional skills and a partnership is formed between the child, parents and teachers. When this is done successfully, it lays the groundwork for continuing growth throughout the child’s education. 

 

What is Early Childhood Education?

Early childhood, defined as the period from birth to eight years old, is a time of remarkable growth, especially with brain development at its peak. During this stage, children are highly influenced by the environment and the people that surround them.

Early childhood educators must be able to communicate with young learners on their level, including being able to break complex subjects into easily digestible pieces. They must be able offer details about classroom progress to parents so they are aware of their child’s performance and achievement level. Communication helps parents identify teachable moments in everyday situations and boost their child’s kindergarten readiness.

Communication Skills: Communication is vital as an early childhood educator. Not only on the basis of communicating the progress of children to their parents but they should also be able to understand and communicate with the children on their level

Organizational Skills: While it might look easy taking care of a bunch of kids, managing a classroom of young kids on sugar rush requires more organizational skills than you require. You’ll need to show up with your lessons planned with your props and always be on the lookout for the kids to in case something happens.

Patience: Children are the epitome of the energizer bunny, they’re full of energy and never seem to run out of it. They could be running even when the class is being conducted therefore being an early childhood educator requires a lot of patience.

 

Why Should You Study Early Childhood Education?

Being around young kids is definitely challenging, as they are not easy to manage. In Early Childhood Education, one has to have the patience as big as a mountain and the dedication and passion of teaching and moulding young minds of the future. 

You have a strong bond among children: If you’re someone who does not get tired of seeing children and you absolutely love to be around them every day even when they drive you up to the wall, then early childhood education might be the right path for you.

You want to be shaping young minds: Early childhood educators have a genuine opportunity to make a difference in young lives and influence the younger generation. They get to ensure that children get off a good start in their lives. 

You enjoy excellent job security: It’s a great time to consider a career in an early childhood education as it has strong growth and is one of the most in-demand professions among the others. 

Career opportunities are endless: There are various professional roles in the industry, so there’s always room for you to grow and challenge yourself in the industry.

What are the Major-Subjects Taught in Early Childhood Education?

2. Be mindful of the closing date

Just like the semester start date and application closing date, scholarship application also has its own deadlines, and it varies depending on the course and the institution. It is important to always be aware of the deadlines for the scholarships you are applying for. Institutions with a high volume of applications are likely to overlook late applications. Therefore it is important to mark the date, so that you will not miss it.

3. What they are looking for

It is essential to know exactly what the scholarship provider is looking for when considering who they will select as the recipient. Some universities require interviews before choosing the right scholarship holder, therefore it is important for you to showcase yourself and articulate why you think you are the best candidate for the scholarship. 

 

Different institutions might require different qualifications. The common ones would be SPM or IGCSE. This article will also talk about the types of scholarships available for different qualifications.

As mentioned above there are different types of scholarships provided by different sectors. In this article, we are giving you a list of scholarships available mainly provided by private universities/colleges.

Study Optometry in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)
The Eyes are the window to your soul. - William Shakespeare

Eyes are one of the most important organs in our body. We walk, read, watch, send text and drive with our eyes being the compass. It is crucial for us to take good care of our eyes because William Shakespeare used to say the eyes are the window to your soul. We can see someone is sleepy, happy or tired based on their eyes. That is why many companies are producing vitamins, contact lenses and eye drops that target the health of the human eyes.

🧐 Fun Fact: You see things upside down – it is your brain which turns the image the right way up.

So, if you want to learn more about the human eyes and thinking to establish a career in this field, first we need to learn the important terminologies, so let’s go!

Ophthalmology –

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. 

Optometry –

Health profession that examines eyes and apply visual systems for eye defects or abnormalities.

Opticianry –

Professional practise of filling prescriptions for eye lenses, dispensing eyeglasses and fitting contact lenses.

Ophthalmologist –

Medical doctor that specializes in eyes treatment.

Optometrist –

Health care professionals who provide primary eye care through comprehensive eye examinations.

Optician –

Trained individuals that design, verify and provide visual systems to correct eyesight.
