2019 Malaysia Salary Guide

It is that time of the year where we discuss salary. In 2019, we'll see some increment on professions that require programming skills. This isn't a surprise and the demand isn't something new. However, more businesses are recognizing the importance of process automation. In the past few years, we are seeing MNC's hiring for programmers, but next year, smaller boutique companies will follow suit.

We'll save the conversation on job demand in the next post, but now, we'll talk about salary.

We encourage you to use this salary guide as a tool to enhance your career decision. However, it shouldn't be the main source where you pick and choose the job. Bear in mind that your passion, knowledge & skills are the main reasons you should choose your dream job, and not the price tag that comes with it. If you choose the job based on the salary, you will not enjoy your work, hence, you will not thrive in that position.

You will find the salary useful when:

  1. Answering the question of "What is your expected salary?" during a job interview,
  2. If you have doubt that you're underpaid,
  3. To negotiate your salary vs. your tasks & responsibility,
  4. To decide whether you should get a new job. 
The possibility is endless. If you are a HR practitioner, this guide might be useful for you in many ways. 

The salary guide is prepared by Kelly Services.
