Is your job is among the best paid in Malaysia? You are just about to find out.
When choosing a career, besides looking for jobs that are meaningful
and challenging, it is equally important to look at the salary
prospects. Everybody needs to make money to make ends meet and be able
to fund their lifestyle and various financial commitments.
In fact, 53% of Malaysians consider salary and benefits as a top
priority when choosing a job, according to The 2016 Hays Asia Salary
Guide. In other words, 5 out of 10 Malaysians view salary prospect as
one of the main deciding factor when choosing a job or career.
Besides that, Malaysians also view the availability of new challenges
and career progression – as the next two important factors when
considering a job opportunity.
Though salary is seen as an important factor for Malaysians, there
are more than one survey to back-up the fact that Malaysians are
generally not satisfied with their salaries. A survey by Salary Explorer
revealed that Malaysians scored only 2.42 in salary satisfaction, just a
little higher than global average of 2.36. Seems like the world
generally feels that their salaries do not commensurate with their work
load or cater for their basic commitments.
JobStreet’s survey on Employees’ Job Satisfaction in Malaysia showed
that in terms of salary, 61% of the total respondents felt that their
salaries were low or not enough to survive with. It’s important to find
the balance between salary and job satisfaction.
So, where do the big bucks actually come from?
Salary Explorer recently released its 2016 Highest Paying Jobs
rankings, which determines the best occupations in the country based on
the average monthly salary. Not surprisingly, all of these top jobs come
with six-figure salaries — a month!
If we look at these top 10 high-paying professions, there’s a few
common threads: higher educational qualification, in-demand skills,
years of experience and low automation or competition.
If you are looking to earn more in the coming year, the infographic shows a compiled a list of jobs that pay the best.
However, keep in mind that there you are compensated with a higher
salary in most of these jobs for obvious reasons, such as long working
hours, increased levels of responsibility or subordinates, higher
traveling frequency, long back-breaking stand-by hours – or in other
words, simply added work stress.
Although salary is an important factor when one chooses his/her
profession, it is equally important to choose a job based on one’s
passion. If you are doing something that you are passionate about, you
will naturally be good at your job.
Striking a balance between the two is the key to a successful career
progression, and hopefully, the income will increase in tandem with the
progression. Remember, no matter how high your salary is, money
doesn’t buy happiness.
