You must have skills on top of SPM in order to be more successful in seeking employment.This is a competitive world and nobody will wait for you. The future now lies in technical education and we need the skilled manpower like other developed nations. So, we must take the first step in industrialization. There are quite a number of vocational and training school that can provide technical training. And there has been good response from this schools where students are being  employed even before graduating.”
