Many Malaysian students go overseas to further their education and many choose to stay back in the country after they graduate. Why is this so? They are willing to sacrifice not being with their loved ones and rough it out on their own. Some attribute the reason for not coming back to the absence of equal opportunity for promotion. The pay is also low compared to overseas, like in the United States.
A colleague's son who graduated from a university on the U.S. east coast chose to stay back in the United States. He has secured a job but is thinking of switching jobs looking out for some Philadelphia jobs that are closer to his field of study and interests.
