Demand set to rise for digital marketing professionals


With the upcoming launch of the National E-commerce Strategic Roadmap (NESR) in Malaysia, the local e-commerce market is expected to boom in 2017. 

This will drive up demand for digital marketing professionals including sales managers, accounts managers and marketing managers with SEO, SEM and Google Analytics experience.

This was among the key findings of our latest Salary Survey 2017

The report added that businesses in Malaysia will remain cautious about hiring and employees will be equally cautious about moving to new roles as more manufacturing companies consider moving offices to Thailand or Vietnam in 2017.

Overall, professionals who take on a new role will be paid salaries that are 15 - 20% higher.
