"Being listed as one of the most preferred employers in GCA, is a truly significant achievement as it is 100% determined by the votes of Malaysia’s graduates, making it the voice of the next crop of potential employees," said Ben Ho, Talentbank founder, in a statement quoted by The Malaysian Reserve.

Meanwhile, the undergraduates in the survey said their expected starting salary ranges from RM2,500 ($602) to RM3,000 ($722). In terms of employment, the respondents also said their key considerations include good bosses and leaders, salary and bonuses, as well as career development opportunities.

The voting period took place from September 1 last year until July 31, 2021.
