Research officer - Project name (Former Employee) –  Kuala Lumpur4 January 2020
Working at university of Malaya gives you a good experience if you work as a researcher and you can publish many articles within your contract period. Coming early morning taking your breakfast and start your work under your supervisor or your professor you working with.
lunch at 12 then back to work up to thee. I learned how to search and working with colleagues as a team to publish an article. I got much experience in research and training how to be pacific and precise. The management was very help full and eager to solve any problems you might face. The hardest part of the job is sitting for long times in front of your computer doing the job. the most enjoyably part of the job is that at the end you will get the fruits for your work by publishing your work in and international journals
