Today, after assisting over 5,000 MAS staff and personnel from other companies transition to new career beginnings, we are proud to be Malaysia’s trusted career catalysts. And we have a new name: CDC Malaysia.
We specialise primarily in individuals’ professional advancement following a major corporate and manpower restructuring event.
