Abstract

Nowadays, as mentioned by the Minister of Human Resource Malaysia, there is a need for an abundant supply of skilled workers and professionals to push forward the Government’s economic agenda.This situation gives great challenges for the education process to revise and update the curriculum to produce graduates with the skills and knowledge needed as entry level employees.Thus, in order to prepare students with the skills needed by the industry, institutes of higher education have introduced “industrial training” or “practicum training” as a component in most of the academic programmes.The purpose of practicum training is to provide opportunity to the students to apply theoretical knowledge obtained in academic programs to a practical work experience.Therefore, this study is carried out to gain the employers’ perception towards the level of preparedness of practicum students to enter the job market.The overall result shows that all the variables gain the mean value above 4.00. It proved that the employers perceived that all the accounting practicum students are excellence in preparing themselves to enter the workplace.
