Dear Muruhan,
Is the teaching job a way of getting into Malaysia? Ask your conscience whether what you are considering is ethically right? That is, fully knowing that you do not want to continue in the teaching post, is it right to take up the job and then quit? How would you feel if the school were to terminate you after 6 months?
It all depends upon how the contract is worded.
Hi KMuruhan,
Yes, you can terminate your contract with 6 weeks notice period as per Malayasian Labor Act. Please check the "Termination Clause" carefully before signing the contract. Teaching is a different profile than commercial organisation and its very sensitive.
I know many try get whatever, they get to come aboard but I would ask you to choose the right industry and field before you jump. Wish you all the best.
Having said that Malaysia is a great country to work.

We can help you in recognizing your way to move ahead from the stage where you are standing today, but wont be able to do so until you share your present situation /stage with us which you have not shared with us yet.

I believe before answering your question we must have proper and correct information about you, about your educational qualification and your present work profile /experience because your present query lacking this information, therefore, I request you to provide the same.

You got a job related to TEACHING in Malaysia but seeking "Software Development Jobs" which are totally different functions to each other, needs to be clarify too. Also you need recognize where you are standing today and where you wants to go, in other words, your career goal/ area of interest which are really important and values a lot in terms of CAREER.

few more information need to be shared with us by the following questions:

-What contract T&C's says about your question?

-From how many days/months you are working with them or the period you have completed till the time?

-Why you agreed for this contract if you were not interested in going with it?

-What made you feel to look for this change or wants to cancel the contract?

-Which is your main work /area of function and how many total work experience you have?

-By working as a Teaching faculty, do you think you education qualification

Looking forward to your answers..
Hi Kmuruhan,
It is unethical for you to leave the college or university after they gave you 2 year contract.
Actually, it is not about the college but it\'s your responsibility to complete the cycle/semester so that the students have the right momento to study. Changing the lecturer/teacher during the semester is very painful for the college and the students.
My advise to you to complete at least one year academic cycle before you leave the college/university.
Please think carefully before making the decision.
Be a responsible person so that people will respect you.
