Apple Inc. has begun hiring employees for a retail push into Malaysia, preparing to bring its chain to the Asian nation for the first time.

The company recently published job listings on its website for locations in Malaysia, seeking store managers, technical specialists and support staff, salespeople for businesses, and operations experts. The listings indicate that the positions will be for Apple’s own retail stores, not third-party reseller locations that have long operated in Malaysia.
