Before entering politics, Khaled studied to be a lawyer and worked for the Malaysian oil giant Petronas. In the 1980s he worked as an adviser to Shahrir Abdul Samad, a federal minister. Khaled entered the federal parliament himself at the 1990 election, at the age of 31, winning the seat of Johor Bahru against a Semangat 46 candidate. In 2004 he became the Minister for Entrepreneur and Cooperative Development, and in 2008 was appointed as the Minister for Higher Education.
